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 West Reading, 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 Vertex Mechanical, and we can set up an appointment to calculate the furnace size you might need.

The quality of work was amazing and they truly went up and beyond to make sure that everything was up to code and that I understood everything. I will not hesitate to ask for these two men in the future!”

“I cannot put this plainly enough. My wife and I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Vertex Mechanical Inc. They are extremely professional, honest, and reasonable. Like we do yearly, Vertex came out to do general maintenance on our system that my wife and I both knew was probably end of life. We had Tony this time for a service visit and to diagnose and fix an issue with our heater. He was extremely thorough, efficient, very knowledgeable, and patient. He took the time to thoroughly explain both the issue and the fix (replacement). Basically, we had no heat or AC in the house.
That same day, Scott Martin came out at the house assessing the needs. He then came back the following day with a plan. The important key here was that it was a very professionally detailed “a la carte” plan; there was no pressure, there was no up-sell. Scott spent the time explaining, went over all options, answered all my questions (silly or not), and let us choose. And that’s what we did.
Within days (over the weekend) Vertex got the equipment they needed and installed on the following Monday. ONE DAY replacement of a natural gas furnace and AC unit, plus outside condenser….the install technicians were just as amazing; thorough, worked steady, and got it done, even with all the new challenges they faced with a new system. And let me tell you folks: it’s a mess pulling that much old equipment out and putting new in. But you could never tell. They were proactive in making sure they caught as much as they could, and then thoroughly cleaned up everything before they left. I’m not easily impressed….but these 3 men impressed me with their respect, work ethic, and talents.
I latch on to companies I trust once I find them; I will never use anyone except Vertex moving forward. I cannot recommend them any more than that.”
