Are you considering upgrading or replacing your current heating systems? When properly cared for, a furnace should last about 15 to 20 years.

Older furnaces just don’t run as efficiently as they once did and require more maintenance.

Heating System FAQs

What is two-stage heating? 

Two-stage heating means the furnace has two levels of heat output:  high for cold winter days, and low for milder days.  Since the low setting is adequate to meet household heating demands 80% of the time, a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and provides more even heat distribution.  

What is AFUE? 

Your furnace’s AFUE, Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, percentage tells you how much energy is being converted to heat.  For example, an AFUE of 90 means 90 percent of the fuel is being used to warm your home, while the other 10 percent escapes as exhaust with the combustion gases. 

What is variable speed technology? 

“Variable speed” refers to the fan motor inside the air handler:  the indoor part of an air conditioner that moves cooled or heated air throughout the ductwork of your home.  An air handler is usually a furnace or a blower coil.  Unlike conventional single-speed motors, a variable-speed motor runs at a wide range of speeds to precisely control the air throughout your home.
