Before we earn your trust for a heating replacement service, it’s important to us that you understand what makes one unit better than another. As part of our HVAC assistance, we offer customer education to help you understand the terminology that will help you choose the most efficient, high-performing brand and model.
Let’s start with two terms used to measure efficiency in furnaces and other heating systems, AFUE and SEER. Annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) measures how efficiently a furnace, heat pump, or other unit uses fuel to produce heat. The seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) compares how well your heater works when you need it the most.
You also have to choose the right type of system based on your goals. For example, you can choose a furnace that runs on oil, gas, or electricity. If you want a system that provides both heating and cooling, a heat pump might be the right system for you. Whereas furnaces typically last longer and achieve more even heating, heat pumps have their advantages too. A heat pump uses air from outside your home or deep in the ground to pump hot or cold air throughout the building. However, if temperatures fall too rapidly, a heat pump cannot warm your home as efficiently as a furnace can.
Furnaces also have their pros and cons. For example, furnaces tend to dry out the air inside your home unless you also install a humidifier/dehumidifier to regulate your indoor air quality. Heat pumps introduce humidity into the air circulating throughout your home, helping to prevent dry skin and respiratory issues aggravated by dry air.
Here are some of the advantages of heating replacement services performed by our experienced HVAC technicians:
Better heating performance
No more frequent repair charges
Smart technology that helps you manage your home’s climate
Energy-efficient heating customized for your family
BTUs: How HVAC Energy Is Measured
The British Thermal Unit (BTU) is widely used to determine the amount of energy that HVAC systems can produce in a given amount of time. BTUs can be converted into AFUE to measure how effectively a furnace transforms the gas into heat energy.
The airflow volume, measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), is calculated using the operational fan speed and the external static pressure. A device that can read the thermal changes inside the duct system provides critical information to calculate the BTUs needed in your furnace replacement.
