Ducane Furnace Buyers Guide

Here at High Performance HVAC, we have an HVAC Equipment Buyers Guide that will help you make a new purchase. It will help you through the process of buying new equipment including a Ducane gas furnace. Some highlights from the guide include:

  1. Always get at least 3 bids from contractors when purchasing new equipment.
  2. The lowest bid is not always the best. It is the quality of the contractor. Someone who is going to do the job right the first time. A bad installation will give you frustration for the life of the equipment. Additionally, a bad installation will also fail at giving you the rated efficiency of the equipment.
  3. Never fail to get a load calculation from the contractor. Never base the sizing on the old equipment and never use the rule of thumbs.
  4. For forced-air systems, make sure the ductwork is good. Buying an efficient gas furnace and installing it into bad ductwork will not give you the rated efficiency.
  5. If the manufacturer offers a labor warranty purchase it especially for the premium models.
  6. Brand of equipment is a secondary consideration. Quality of contractor is the first.
