Buying a New Furnace: What to Consider

Measuring a house for a furnace

If you’re in the Oakland County area and you’re looking to buy a new furnace, then Sun Heating & Cooling is here to help!

It’s important to consider all your options before making such a big investment. Here are some of the things that you should think about when buying a new furnace.

1. The size of the furnace

The size of the furnace is dependent on the size of your house and how much heating capacity it requires. If you have an older home, it may require a larger unit than a newer home due to the changes in construction practices, insulation efficiencies, and the like. Also to be considered is the overall square footage of your house and how many rooms you need to heat. Of course, determining this is exactly what a Sun expert is here for!

2. The efficiency rating of the furnace

The higher the efficiency rating, the more energy efficient it is, which can save you money in energy costs over time. Look for furnaces with an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating of 90 or higher. This means that 90% or more of the energy used by the furnace is converted into heat for your home. 

3. The budget – how much can you afford to spend on a new furnace

Prices for home heating systems vary depending on size, quality, and efficiency level.  Consulting with an expert from Sun will provide you with peace of mind knowing that you are choosing a system that is right for your home, your family, and your wallet.  Sun also provides a variety of financing options to make the purchase more affordable over time.

4. Additional features

When meeting with an expert from Sun, ask questions about the features of the different furnace models…Some come with features like variable-speed fans, two-stage heating systems, humidity control, and automatic shutoff switches. All these features can help improve your overall comfort level while also providing cost savings on energy bills over time. Also, consider air quality improvement accessories if anyone in your family suffers from allergies or other airborne sensitivities.
