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 Portland, OR 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 Ben's Heating & Air Conditioning, and we can set up an appointment to calculate the furnace size you might need.

“We have used Ben's services twice now – once to service our air conditioning unit and recently to service our gas furnace. Each time they were nice and prompt on the phone, arrived during the scheduled time (see note below) and did the necessary maintenance needed, nothing more. Never once did they try to upsell us or say we needed something we didn't. The service technicians are top notch! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
The only negative thing I can mention (and it's not really that bad) is that they initially tell you over the phone a 4 hr window, but then they follow that up with an email which states a specific one hour window. So I thought our service would be during the one hr window in the email, but they actually came much earlier than that. So just a side note that it would be great if they could get their emails to more accurately reflect the estimated time of arrival.”

“Chris and Bruce were friendly and professional from start to finish. They talked me through their plan to remove the old furnace with the new one. They were very careful navigating the furnace units in and our of my house. Chris and Bruce also noticed that my condensate piping was at an odd angle, so they went into the crawl space to inspect and fix the issue with that piping, which was very much appreciated. They then walked me through the installation and features of the new furnace. They cleaned up the work area and off to the next future satisfied customer. I would highly recommend Ben's Heating & Air Conditioning.”

“Justin arrived on time with a big smile on his face so I knew we had a winner right from the start! He got right in and did an annual check on our gas furnace with such skill and efficiency that he was done and handing me the paper to sign before I could hardly turn around! I double checked with him by asking if he had checked everything and he assured me he had and all was well and running properly! I am used to service people spending more time sorting tools and poking around to accomplish the same thing Justin did in a few minutes. This guy is a gem! Don't let him get away from you because he is saving you time and money with his efficient and quick service. Way to go, Justin!”

“Mike L and Zach F installed a new gas furnace in our basement a couple of weeks ago. They did a phenomenal job and we couldn't be happier! It was in the middle of a major house remodel and we are still living in the house so there were a lot of moving pieces for them to work around. I was so impressed with their manner and work ethic. They were both very polite and willing to work with me on the exact location of the unit. There were few days where Mike was here by himself and in order to make sure I was happy with the placement, he moved the unit 3 times for me, duct work and all. I know those were long days for him but he never complained. And both he and Zach worked to make sure the location of the new vents would work for us in the new remodeled space. The unit works beautifully! Lastly… we had an incident at the end of a long work day where someone had dumped buckets of wood stain in our dumpster outside and it had spilled all over the ground. Mike and Zach were getting ready to leave for the day when we noticed it but immediately grabbed supplies out of their van and started cleaning it up. I cannot thank them enough for that kindness. I would definitely recommend Ben's Heating and Air Conditioning and Mike L and Zach F as installers anytime. Thank you for a great experience!”

“Customer service was exceptional, courteous and professional. Jennifer R. was very good at setting up a field service check by a technician to trouble shoot an issue with our 17 year old Trane gas furnace. The response time was timely and ahead of the original estimated time of arrival. We received prompt text and email notifications. The technician Aaron B. was knowledgeable and his trouble shooting of our furnace issue was thorough and pinpointed the problem. There was no pressure to immediately remedy the situation as the current weather conditions were mild enough to allow us to make some important decisions on whether to just replace the failing furnace part or upgrade to a newer more efficient furnace model based on the age of the unit we now have which is nearing the end of its performance life.”
