How to Shop for a New Home Heater

As you’ve probably already heard, a new heating system can help you reduce your utility bills. But with so many options to choose from, finding the best system for your needs can be a monumental task. To help you have an easier time when buying a new heater, we’ve dug deep and listed the best heating units on the market today.

Trane XR HVAC Series

If you’re looking for a high-quality heating system that’s available at a budget-friendly price, then the Trane XR HVAC Series will suit you. The series consists of a range of affordable to mid-range heat pumps and furnaces. The furnaces have an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency of 80% and 95%, while the heat pumps have a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) of 8.2 to 10.0. The systems are backed by a 20-year warranty on their heat exchanger and a 10-year warranty on the other components.

Lennox Signature Series

Lennox manufactures exceptionally efficient heating and cooling equipment. If you want premium performance, you’ll love the Signature Series. Some of the lineup’s top features include variable-speed and two-stage heating, variable-speed fans, and compatibility with Wi-Fi and solar modules.

When it comes to efficiency ratings, the heat pumps have HSPF ratings of 9.7 and 10.2. The furnaces have AFUE ratings of 80%, 97.5%, and 98%. But that’s not all. These systems are backed by lifetime heat-exchanger warranties.

Goodman GSX/Z and GMS HVAC Series

If price is your priority, you’ll want to go for these Goodman products. Despite being the low-cost leaders, they offer decent efficiency. GSZ and GSX heat pumps are rated 9.0 and 9.5 HSPF while GMS furnaces have 80%, 92%, and 96% AFUE.

The heat exchangers of these Goodman systems are covered by lifetime warranties. What’s more, some models of furnaces qualify for complete replacement for a period of up to 10 years in case they fail.

With any of the brands above, you’ll get dependable performance and durability — but only if the system is installed correctly.
