Heating Your Home with a Knik Limited Gas Furnace
Heating and cooling are typically a home’s greatest source of energy consumption, resulting in high billing costs. These costs tend to increase during the cooler months as furnaces can consume as much energy as cooling, water heating, lighting, and appliances combined. The good news is there are ways to both measure and enhance the efficiency of gas furnaces.
A home energy audit may reveal that the current system is running at a low annual fuel utilization efficiency, or AFUE. If it is determined that the AFUE is below 80%, it may make financial sense to upgrade to a high-efficiency gas furnace that can perform at up to 98% efficiency. Anything below this level means over 20 cents of every $1.00 is being wasted in the heating process.
Types of Gas Furnaces
Not all high-efficiency gas furnaces are made equal and some are better than others based on the needs of the individual and of the structure type.
Which one of these highly-efficient models is the correct choice will depend on the energy savings payback versus the cost of installation. The systems vary as well, with some being larger than others, some requiring different types of piping required for ventilation, and which method of disposal to use for excess flue gas condensate.
With so many things to consider, let the pros at Knik Heating help you choose the correct system for your home.
