The Factors That Affect Furnace System Performance
Make no mistake: a new furnace entails a significant investment. Moreover, today’s marketplace offers a seemingly limitless number of models and features. Still, professionals can help you narrow down furnace choices by considering their fuel types, operation, AFUE ratings, and more:
- Fuel types: electric, natural gas, oil, propane
- Heat stages: single-stage, multistage, modulating
- AFUE rating: Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency; 90 – 98.5% AFUE is considered high-efficiency
- Cost: additional features, customization, and increased efficiency come with a higher price tag
Beyond these factors, you must decide whether you want a furnace alone or an AC and furnace replacement unit.
A new furnace can help homeowners save money and even pay for itself. It will require far fewer repairs and much greater efficiency than an antiquated unit. Many high-efficiency models come with a tax credit as well.
R. A. Dobson’s Best Furnace Options
- Carrier Furnace 58SBO
A Carrier product provider, R. A. Dobson offers several furnace options. The Comfort™ 80 Gas Furnace, a sturdy unit well-suited for Virginia’s relatively mild winters, is among the bestsellers. Although it delivers modest energy efficiency and comfort features, this model’s best value lies in its size options and warranty coverage. We offer numerous sizes to suit every homeowner’s needs, backed by 10-year parts and 20-year heat exchanger limited warranties.
- Carrier Infinity® Furnace 58TNO
A model we’ve discussed previously, the Infinity® 80 Gas Furnace works well alongside a high-efficiency heat pump or air conditioner unit. Such synergy can boost cooling system efficiency and summertime dehumidification efforts. The Infinity® 80 also comes in various sizes and backed by robust warranties.
- Carrier Furnace 59TN6B
With greater efficiency than the previous two models, the Infinity® 96 Gas Furnace has a variable-speed, constant airflow (VCA) ECM blower motor for electrical operation alongside gas. Its 96.7% AFUE rating makes it ENERGY STAR® certified and capable of premium savings. Best of all, it operates in near-silence thanks to a fully insulated cabinet.
- Carrier Furnace 59SC5B
Another high-efficiency model, the Comfort™ 95 Gas Furnace boasts a 96.5% AFUE rating and ENERGY STAR® certification. It also comes with an ECM blower motor equipped with multiple speed options. Like all the models above, its excellent warranty coverage protects your investment in interior comfort.
