Tips for buying a furnace

The most important factor in selecting a furnace is the contractor you buy it from. A conscientious contractor will specify a furnace that is properly sized for the application, and meets the comfort, efficiency, and budget needs of the customer. A quality installation is then needed to provide quiet operation and balanced heat distribution. Equipment oversizing is the most common cause of noisy, imbalanced, drafty, and inefficient performance.

Efficiency of gas furnaces is measured by the Department of Energy’s Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) standard. Older style standing pilot atmospherically vented furnaces achieve an AFUE rating of 50% to 65%. Electronic ignitions improve the rating by about 5%. Modern draft induced furnaces achieve an efficiency rating of 80% AFUE, and condensing gas furnaces achieve an “Energy Star” efficiency of 90% to 97% AFUE. High efficiency furnaces can be vertically or side wall vented with PVC pipe, and require a condensate drain.

Most manufacturer’s offer two stage furnaces at a very small premium. Low stage operates the furnace at two-thirds capacity for the first 10 to 15 minutes of operation. If heat demand is not satisfied in that time, the furnace will step to its full capacity until the space is heated. Staging provides quieter operation, more comfortable heating, higher efficiency, and less cycling of the furnace.

Modulating furnaces provide a range of heating from 40% to 100% of capacity. They provide the ultimate in comfort by equalizing the heat loss of the home with the output of the furnace. They are also ideal for zone controlled installations.

Typical modern furnaces are equipped with direct drive AC blower motors. Premium furnaces now offer digitally controlled direct current (DC) ECM blower motors that operate at a fraction of the energy costs of standard AC blower motors. In addition to efficiency, these blowers offer quieter operation and more precise air volume control. These blowers can also be set for very low constant air circulation volume. This provides extremely quiet operation for air cleaning and stratification reduction.

We will gladly help you select the combination of features that fit the needs of you and your residence or business.

Nate certified

Congratulations to our employees Nick Reno and Joe Bloomer for successfully completing their NATE certification on 12/20/2009.  They are the latest addition to our growing list of employees that have taken this rigorous training and testing program.

What is NATE?

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence, and it’s the only nationwide certification program accepted by the entire HVACR industry — contractors, manufacturers, and the Air Conditioning Contractors of America. NATE is a voluntary certification program designed to ensure that qualifying technicians have a core set of competencies and can be trusted by the consumers who hire them. NATE is the culmination of several years worth of work by ACCA and other industry organizations to establish one single, nationwide certification.

Why is NATE certification by our employees important to you?

The NATE certification is rigorous and voluntary. There are other third-party certification programs out there, but they have suspiciously high “pass” rates. NATE has the lowest pass rate and is the only nationwide certification program that is endorsed by the HVACR industry across all levels. Technicians, contractors, manufacturers, utilities, educators, wholesalers and leading industry trade associations support NATE. And industry organizations such as ACCA have helped develop the tests to ensure they maintain high professional standards.
