Check the AFUE and Energy Star Ratings There are two main ratings that you need to keep in mind when installing a new furnace. The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating indicates the efficiency of the furnace. The closer this number is to 100 percent, the more efficient the furnace's fuel use and the less it costs to run. Energy Star is a rating that is given to furnace models that have a high AFUE rating as well as high-efficiency blower motors and other components.

Things should be relatively straight forward when it comes to supplying forced air heat to a home. The furnace generates hot air that gets pushed through the vents, and it reaches each room of your home as intended. However, commercial spaces can be harder to heat. The layouts of the space do not always make the most sense, and you can run into unique problems you won't have at your home.

In the very frozen north at this time of the year, the last thing you want is to be without heat. Yet, it is almost a given that most people will have to replace their furnaces in the middle of winter, and often right after a major blizzard or snowstorm. If you are faced with having to replace a furnace entirely, and right after a blizzard, that is going to complicate things in a lot of ways.
