A furnace is one of the best safeguards against the cold. If you are not sure about what kind of furnace you want to install in your Columbia area home, contact MasterTech today. Never try to install a furnace on your own. Furnaces contain delicate electrical equipment which can be damaged if they are handled by an amateur. Then there is also the safety factor.

Save on Your Energy Bill and Install a New Furnace
There are mainly two types of gas 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.
The most common third option is an electric furnace, which is another choice to use instead of natural gas furnaces. However, the amount of electricity needed to heat the coils can cause your electric bill to rise significantly.
One of the best choices you can make for your furnace installation is a heat pump. In addition to transferring heat from one air source to another air stream, they also act like an air conditioner in the hot months. If you choose a heat pump for your home in Boonville, no furnace installation projects will be appearing on your to-do list.
We Will Replace and Install Any Furnace Brand in Your Columbia Home
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), an attic or a utility closet. There are many brands of furnaces available in the US. The most popular ones are Bryant, Trane, Heil, York, Ruud, Rheem, Lennox, Carrier, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Payne and American Standard.
