FurnaceCompare.com was established in 2002 to provide comprehensive, unbiased information about heating and cooling systems. While in the beginning, we focused solely on furnaces, we now cover more than 2,000 series (and more than 54,000 individual models) of air source heat pumps, boilers, central air conditioners, furnaces, geothermal heat pumps, pellet stoves, water heaters, outdoor wood furnaces and wood stoves.
We believe that our reputation in the long-term is more important than our profits in the short-term.
- Manufacturers cannot pay for inclusion or for preferred placement.
- Every review goes through both algorithmic filters and human editors to ensure that we eliminate duplicates and spam.
- We do not accept guest-written or pay-for-placement articles.
- When we find errors (and mistakes do occasionally slip through) we fix them. If you find an error, please let us know!

How FurnaceCompare.com got Started
I started FurnaceCompare.com in 2002 after I discovered that the 40-year old boiler in my basement was going to be remarkably expensive to replace. The first version of the site was pretty basic — a search feature based on some Energy Star data. However, in 2005 we began to invest in collecting and publishing very detailed information about different heating and cooling equipment — everything from specs to consumer reviews to prices.
I hope you find FurnaceCompare helpful. If you have suggestions for ways we could improve the site, please email us.
