When it comes to home heating, gas furnaces are by far the most popular choice. But whether you are sure a gas furnace is right for your home or you are simply exploring your options, you will have a lot of options to consider before you can settle on the right product for your home.

Types of Furnaces
There are several main types of furnaces on the market today, and the most popular by far are gas furnaces. Just about any gas furnace you buy today will be highly energy efficient, nearly silent when in operation, and quite affordable when it comes to purchase and installation costs. However, if you do not have access to natural gas lines in your area, there are other options.
Once you know what type of furnace you want to buy, you must figure out what size it needs to be to serve your house satisfactorily. A furnace that is too small will run constantly and may never really get the temperature in your home to a comfortable level for any length of time. But you do not want to just go out and buy the biggest furnace you can either. A furnace that is too large for your home will often make it uncomfortably hot by producing powerful blasts of hot air followed by a period of inactivity. This constant cycling on and off is not good for the furnace and it will not help to keep your indoor environment comfortable. Plus, a larger furnace costs more to begin with, so there’s the potential for wasted money as well.
