Fuel Type: Finding the Right Fit for Your Heating Needs

One of the most critical factors to consider when choosing a new furnace is fuel type. There are several options available, each with its unique advantages and considerations:

  1. Natural Gas: This is the most common fuel choice for furnaces due to its wide availability and generally lower cost compared to other options. Natural gas furnaces are efficient and provide quick and consistent heating.
  2. Propane: Propane furnaces are an option for homes without access to natural gas lines. Propane is typically more expensive than natural gas but offers comparable efficiency and heating capabilities.
  3. Electric: Electric furnaces are popular in regions where natural gas and propane are not readily available. While they are often less expensive to install, electric furnaces tend to have higher operating costs due to electricity prices.

Legacy Heating can help assess your specific heating needs and provide expert recommendations on the most suitable fuel type for your furnace.

Size Matters: The Importance of Proper Furnace Sizing

Selecting the right furnace size is crucial to achieving optimal heating efficiency and maintaining a comfortable indoor environment. An undersized furnace may struggle to heat your home adequately, while an oversized one may cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wasted energy and uneven temperatures. Factors influencing furnace size include:

  1. Home size: The square footage of your home directly affects the furnace’s required capacity. Larger homes require a more powerful furnace to heat the entire space effectively.
  2. Insulation: A well-insulated home retains heat more efficiently, which can impact the furnace size required. Upgrading your insulation can lead to energy savings and may allow you to opt for a smaller furnace.
  3. Climate: In colder climates, such as Calgary and Edmonton, a more powerful furnace may be necessary to maintain a comfortable temperature during the frigid winter months.

Legacy Heating’s professionals can properly assess your home’s heating requirements and guide you in selecting the appropriate furnace size for your needs.

Furnace Efficiency: Balancing Savings and Performance

Furnace efficiency is an essential consideration, as it directly impacts your energy consumption and utility costs. Higher-efficiency furnaces typically have a higher upfront cost but offer long-term energy savings. Furnace efficiency is indicated by its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating, which measures the percentage of fuel converted to heat:

High efficiency (90-98% AFUE): High-efficiency furnaces boast better fuel utilization, resulting in lower energy consumption and utility costs. While they have a higher upfront cost, the long-term savings can be significant.

Legacy Heating can help you weigh the pros and cons of various furnace efficiency options and guide you towards a choice that balances cost savings and performance.
