Best Furnace Services in Columbus, Ohio

Quality Furnace Services in Columbus Area

Columbus residents have many options when selecting a new unit to heat their homes. A boiler or heat pump is a fine choice, but many people in the area turn to furnaces to complete their heating and cooling system. While an air conditioner produces efficient cooling throughout the summer, a furnace will deliver plenty of usable heat to keep your family warm all winter long.

If you need a new heating system for your Columbus, OH area house, there are many factors that homeowners need to be aware of. When shopping for natural gas furnaces, a propane furnace, or oil furnaces, furnace cost, new furnace technology, and the AFUE efficiency rating are all elements that will affect your decision.

New Furnace Options for Columbus, Ohio Homes

Replacing your old unit is the best way to gain the energy efficiency and energy savings you want while eliminating comfort issues such as cold spots and not enough heat.

Whether you choose the high efficiencies offered by ENERGY STAR rated furnaces or select a standard model gas furnace or oil furnace at a lower cost, a new furnace is able to offer the efficient performance that older heating and cooling systems fail to deliver.

Many homeowners choose to buy a new furnace due to frustrations after watching heating costs rise year after year.

If high efficiency is what you seek, explore options with a high AFUE rating such as a two stage gas furnace or condensing furnace with a secondary heat exchanger that essentially converts combustion exhaust byproducts into more usable heat for your home. If furnace cost is a concern and you need a budget-friendly choice, we can help you evaluate a range of single stage furnaces that deliver dependable heat at a price you can afford.

Features of New Gas Furnaces and Oil Furnaces

A furnace is a type of heating system that uses fuel to generate heat. A natural gas furnace or oil furnace burns fuel in a process called combustion which makes usable heat to create heated air. A furnace that operates using electricity has electric heating elements that generate heat to raise the temperature inside a house.

When shopping for a furnace to have installed in your house, there are a range of options to choose from. There are different types of furnaces with various technology features designed to save users money with high annual fuel utilization efficiency ratings, as well as qualities to make for a pleasant user experience.

Before you select a new natural gas furnace or oil furnace for installation in your Columbus home, here are some of the important furnace qualities you should consider as you choose which unit to purchase.

System Energy Efficiency

The energy efficiency rating of a furnace is the unit AFUE rating, which stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency. A heat pump on the other hand displays its heating efficiency rating as HSPF, which means heating seasonal performance factor. The minimum efficiency rating for any furnace you wish to buy will be 80% AFUE, though the efficiency rating can go all the way up to around a 98% AFUE rating. High efficiency furnaces such as a variable speed gas furnace with a variable speed blower, variable speed fan, and multi stage gas valve, or a condensing furnace with secondary heat exchanger are considered high efficiency models. Single stage gas furnaces are typically standard efficiency furnaces.

Furnaces with the ENERGY STAR label are high efficiency and are a great option if you wish to save money on energy bills. An electric furnace or heat pump will offer the highest AFUE rating but they can be expensive to operate due to energy costs. How gas and oil furnaces work involves the combustion of fuel to heat the air and raise the indoor temperature of the house, and access to natural gas or heating oil is required. Consider utility prices for natural gas, electricity, and heating oil before you decide which fuel type to use for your new heating system.

Heating Technology

Different types of technology are featured in a furnace, which allows the unit to make more efficient use of energy in various ways. Basic furnace models operate at a single speed at all times. These furnaces generate the most energy waste and cost the most to operate as there are no controls to vary operating speeds. However, basic models a like single stage gas systems have lower purchase costs, as the unit efficiency rating typically correlates with upfront costs.

A two stage gas furnace can operate at high speed as needed, but the majority of the time its controls will access low speeds to save energy and cut utility costs. Even at low speeds, the unit delivers a steady stream of heated air and keep the temperature held steady inside the house. To keep the temperature held steady in the house, the system continuously delivers heat in rooms throughout the living space. This type of system generally delivers better indoor air quality compared to a furnace with lower efficiency.
