Questions To Ask When Buying A Furnace

When shopping for a major item like a new furnace it’s very important to use a Minneapolis Heating technician who is familiar with the product and able to perform warranty work should the need ever arise. Just like an automobile, if you buy a Chevrolet you have it serviced by a GM dealer. The following is a list of important questions to ask when you are shopping for a furnace.

  1. What type of furnace do I need?
  2. How many BTU’s?
  3. What efficiency should I have?
  4. Is the existing duct (supply and return) adequate?
  5. Should I have more supply air and what about basement return air?
  6. Does the venting need to be changed for the new furnace?
  7. Is the hot water tank venting the proper size and gauge?
  8. Are there advantages to a continuous low speed fan?
  9. Will my old thermostat work with a new furnace?
  10. How often should I change or clean the furnace filter?
  11. What can I do as a homeowner to keep my furnace running at the highest efficiency possible?

Upgrading or replacing the unit with a high-efficiency model will provide substantial savings. If you are thinking about retrofitting your Minneapolis home with a new high-efficiency furnace, you may want to speak to an energy efficiency advisor.
