Maintaining your furnace is always the smart choice
No matter what kind of heating system you have in your house, you can save money and increase your comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment. But remember, an energy-efficient furnace alone will not have as great an impact on your energy bills as using the whole-house approach. By combining proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you can save about 30% on your energy bill while reducing environmental emissions (From Energy.gov).
At the heart of any residential heating system, your home’s furnace is the equipment that burns gas to produce heat for your home. By their very nature, then, furnaces are incredibly important and yet potentially dangerous if not cared for properly. Service Genius is ready to help you not only keep your home comfortable without unpleasant surprise breakdowns, but also to keep your system safe by inspecting all of the furnace components for cleaning or replacement before they pose a risk to your entire heating system or home.

Know your furnace
Furnaces carry several ratings that are important for you to know, as they affect the way the furnace will heat your home and impact your utility bills. Here’s a quick explanation that our team can discuss with you in-depth when you call to schedule a free quote!
- AFUE: The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency is the efficiency of the unit. A higher AFUE rating means more heat is carried into your home for each bit of gas burned. In general, a higher AFUE will mean more savings on your heating bill.
- Variable, dual, and single stage furnaces: These categories refer to the ability of the furnace to slow down and speed up the blower and the burners. Variable units are best able to keep your home at a constant temperature.
- Maximum temperature rise: This is the maximum amount air may be heated in the furnace and will be dependent on your installation. Exceeding the recommended temperature rise will decrease the life of your furnace and create hazardous conditions.
