Furnaces are reliable, durable, cost-effective, and relatively efficient heating systems. These characteristics have made them popular and widespread as America’s preferred heating system choice. Furnaces can be scaled for different-sized housing and are reliable for several decades.

Furnace Installation and Replacement
The first step to replacing a heating system is to determine the required heat load of your home. Our technicians will analyze your home’s heat load to calculate the necessary furnace size by considering things like square footage, ceiling height, insulation, and more.
Choosing an appropriately sized heater that isn’t too small or too large is essential. Furnaces that are too small won’t effectively heat your space, and ones too large will cycle on and off too quickly, putting the equipment under unnecessary stress.
The next decision is the type of fuel. Generally, natural gas furnaces are the most popular choice, though electric furnaces and heat pumps are also good options. Heat pumps are incredibly efficient and also function as an air conditioner, but they generally have a higher upfront cost. Electric furnaces are a good choice if you don’t want to pay the upfront cost of a heat pump, don’t have a natural gas hookup, or are uncomfortable with natural gas in your home.
Because they are highly efficient, gas furnaces are typically the most popular option. Some gas furnaces have an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating of up to 98 percent, which means almost all the fuel they consume goes directly into heat. For these higher-rated furnaces to reach maximum efficiency, they generally require upgrades to your fuel line and other components of your home ventilation system. Even standard-grade gas furnaces are efficient and affordable, making them the traditional choice.
Heating systems should be installed by professional HVAC technicians, especially if you are working with natural gas pipelines. Call Anthony Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric for expert gas or electric furnace installation and replacement services in Kansas City.
Furnaces should receive regular maintenance visits once a year, preferably in early fall. This allows technicians to check for problems and ensure no blockages, faulty components, or loose electrical connections. A properly maintained furnace has an extended lifespan and works with top efficiency. If you need a furnace tune-up in Kansas City, call Anthony to discuss one of our furnace maintenance plans.
As furnaces age, their efficiency declines. Once it gets too old, it’s time to replace it. However, if your furnace is under 15 years old and the efficiency drops, it may need repaired.
