Wholesale Furnaces Buying Guide

The Factory Furnace Outlet sells gas furnaces and electric furnaces in bundles and package units with other products. 

Gas furnaces use gas to heat your home. In order to find the perfect furnace for your space, you will first need to calculate the square footage of your home in order to estimate how many BTUs the furnace will need to possess, whether you want standard or high efficiency, and what orientation the furnace will need to be. 

Here is how to find the proper tonnage for your gas furnace:

Warmest climates: 30-35 BTUs per square foot

Warm climates: 35-40 BTUs per square foot

Mild climates: 40-45 BTUs per square foot

Cold climates: 45-50 BTUs per square foot

Coldest climates: 50-60 BTUs per square foot

You’ll need to decide which orientation you’d like to choose for your gas furnace. We offer downflow horizontal or upflow horizontal models. Upflow furnaces are often installed in the basement or in the closet, where the ductwork is located above the level of installation. Contrarily, downflow systems are installed in crawl spaces or in areas where the ductwork is below the level of installation.

You also have the option to choose between a “standard efficiency” gas furnace system or a “high efficiency” gas furnace system. On our site, “standard efficiency” stands for gas furnace systems that are 80% efficient and “high efficiency” gas furnace systems are those that are 92% efficiency or higher.

Our version of the electric furnace includes modular blowers that contain heat kits to heat your space. To ensure that you are purchasing a modular blower with enough BTUs to heat your space, be sure to follow this useful guide (these climate guides are referencing North American temperatures):

Hot climates: 30-35 BTUs per square foot

Warm climates: 35-40 BTUs per square foot

Moderate and cold climates: 45 or more BTUs per square foot

Additionally, you’ll need to acquire an accompanying heat kit that can adequately heat your home. Here is a useful guide for the purchasing of your heat kit:

Very warm climates:

1.5-3-Ton Heat Pump: 5 kW Heat Kit

3.5-5-Ton Heat Pump: 10 kW Heat Kit

Mild climates:

1.5-2-Ton Heat Pump: 5 kW Heat Kit

2.5-5-Ton Heat Pump: 10 kW Heat Kit

Colder climates:

1.5-2.5-Ton Heat Pump: 10 kW Heat Kit

2.5-3.5-Ton Heat Pump: 15 kW Heat Kit

4-5-Ton Heat Pump: 20 kW Heat Kit

Very cold climates:

1.5-2-Ton Heat Pump: 10 kW Heat Kit

2.5-3-Ton Heat Pump: 15 kW Heat Kit

3-5-Ton Heat Pump: 20 kW Heat Kit

Our modular blowers are all multi-position, meaning that they can be installed in any configuration in your space.
