Gas Furnaces in St. Louis. A new gas furnace isn’t something that pops up on many birthday wish-lists — buying a new furnace in St. Louis is often reserved for the hurried state that comes after an emergency furnace breakdown, when a St. Louis homeowner is just trying to find the best deal possible to get the home back to comfortable!

However, a little research ahead of time may make your furnace buying experience easier when it comes time to replace that old heating system! In our numerous years serving the winter comfort needs of the St. Louis metro area, we have pinpointed the best gas furnaces to install in the homes of our friends, families, and neighbors.

What Makes a Good Gas Furnace in St. Louis?

There is a lot to consider when it comes to matching a furnace with the unique heating needs of your St. Louis home. One of the most common misconceptions is that the bigger the furnace, the better. In reality, a furnace that is too large will actually provide too much heat too quickly, and will short-cycle on and off, wasting fuel with each turn. The things to look for in the perfect furnace in St. Louis for your home are:

  • Proper furnace sizing
  • Efficiency (AFUE rating)
  • Additional features (single stage, two stage, modulating)

Efficiency ratings for furnaces are measured by Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). This rating shows how much of the gas used in your furnace is converted into actual heat. A furnace with an 80% AFUE rating wastes 20% of the gas used, versus a 98% AFUE rated furnace, which only wastes 2%.

When it comes to the “stages” of a furnace, a single stage gas furnace has two modes: on or off. When a single stage furnace is on, it will operate at 100%  until the desired thermostat temperature is reached. A two stage furnace can operate at 100%, or at a lower stage of 50%. This allows for more efficient heating on days that may not be as cold. A modulating gas furnace takes it a step further, and can vary its operating capacity in increments of 1%. This allows your furnace to automatically optimize its efficiency to meet your heating needs without wasting any excess fuel.
