To give you an idea of what to look for, remember that your furnace's efficiency rating, or AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency), tells you how efficiently your furnace uses fuel (gas or oil). In general, the higher your efficiency %, the less fuel your furnace will use to heat your home. Heat pumps have heating efficiency ratings indicated as an HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor). In general, the higher your HSPF rating, the less electricity your unit will use to heat your home.
Usually, the higher your efficiency, the higher the initial investment expense of your heating product. But you'll see the higher cost of your high-efficiency heating unit paid back in a few short years in the form of your lower utility bills.

Gas furnaces provide warm, consistent heat for your Ohio home or business by creating and circulating warm air through the duct work of your house and transferred to your house or business.
The heat to create the warm air is created by burning natural gas. The hot gases and heat that is created during the combustion process is transferred through a heat exchanger which is basically just a series of curved metal tubes which passes through the air path of the unit. As the heat passes through the pipes is transferred through the metal and into the air passing over it heating it in the process. The left over gasses are then passed out of the system through a metal or plastic vent pipe and into the outside atmosphere.
An oil fired warm air furnace uses no.2 fuel oil burned in a sealed chamber to heat an exchanger. Then with the help of a blower or fan, forces air across the exchanger, into ductwork to warm the structure.
The basic components of an oil furnace are: the burner, heat exchanger, fire box, blower, and cabinet, sometimes known as the jacket.
Accessories that can be installed inside or outside of the oil furnace include: a fan center, an air filter, electronic air cleaner, or high performance media filter, humidifier, and air conditioning evaporator coil . With central air, sometimes a condensate pump will be used to remove the water discharged in the dehumidification action of the air conditioning.
