New Furnace Replacement & Installation in the Boulder / Denver Metro Area
Most homes and most customers are not exactly alike, so it’s only logical to us that we make furnace replacement recommendations tailored to you and your home. While this may seem like a common sense approach, it is indeed unique. If the tech from your current heating company comes to the door and asks, ‘Where’s the furnace,’ and then disappears until they’re done and ready to leave, please give us a call to see how Save Home Heat Company operates!
Please review these tips as you consider a new or replacement furnace for your home:
Furnaces with gas efficiency ratings of up to 99% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) are now available, providing the quietest and most comfortable heating we have ever offered. Some models also have much more efficient fan motors, with significantly lower electrical consumption.
Save Home Heat’s complete furnace line includes a broad range of quality high efficiency and moderate efficiency systems to suit any need. We understand that the most efficient furnace doesn’t always make the most sense for all families. Our goal is to help you decide on the best system to meet your unique goals, one which is the right fit for your home.
Many older furnaces that our technicians and estimators see on a daily basis are currently operating with efficiencies in the 70% to 80% AFUE range. We also see a number of early vintage 90+ rated systems that have ‘seen better days,’ and it’s due time to upgrade. Whether you are currently in the market for a new furnace, or gathering information for a future purchase, make sure that you have your current furnace inspected and serviced regularly to ensure your family’s safety.
Modern high-efficiency furnace often have sealed burning chambers and doors with gaskets to isolate operating noise inside the furnace. This was not the case with many of the earlier 90-plus models. Most modern systems also employ a two-pipe sealed combustion venting design, which additionally reduces furnace noise inside your home. Our most popular furnace models, two-stage and modulating furnaces, operate at reduced BTU and fan levels much of the time, further minimizing furnace noise in the mechanical area, as well as the sound of air moving through the duct system.
Lastly, many older furnaces were simply way oversized, with fans that were larger and therefore louder than necessary, pushing large volumes of air thru ducting that was designed for lower airflow. The unpleasant result of this practice was the loud ‘woosh’ sound often associated with older systems trying to deliver more air than the ducting could handle. Modern sizing practices at Save Home Heat Company has eliminated this issue.
Combine all these factors and you may end up with a significantly quieter furnace!

Furnace Effectiveness and Comfort
A properly sized and installed furnace can make a huge improvement in the comfort level in your home. And while it may seem counter-intuitive, a smaller system is often what your home needs to heat better.
An oversized furnace, providing more heat than is needed each time it turns on, produces very short, inefficient heating cycles–which leads to uncomfortable temperature swings between each call for heat. The more appropriate, longer heating cycles produced by a properly sized furnace allows warm air to distribute more evenly around your home, while allowing the equipment to run at its optimal operating efficiency.
Along with accurately sizing your replacement furnace, proper airflow is the other key. During the installation process, we typically modify the sheet metal surrounding the furnace–the output plenum and the return air duct–to improve air movement thru the furnace and as a result, enhance heat delivery through your home’s ducting system.
If your home doesn’t heat evenly or comfortably, we can help!
Variable Output Levels
For nearly a century, single stage furnaces, which operate at a fixed heat output level, were the norm in residences with forced air heating. Quality single-stage furnaces are still readily available, and they will still heat your home adequately–but the technology is quickly becoming outdated, replaced by equipment featuring two-stage or variable-output, modulating designs. These newer furnaces have been in use for years now, and many features are available in both moderate and high-efficiency models.
Variable-output and two-stage furnaces can significantly improve comfort by more evenly distributing the warm air in your home, at quieter, less intrusive levels. Customers who have forced air heating often complain that parts of their homes don’t heat well, or that they freeze in certain areas and boil in others or that temperature swings are too noticeable! The best replacement furnace solution to help address these concerns is a modulating furnace. By delivering air at a reduced output level for longer periods of time, adjusting in small increments to the needs of your home, variable output equipment can potentially eliminate, or significantly reduce these issues.
In addition, the longer, moderate heating cycles of two-stage and modulating furnaces allow your furnace filter and central humidifier more time to do a better job cleaning and humidifying your indoor air!
Variable-speed furnaces are those heaters that have the advanced variable-speed main blower technology. These types of fans are the quietest and mostly electrically efficient available, and are standard equipment on all ultra efficient variable-output furnaces. Variable-speed fans can also be found on select models of two-stage 90%-plus and 80% efficient furnaces. If you are looking for the quietest furnaces in either efficiency range, affording the greatest comfort levels and least intrusive operation, we recommend that you strongly consider one of the variable-speed models furnaces in our broad product line.
In this age of carbon footprint awareness, we do our best to offer you heating systems that allow you to lighten your environmental impact while still achieving superior comfort levels. Compared to furnaces that we replace on a regular basis, a new high-efficiency system will burn more cleanly, reducing emissions into the atmosphere. And by using less fuel in the process, our limited gas resource is conserved.
Save Home Heat Company also actively recycles everything that can be removed from the stream of trash that ends up in landfills, from your old furnace and sheet metal plenum, to the box the new furnace came in–to empty pop cans and scrap paper from our office, warehouse, and workshop!
