A Buying Guide for Gas Furnaces

There's nothing worse than a broken furnace in the dead of winter. Allow Rusk Heating & Cooling to help you get through Cincinnati's notoriously cold winters! Start here with our gas furnace buying guide:

Find the right size

First and foremost, choose a furnace that fits your family's needs. Buying a smaller furnace may be less expensive up-front, but it won't cool your house properly. If your furnace is too big, you'll pay more in initial costs and waste energy when it's running. We can calculate your heating needs to make sure your home is comfortable and as energy-efficient as possible.

Look for the AFUE rating

Most gas furnaces from the 1970s have an AFUE (annual fuel-utilization-efficiency) of about 65 percent. Today's most efficient models can reach 97 percent -- near-total efficiency. Our team of professionals will install an energy-efficient heater that will help to conserve energy and lower your monthly bills.
