Tons of Upgraded Furnaces to Choose From
If your furnace is more than 10 years old, it likely does not perform at the same level of energy efficiency stated by the unit’s efficiency rating. This is because time takes a tole on furnaces, with wear and tear as well as neglected maintenance chipping away at the gas furnace’s efficiency. Oil furnaces and electric furnaces are no different. Even ENERGY STAR qualified modulating furnaces or a zero emission heat pump will lose its high efficiency over time. The result is less reliable heat and higher utility costs when using your heating system and air conditioning unit.
When you reach this stage with your current furnace, replacement is your best bet to lower energy bills for the years to come. The Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing team will send an HVAC expert to meet with you and discuss options for new furnaces, heat pumps, and boilers. Furnaces are popular choices, with gas furnace, heating oil furnace, and electric furnace options available with a range of energy efficiency ratings and initial cost points. Whether you’re in search of the quietest furnace or high efficiency furnaces, our Comfort Consultants are the ones to trust to help you find the perfect furnace matched for your air conditioner.
Once you choose between our great furnaces and narrow your selection to one specific furnace model, trust our team of NATE-certified installers to place the furnace into service with the greatest care and technical knowledge. As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, our staff trains directly with the manufacturer to ensure we know the specific technical needs of each furnace we install. This specialized training helps us achieve furnace performance at the annual fuel utilization efficiency AFUE efficiency rating stated by the furnace.
Deciding Between Your Furnace Options
When you need to replace your old heating unit, there are many energy efficient furnaces on the market to choose from. Many homeowners in cold climates prefer a natural gas furnace over an oil furnace or electric furnace, as energy costs tend to be lower. However, oil furnaces and electric furnaces offer perfectly reliable warm air for many households. No matter what furnace type you choose or how the different furnaces work, Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing offers an expanded selection of furnaces so you have plenty of heating options to choose from.
As you shop for a furnace to install, it can be difficult to determine which factors are most important to your purchase decision. Energy efficiency, initial cost, advanced features like automated technology, and more are all aspects different homeowners hold as important when making this choice.
ENERGY STAR Qualified Furnaces with Greater Energy Efficiency
Furnaces range between 80% to about 98% AFUE efficiency rating, with AFUE being the acronym that stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency. The efficiency rating of a gas furnace or an electric or oil furnace shows how well the furnace is at converting fuel into usable heat. Even the most high efficiency furnace options produce some energy waste, though minimal compared to other furnaces.
The most energy efficient furnace option will be a natural gas furnace in most cases, though high efficiency oil furnaces and electric furnaces are available. All types of furnaces are available with ENERGY STAR certified status, which shows you that furnace model offers efficiency greater than what is provided through standard model furnaces. When choosing a high efficiency furnace, know that the initial cost is likely to be higher than if you chose a lower energy efficiency furnace. Despite higher furnace cost, the improved efficiency of these furnaces typically generates lower energy bills for users.
All types of furnaces, including an oil furnace, gas furnace, or electric unit offer varying heating capacities. Single stage heating was long held as the only option, but two stage heating and variable speed furnaces are now available for installation at home. The number of heating stages offered indicates the different operating capacities a furnace is able to run.
- Single stage furnace units provide single stage heating, which is only one operating capacity. Single stage heating means your furnace will always run at its maximum capacity, no matter how little heat the home requires. Because a single stage heating furnace always runs at full blast, it uses more energy and offers very little benefit toward home humidity control.
- Two stage heating such as with a two stage gas furnace offers two operating speeds – high and low. The two stage gas furnace will only run at high capacity when absolutely necessary, such as when it is extremely cold outside. Other times, two stage heating systems default to low capacity, running at about 40% of their high capacity. One benefit of lower operating capacity from a two stage gas furnace is quiet operation compared to a single stage gas furnace.
- A variable speed or modulating furnace is able to adjust operating capacity based on the need for heating indoors for various heating stages. The variable speed blower adjusts to deliver volumes of heat as needed, and the modulating fuel valve adjusts natural gas or heating oil output to the burners to reduce the amount of fuel burned to heat the home. These furnaces use a variable speed motor that is an electronically commutated motor (ECM). A variable speed furnace offers improved efficiency and typically a higher efficiency rating than other types of gas furnaces as well as often being ENERGY STAR qualified. They deliver precise temperature control and superior humidity control.
Standard gas furnaces along with oil furnaces and electric models have a single heat exchanger that transfers heat to the air. Combustion byproducts produced in gas furnaces and oil furnaces are held within the heat exchanger to release heat to air flowing across the component prior to venting out of the system by inducer motors.
In high efficiency gas furnaces, there is often a secondary heat exchanger to utilize more of the heat produced by the combustion process. Gases stay in the furnace longer, giving them time to condense so they must exit the system as a liquid instead of as a vapor. Because this type of gas furnace makes more efficient use of the heat produced, most of these furnaces are ENERGY STAR qualified and the furnace cost is higher than furnaces with a single heat exchanger.
More Furnace Features to Consider
Whether you’re shopping for a gas furnace, oil furnace, or electric furnace, there are some more features you may wish to consider for your next furnace:
- Low NOx gas furnace models that emit lower volumes of nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide
- Silicon carbide or hot surface ignition systems that replace older pilot light technology
- ENERGY STAR qualified models typically have a higher efficiency rating
- Match your new furnace with your air conditioning cooling unit for a higher overall system efficiency rating
