How Much Money Can a New Furnace Save You?
Our AFUE energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit's AFUE value and compare it to a newer, more efficient system. You can even customize it to better match your home's system for a more accurate calculation.
Don’t get left in the cold! Is your furnace acting up, blowing cold air, or making too much noise? Our experienced team of professionals is here to keep your home warm and cozy. We repair all makes and models, and we will never try to sell you a service that you don’t need. Our technicians are honest and hard working, and we’re always transparent and fair about the work we do.
Sometimes a repair is not sufficient to fix your furnace. Sometimes a new furnace is the most cost-effective and energy-efficient way to go. We will always be honest with you about a possible furnace replacement. We value our time and your money––we don’t want to perform repairs or service on an appliance that is in need of replacement.
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 Washington, PA 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 Shearer Heating, A/C & Refrigeration, and we can set up an appointment to calculate the furnace size you might need.
Gas Furnace Maintenance in Burgettstown, PA 15078
Gas Furnace Maintenance in Washington, PA 15301
“I find Shearer to be an excellent company to use for everything related to our gas furnace. The appointment we make every year for maintenance on our furnace is always performed by an excellent technician…this year's was Jared G. He arrived on time, checked all parts of the furnace, cleaned all drains and filters, and reported on everything to us before leaving. We recommend Shearer for their service and for the products they carry.”
Good Value and Protection for our Furnace
“We have been dealing with Shearer Heating and Cooling for many, many years. In fact, we are part of their Gold Star program where we have them scheduled to automatically come out in the spring and in the fall to do maintenance on our furnace and they check and make sure that things are in good working order for the upcoming season. We feel that this is a good value and protection for our furnace. We have had many furnace HVAC technicians come out through the years, but feel that we found an exceptional person when we recently had Dustin do some work on our furnace. Not only was he schooled in the technical skills needed to make the repair, but he was a very friendly & personable guy. From our conversation with him, we could tell that he possessed good values and a fine work ethic… things that are representative of the kind of business that Shearer’s has always had a reputation for running.”
