If you do need a furnace replacement, we know how overwhelming it can be. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about furnaces that we get from some of our Howell, NJ residents:

What Are The Different Types Of Furnaces?

Single Stage: A single-stage furnace has only one stage of operation. It can either be turned on or turned off.

Two Stage: A two-stage furnace has two settings––full and half speed. This is a more efficient way to heat and provides for better comfort, because it can move the air at a slower pace.

Variable Stage or Modulating: A variable-stage or modulating furnace modulates the speed and heat output based on the temperature outside and the desired comfort level. This furnace only works as much as you need it, making this type the most energy-efficient type of furnace.

What Is AFUE?

AFUE, or Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is a measure of furnace-heating efficiency. The higher the AFUE, the more efficient the furnace.

What Size Furnace Do I Need?

We can calculate the correct size furnace for your home. The number of BTUs, or British Thermal Units, needed to heat your home is dependent on a number of variables. Contrary to what you might think, a bigger furnace may not necessarily mean more heating power for your home. Call us at 1st Choice Heating and Air Conditioning, and we can set up an appointment to calculate the furnace size you might need.

Gas Furnace Replacement in Freehold, NJ 07728

“A year ago we had 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning replace our upstairs zone furnace and air conditioner. Their work was exemplary. Consequently when we were having some recurring issues with our downstairs units we knew 1st Choice were the professionals to call. As he did previously, Chris Riley (a very hands-on owner) thoroughly assessed the situation, made numerous recommendations and devised a remediation plan that was comprehensive and within our budget. In addition to installing more efficient units, 1st Choice also made significant improvements to the duct work; sealing seams and joints, eliminating angles and elbows that constricted air flow and other general improvements that resulted in significantly better heating. When designing a solution 1st Choice assesses the entire living area calculating room sizes (including ceiling heights), windows, doors, insulation etc. to determine the proper sized units needed to effectively and efficiently heat and cool the space. Each job is viewed from a total engineering perspective, which is exactly the proper approach for HVAC solutions. The 1st Choice technicians are some of the best we’ve encountered. Each activity is thoroughly explained and they treat your home as if it were their own. When work is complete the area is completely cleaned and they do not depart until all questions are answered and you’re satisfied. 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning is an excellent company and should be your first choice for heating and air conditioning sales and service. Very highly recommended.”

“We recently selected 1st Choice to replace an old furnace and a/c unit in our home and couldn’t be more pleased with their work.

Chris Riley (principal owner) was one of the most knowledgeable and forthright heating and A/C professionals we’ve dealt with. He conducted a thorough analysis of our home, room by room, and recommended three potential systems that were appropriate for the job. He then described the features and attributes of each system, making sure every question was answered thoroughly. There was absolutely no pressure during the sales process as he wants you to be comfortable with whatever decision you make.

The technicians who installed the system we selected were superb. They treated our home as if it was their own, making sure all floors and stairs were covered. They even wore protective covers on their shoes to ensure nothing from the outside was tracked into the house. At the end of the day all debris was removed and all work areas cleaned. They explained every task needed to be done to completely install the system and conducted a comprehensive review when done.

Chris followed up a few days later with his own on-site review to ensure everything was calibrated and set properly and to again make sure we were satisfied with their work. We most certainly were. 1st Choice is an excellent company to do business with, focused on attaining the highest level of customer satisfaction and building long-term relationships between themselves and their customers. We strongly recommend them.”
