Choosing the ideal heating/cooling system can be challenging. In the final analysis, you may find that issues such as comfort, aesthetics, air quality, or other environmental concerns matter as much, or more, than dollars spent. But invest the time needed to make a considered, informed choice. That is the best insurance to be sure that you meet your home heating, financial, and environmental goals. The major choices involve: • fuel type • furnace efficiency • correct sizing of the unit. Luckily our Home Comfort Advisors are here to help guide you through the process. Call us to arrange a Free Home Comfort Consultation.
After you select and install just the right furnace, be sure to check your duct work. You will lose money instead of save it if the hot air produced is lost or cooled before it reaches your living space. Ducts should be located inside heated space to minimize conductive heat loss. Avoid putting ducts in unheated crawl spaces and attics. After installation, make sure all joints are sealed with duct tape to prevent air leaks and insulate any ducts that are located outside heated air spaces. You might consider investing in a new setback thermostat to save heat and money as well. You can by a clock thermostat and set it for hourly levels, or buy a programmable thermostat that has more options and it more finely tuned. Or just set the thermostat back by hand each night or when you are away, as long as you remember to set it back up again when you return!
What is efficiency? In brief, an efficiency rating tells you how much of the total energy used is delivered to the home as heat. The higher the efficiency, the better the furnace functions. For example, a furnace that is 92% efficient delivers 92% of the fuel consumed to the house as heat. The rest, 8% or 8 cents on the dollar, goes up the chimney flue. Your heating bill, therefore, depends on the cost of the fuel and the efficiency of the furnace. Older furnaces tend to be around 50% efficient, so for every dollar spend, half is wasted... crazy for your bank balance, and also the environment!
