For homeowners that are not near a populated area or have an older home that had an oil furnace to begin with their is still the oil furnace HVAC system that many of the brands still offer. While many of the urbanites and suburbanites around the country are unfamiliar with these units, oil furnaces are a basic source of heat and hot water for many people. One of the key reasons that many people have moved from oil furnaces is that they are very complex HVAC systems. For this reason repairs and installation it is almost imperative to have a professional come over and take care of everything.

Size of oil furnace - pretty easy to understand, the larger the unit the more costly it will be.
AFUE rating - similar to above, the higher the AFUE the more expensive the unit will be.
