As far as heating systems go, furnaces represent the most powerful on the market. No other device can produce as much heat as consistently as a furnace and, increasingly, they are becoming quite energy efficient. This efficiency depends on the way in which the furnace is powered.

Need a New Furnace in Mission Viejo?
The first step in furnace installation and replacement is choosing a new furnace for your home. There are many factors to consider in this process. First, you must select a model that is the right size for your home. Many people mistakenly assume that a larger device will be better: this is not true. While a furnace that is too small will not provide enough heating for your home on cold nights, a model that is too large has its own issues.
Not only does an oversized furnace cost you more money than necessary, but it doesn’t operate as intended. Instead of turning on and providing a steady stream of warm air all day, it will blast a large burst of hot air into your home and then turn off. This results in uneven heating with cold and hot spots, putting unnecessary wear on your heating system.
Another factor to consider when choosing a new furnace is its energy efficiency. Gas furnaces are usually more energy efficient than electric furnaces, so if you have gas available these models will cost less to operate over their lifespan. When choosing a gas furnace, you can select one with an AFUE rating of between 80% and 98%. The higher the rating, the more of the fuel consumed is used to produce heat. Keep in mind that while high AFUE rated furnaces do cost more money, they often come with other benefits that can make your heating system a better investment.
Other Factors to Consider in Furnace Installation and Repair
If you select a gas furnace there are a number of issues to consider regarding the ventilation of exhaust fumes. If your existing furnace is old you will likely need an upgrade to your home’s chimney flue to accommodate the denser, cooler exhaust produced by newer furnaces.
Other issues that may need to be addressed include aging or insufficient air handlers, ductwork testing, and the inspection and removal of your existing heating system before installation begins. These are all issues that we will handle for you professionally and quickly to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
