Best Furnace For Your House
When choosing the best furnace for your home, there are several factors to _consider. The choice you make will provide lasting comfort and savings for your family, so it is important to educate yourself. In this article we will discuss the benefits of choosing a high-efficiency furnace, choosing a proper size furnace, and choosing the proper fuel. These three factors will determine what furnace will be the best choice to provide for your family’s heating needs.
FUEL TYPE: Most furnaces in Chicago run on natural gas. Polar Heating and Air Conditioning offers a complete selection of gas furnaces including Rheem Furnaces, Trane Furnaces, Carrier Furnaces, Lennox Furnaces and many more. We offer guaranteed best pricing and will beat written estimates by at least 5% on any gas furnace.
EFFICIENCY: Furnace fuel efficiency is rated by how much of the energy used by a gas furnace is actually converted into heat for the home. An example would be that if a furnace is rated as 95% efficient, then 95% of the energy used is converted into useable heat and only 5% is wasted. The same is true for an 80% efficient furnace. 80% of the energy is converted while 20% is lost out the chimney. That is why it is important to choose a higher efficiency furnace to take advantage of long term energy / money savings. The initial higher cost of a high efficiency furnace can often be offset by utility company and tax incentives. Polar Heating and Air Conditioning has partnered with all Chicago, Suburban, and NW Indiana Utility companies to offer any existing rebates on high efficiency heating equipment.
FURNACE SIZE: One mistake homeowners make is buying a furnace that is too large or too small for their home. If a furnace is too small, it may not provide sufficient heating for your entire home. Conversely, if a furnace is too large, the unit may cycle on and off excessively, which will send the wasted heat up the chimney. Polar Heating and Air Conditioning employs NATE® Certified technicians that are trained to calculate your home’s BTU requirements to ensure that your are purchasing the best furnace for your needs.
