Buying a New Furnace

When it comes to Kansas City furnace installation, locals know and trust Apex for all their furnace needs. If you are thinking about upgrading your furnace, we are here to help. Here are a few issues to keep in mind if you are buying a new furnace:

  • Efficiency. The efficiency of your furnace matters. In 1992, the United States Department of Energy adopted new efficiency guidelines. While these were a step in the right direction, they allow for a significant amount of variation in furnace efficiency. Furnace efficiency is measured by AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. The AFUE of a new furnace can vary from 80 to 98.5. The higher the rating, the more efficient the furnace. Purchasing a more efficient unit may cost more upfront but can save you hundreds if not thousands over the life of your furnace. Contact us today for help determining the most efficient furnace you can purchase for your budget.
  • Size. The size of your furnace is extremely important. It needs to be sized to fit your home. If your furnace is too small, it won’t heat your home efficiently. It will work too hard and put unnecessary strain on the unit. If your furnace is too large, you will waste fuel generating more heat than you actually need. Our heating technicians will help you choose the right size furnace for your home to help optimize efficiency.
  • Rebates. Many companies offer rebates and incentives for purchasing a new furnace. We can help you choose a high quality product that will maximize the money you spend.
