Choose Right Furnace

How do you choose the right furnace for your Portland area residence?

Choosing the ideal furnace system is not as simple as one might think. It isn’t as simple as choosing a refrigerator, for example. Issues such as comfort, aesthetics, air quality and other environmental concerns matter as much or more than the amount of money you are investing in the furnace.

Trane FurnacesTo start, you should work with a professional contractor who can help you narrow down the choices. The primary factors to be considered when selecting a furnace include:

  1. Fuel type – your choices may be limited or dictated by your home’s location, the type of system you have, and even the existing utilities available in your home.
  2. Efficiency – involves reviewing the efficiency rating. The efficiency rating tells you how much total energy is used to deliver heat to your home. The higher the efficiency rating, the better the furnace is predicted to function and the lower your heating bills will be.
  3. Size – the best way to ensure you choose a properly sized unit is by having your home’s heating requirements (Btu/hour) calculated. This involves a relatively complicated process of determining the area, the insulation level, and estimating your air infiltration.
