How to Choose a New Furnace?

Choosing a new heating system does not have to be an overwhelming task. In fact, with a little guidance from our trained experts, the process can be rather simple. Just keep in mind what is most important to your home and family, and you won’t go wrong. 

Energy Savings

System efficiencies range from 80%-98%, the higher the efficiency the greater the long-term energy savings.

Temperature Control

Furnaces come with various types of motors including a basic PSC to a more advanced ECM. Furnaces with ECM variable-speed motors give you greater control over airflow, therefore reducing temperature swings and energy usage.


A zoned system offers you the flexibility to heat different areas of your home to different temperatures. In comparison, a non-zoned system you heat the entire home to the same temperature greatly increasing the likelihood of temperature swings from room to room.


If you’re looking for the latest in technology including features such as remote system monitoring, advanced programming, efficiency reporting, service alerts and reminders, as well as system diagnostics – ask a sales associate to tell you more about our communicating line of heating products.


If your heating system is located in a high traffic area of your home, the overall noise level of the system may be of importance to you. We offer a full line of systems that range from moderate sound to whisper quiet performance.
