Types of Furnaces
Furnaces can use a number of fuel types in order to create the hot air which is sent throughout a building. One of the most popular furnace types is a natural gas furnace, which provides a high degree of energy–efficiency, while working very quietly. Natural gas furnaces are fairly affordable to purchase and install.
Electric furnaces heat by using an electric arc as a fuel source. They also run quietly, tend to require less maintenance than gas furnaces do, and generally last a few years longer as well. The main drawback is that they are more expensive to purchase and to install, and they can cost more to operate in areas where electricity rates are more expensive than natural gas rates.
The last main fuel type is oil furnaces. These are less expensive to install, and the fuel costs less. However, they are considerably less efficient than gas or electricity.
At Cool It we can help you compare each furnace type. We will compare the initial purchase prices with month–over–month utility costs, as well as how long each heating system is intended to last, and that way you can identify which will work for your interior space.
Choosing the Right Furnace Size
The size of furnace which is needed for any interior space is directly related to how big the space is that is being heated. A furnace that is too large can make spaces uncomfortably hot before shutting off, and then remain inactive for too long, causing large fulgurations in interior temperature. A furnace that is too small will run almost constantly, trying to get the temperature up to comfortable levels. When they turn on and off at improper intervals, this short cycling can wear out the parts of a furnace more quickly than intended, and the interior space will never feel comfortable. Thus finding the right size furnace for any interior space is vital to an efficiently working heating unit.
Energy–Efficiency Ratings for Furnaces
In addition to analyzing the type and size of each furnace, a key factor to look at is the energy–efficiency rating or AFUE. The AFUE system measures how much energy that is consumed by a furnace is being converted into usable heat. The higher this percentage is, the more efficient the furnace will run. With higher the AFUE ratings comes the drawback of higher upfront costs of a heating system, but also greater long–term savings through smaller monthly energy bills.
