Save on Your Energy Bill and Install a New Furnace
There are mainly two types of furnaces for homes- gas furnaces and oil furnaces. The most common type in the U.S is the gas furnace, which uses propane or natural gas as fuel. Oil furnaces can still be found in some homes, if the owner is able to procure fuel oil.
Older gas furnaces have an AFUE (annual fuel efficiency rating) of 68 percent to 72 percent. The annual fuel efficiency rating refers to the amount of fuel the system is able to convert into heat. The latest gas furnaces have AFUE ratings of up to 97 percent.

A furnace can be bulky, so it is best to place it in the basement. If you do not have a basement, you can even place the furnace in a crawl space (if it is wide enough) or an attic. There are many brands of furnaces available in the US. The most popular ones are Trane, Ruud, Rheem, Lennox, Carrier, American Standard and Bryant.
