October 18, 2019

If you are building a new home, adding additional space to your home or replacing an old, worn-out furnace in your existing home, you can look to Quinte Air Supply in Belleville, ON, to make the right choice. Knowing the questions to ask while you are shopping will help to ensure that you purchase the furnace that satisfies your needs.

What Size Furnace Do You Need?

You want to make sure you purchase the right size furnace for the area you are heating. You also need to take into account the types and placement of windows and what type of insulation is present. An experienced contractor like Quinte Air Supply can come to your home and help you determine the best size furnace for your home in Belleville.

What Fuel Does the Furnace Burn?

Forced air heating systems are among the most common. A furnace might burn natural gas, heating oil, propane or use electricity to heat air that is then distributed throughout your home via ductwork.

What Is a Ductless Heating System?

A ductless heater consists of a wall-mounted indoor unit used in combination with an outdoor compressor. The professionals from Quinte Air Supply will work with you to determine what type of system is best for your home.

What Is the Efficiency Rating of the Furnace?

To save on operating costs, you want a new furnace with a medium to high AFUE rating. A medium rating is between 80 and 83 percent, and a high rating is in the 90 to 98 percent range.
