As you are comparing the different models, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. However, there are also certain steps in the installation process to think about as well, such as what to expect before the furnace can be installed and what type of service to expect from a qualified technician.
Before replacing a furnace, you should have a professional HVAC technician or contractor perform a load calculation. This means that the contractor will determine how many BTUs of output you need. Once this is determined, your contractor will ensure that you get the correct size for your particular home, depending on the square footage of the area you want to heat. Part of the service includes removing the old furnace, connecting the new one to the thermostat (or upgrading the thermostat as well), and testing the system to ensure that everything is working properly.
If you have decided to switch from electricity to natural gas, make sure it is available to your home and that the installation of a new gas line is still cost-effective. Also make sure that when you upgrade your furnace your home has enough insulation to ensure that you are getting the savings you desire. Losing heat through a poorly-insulated attic won’t provide the savings you could get with an efficient home.
