Choosing The Right Furnace For Your Home

Choosing the Right Furnace for Your Home

When the temperature starts to drop, you need to know that your heating system is going to deliver the warm air that keeps your home cozy through the chill of fall and winter.  With suitable components and regular servicing, you’ll gain both comfort and peace of mind, but first, you have to choose the right furnace for your home.

Which Heating and Cooling System is the Best?

There is no one right answer here.  Every homeowner has different needs when it comes to their HVAC system.  There are a few types of HVAC systems to choose from, although only a couple are recommended for the temperatures in Southern California.

You hardly need a boiler system like those often found in northern states – this would be overkill for mild, California winters.  Some people like heat pump systems that work in both warm and cool weather conditions, but if you’re in an area where temperatures can drop pretty low at night, a gas furnace might be a better option.  Dual fuel systems that switch between electric and gas operation based on demand can help to increase energy efficiency in your home if you run the HVAC system a lot.

Which Heating System is Best for My Home?

The best heating system for your home will depend on a number of factors, including the size and age of your home, the temperatures in your region, and the demand you place on the system, as well as your desired level of energy efficiency.  With help from the expert at Rowland Air, you can find the best heating system to serve your particular needs.

Which Heating System is Most Efficient?

As noted above, dual fuel systems could deliver the greatest energy efficiency, but keep in mind that modern technologies like programmable thermostats can help you to boost energy efficiency with any system, especially when they connect to smartphone apps that allow you to make adjustments remotely.

Who Makes Furnaces?

There are a number of reputable manufacturers that produce high-quality and long-lasting HVAC components, such as Lennox, etc.  The team at Rowland Air has the knowledge and experience to help you choose the right furnace to meet all your needs.

Which Furnace has the Best Warranty?

Warranties will vary by brand and product, so it’s important to understand what you’re getting before you buy.  The best warranties tend to feature two main components: a lifetime guarantee on the heat exchanger and 10 years limited warranty on parts.  Many manufacturers offer something similar.

How Many Furnaces Do I Need?

Most homes will need only one furnace for functional heating. This is because furnaces come in a variety of sizes and outputs, so you should be able to find one adequate for your square footage.
