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.

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 Washington 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 Ranger Heating & Cooling, and we can set up an appointment to calculate the furnace size you might need.

“I was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the Ranger team — beginning with Dan who provided options and information so that we could make an informed decision, to the installation teams led by Matt and Scott. Everyone was very respectful and explained each step of the process. Before they left, they made sure to leave everthing as they found it, including my challenging gate. I would highly recommend Ranger Heating & Cooling. ”

“After using Ranger to troubleshoot my gas furnace, they're the only ones I'll ever go to for my heating and cooling needs! Robbie was super knowledgeable and friendly. He diagnosed my furnace quickly, and showed me what was wrong. He then showed me simple ways i can troubleshoot, and repair common furnace problems myself in the future.
I was totally impressed.
Also, every other company I had called was booked out for a week. When I called Ranger and said my furnace was broke, they came out the very next day.
5 stars! Highly recommended!”

“I called Ranger Heating to see if I might get some helpful information in regards to a furnace recently installed by another heating company. There was a noise coming from the burners and it was a mystery as to why. Dan offered to come out and see if he could help figure out what was going on. He not only came out, spending an hour at my house without charge, but afterwards called me with more possible solutions from the owner of Ranger. I was so impressed with their willingness to help me try to resolve this situation even though they knew they wouldn't be selling me anything.I so appreciated their assistance, and the suggestions they gave were great!

“Ranger was awesome. Jeremy came out and gave us a very fair estimate. Dustin did the actual job (with a trainee) and was thorough and finished the job quickly and efficiently. My elderly father (who is a retired electrician – involved in heating and A/C – and can be cantankerous) was totally pleased with the job they did. We had carpeting installed a couple of days before the furnace was replaced and they were very careful to make sure it stayed in "new" condition. They took away the old furnace as well. I would highly recommend Ranger to anyone. Thanks for the great work!
