There are several factors for you to consider in choosing the right furnace.
Features. For example, extra quiet construction, ability to remove hot and cold spots, can be combined with an air conditioner or heat pump, and can work with an advanced thermostat that has smart phone access.
Energy efficiency. Modern furnaces range between 80% and 98.3% energy efficiency and that difference can be a meaningful change in the amount you pay for your gas or propane bill.
Size. Not only does size matter in efficiency but it affects the length of life of the furnace, quality of it’s operation, parts wear out and your comfort. The good news is that you don’t have to guess at the size, your qualified contractor does a heat loss calculation (per Washington State Code) and provides you with the correct size.
The Contractor. Yes, if you read Consumer Reports, Consumers Digest or even our local Checkbook, the number one determinant of a quality heating system is the installation. Washington Energy’s installers are all our own employees, never a subcontractor. They are NATE certified (industry certification) and Bryant Factory Certified, so you know they have been trained on the specific products they are installing.
