Furnace and Boiler Installations
When you need a new furnace or boiler, you can trust us to provide you with the vital information you need to make an informed decision. Our HVAC technicians are well-versed in installing all types and sizes of furnaces, including Trane furnaces that are between 80 and 90+ percent efficient, which can help you save money on your heating bills while providing you with the warmth you need during the cold winter months.
If your furnace or boiler is more than a few years old or is past its expected useful life, you may need an expert heating system replacement or upgrade. New furnaces and boilers are much more energy-efficient than past models. Some even have energy efficiency ratings of 96 and 97 percent, which means that 97 percent of the energy used by the furnace or boiler is converted into heat while only 3 percent is lost.
Old heating equipment is considered to be any furnace or boiler that is more than 15 years old. This is because the average life-expectancy for heating equipment is between 15 and 20 years. Not to mention, these old furnaces and boilers may only be between 56 and 70 percent energy-efficient, according to Energy.gov.
An average modern energy-efficient heating system tends to be 80 to 83 percent energy-efficient, which is a maximum energy savings of 27 percent. These systems tend to be more affordable than their high-efficiency counterparts, and they can still save you money on your heating bills.
New high-efficiency furnaces and boilers are designed with maximum energy efficiency in mind. These systems tend to have sealed combustion chambers and can reach 98 percent energy efficiency, depending on the model. These units tend to be more expensive, but they can use as much as 46 percent less energy than their low-efficiency counterparts.
