Why Choose a Gas Furnace over Other Heating Systems
Gas furnace installation is still one of the most popular choices among homeowners because these systems provide reliable whole–home heating with a warm–air feel, no matter how low the outside temperature drops. Modern gas furnaces have improved greatly in recent years. Many models have an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating of more than 90%— a vast improvement over those built decades ago, which often had an AFUE of about 50–60%. Think of AFUE as a percentage of efficiency. With a 90% AFUE, 90% of the gas you buy is converted to heat and 10% is wasted. With 60% AFUE, 60% is converted to heat, and so on. The higher the AFUE, the more efficient the furnace.
Although dependent upon the fluctuating costs of natural gas, gas furnaces can be less costly to operate than electric systems. More important, a gas furnace can only remain efficient if you choose a quality company for installation. Oversized furnaces may short cycle, which means that your furnace will turn itself off and on frequently. When your furnace is working properly, it automatically cycles on when it senses that the air is too cold. Undersized furnaces will cost more to run and may break down sooner. Our team of skilled installers will take care to install your properly sized new system with precision.
Gas Furnace Repair and Maintenance
Every heating system needs repairs at some point, but regular maintenance visits can delay, and even prevent, breakdowns. We recommend regular maintenance to make sure that your heating system lasts as long as possible with very little trouble. Technicians will inspect the system and let you know whether there are anticipated repair needs which may force your gas furnace to struggle in the future. Furthermore, they’ll make a few minor adjustments to the unit and make sure that it remains safe to operate.
You should call a technician as soon as you notice a problem, no matter how minor it may seem in the moment. Don’t wait until the system fails entirely; a heating system that is struggling can only worsen over time. Call a professional for gas furnace repair or maintenance service as soon as you notice that your gas furnace does not offer the same level of performance as it once did, or if you notice strange noises or even unusual smells from the ducts.
