Once the season turns cold and we dip into frosty temperatures here in the Houston area, we need the reliability of a warm home.
At ME Brown, our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team is here to help with exactly that. Our licensed professionals provide high-quality, climate-control solutions for you and will repair your current gas furnace or install a new system restoring your home’s comfort to where you want it.
What You Need to Know About Gas Furnaces
Most furnaces in Texas run on natural gas because it’s widely available and tends to be the most economical choice. A properly maintained gas furnace should operate for 15 to 20 years before you need to replace it.
As a smart Houston homeowner, you will want to know your furnace’s annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. An energy-efficient furnace will have an AFUE rating of 95 percent or higher, meaning it can convert 95 percent of the energy it consumes into heat.
The higher the AFUE rating, the more money you save on monthly utility bills. Energy-efficient furnaces also help the environment since they emit a lesser amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
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.
Gas Furnace Installation and Replacement
No matter how well you maintain your gas furnace, it can’t run forever. There will come a time when you will have to replace it.
When that time comes, you need to call ME Brown. Our job is to be sure you are comfortable at all times in your Texas home. We go to great lengths to ensure the furnace you purchase is a perfect fit for you.
We work with the highest-quality systems and products in the Houston area, so you can rely on us finding the appropriate match for you and your lifestyle. When you install a higher efficiency system, you can help improve your indoor air quality (IAQ) as well as save on energy costs.
When we install your system, our professional installers will treat your home with the utmost respect it deserves. We leave your home as clean as we found it when the job is complete.
Your new furnace will also undergo intense scrutiny from our ME Brown professionals, before we finish, to guarantee everything is installed correctly and you have the precise temperature and air control you expect from your purchase.

“2 new A/C and furnace systems were put in today and I was extremely happy with the professionalism. I thought it was going to take 2 days but they arrived at 8 am and we’re finished by 3 pm. They made sure to be careful with walls furniture and my hardwood floors. I was kind of dreading this but it was easy peasy! I would recommend M E Brown Services for new systems but also their maintenance twice a year!! I have been using them for over 20 years now and have never been unhappy!!”
“Excellent work on replacing old heating & cooling systems in our ’83 built home. Great customer service too!”
