The time always comes to have your heating system replaced; sometimes it is a full 20 years after the initial installation and sometimes it’s sooner, but it always happens. This may cost more upfront, but you will realize increased savings and a lower environmental impact moving forward. If your furnace requires frequent repairs and the amounts are starting to get out of hand, you should also consider replacement.
Remember, sometimes doing ongoing repair is not sufficient to properly fix your furnace. At this point, a new furnace is probably the most cost effective and energy efficient way to go.
And at Green Breeze we’ll always be honest, and will never perform repairs or service on an appliance that is need of replacement. And we’ll never have you replace a perfectly good system.

What are the different types of furnaces?
Single Stage: This type of furnace has only one stage of operation. It can either be turned on or turned off.
Two Stage: This type of furnace has two settings, full and half speed. This is a more efficient way to heat, providing for better comfort because air moves around at a slower pace.
Variable Stage or Modulating: This furnace modulates both the speed and heat output based on the temperature outside, as well as the desired comfort level. This furnace only works as much as you need it, this makes it the most energy efficient type of furnaces.
AFUE, or Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is a term that you should be getting to know. This is the measure of furnace heating efficiency. The higher the AFUE, the more efficient the furnace. So you should be looking for a high AFUE rate on your furnace relative to the cost of the furnace and installation.
Here are Green Breeze, we calculate the correct size furnace for your home, as well as the BTUs (British Thermal Units) needed to heat your home. This is dependent on a number of variables; however, contrary to what you might think, a bigger furnace may not necessarily mean more heating power for your home.
