How to Choose the Right Furnace
The size of the furnace will ensure that your home is as efficient as possible. Your HVAC technician will offer suggestions based on the size of your home and take the home’s insulation into consideration.
The most common type of furnace system is gas, but there are also boilers, which use water, or heat pumps, which are essentially air conditioners in reverse that use an electrical system to pull heat from the outside. Heat pumps aren’t the best option for the Northern Colorado climate, however.
The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency Rating (AFUE), will tell you how efficient the furnace is. A rating between 60 and 80 percent is common, but it can reach up to 98 percent. You can also look at the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which will help you find a cost-efficient furnace.
