Understanding Today's High Efficiency Furnaces
The talk about new furnaces these days is how energy efficient they are. Over 50% of the energy used in an average home is used for heating and cooling; and with the rising cost of energy, saving energy with a high efficiency furnace is saving you money each and every month in your utility bills.
Furnace efficiency is given an AFUE rating which stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency and it is how much heat a furnace produces versus the total energy consumed by the furnace during a year.
New Bryant high efficiency furnaces with an 98.3 AFUE rating means, every dollar you spend heating your home, 98.3 cents of the dollar is turned into usable heat. The higher the rating, the more efficient the furnace is and the more you save on your energy bills. Older gas furnaces that utilize pilot lights have estimated AFUE ratings of 55 percent to 65 percent compared to a high efficiency Bryant 98.3 AFUE furnace, it becomes apparent how much you could be overpaying on your seasonal heating energy costs..
High Efficiency Gas Furnaces
At Dick Hill and Son Heating and Air we offer furnace systems from 80 AFUE to 98.3 AFUE to help fit your budget and comfort and to lower your monthly heating bills. View Our products here
When working with customers to provide an estimate to replace or install new heating and cooling equipment, we offer customized recommendations that include good (less up front cost and moderately efficient - 80-90 AFUE), better (slightly higher upfront cost but more efficient to operate - 90-95 AFUE) and best (larger upfront investment with significant utility cost savings - over 98 AFUE). The customer can then select which option best meets their budget.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal systems are "the most environmentally clean, energy-efficient, and cost effective space conditioning systems available today." That's because a geothermal system taps into the earth to capture free, renewable energy. The earth absorbs about 47% of the sun's energy that reaches it, storing that energy in the ground. A geothermal system extracts that free energy for heating during winter. For cooling, the system removes heat from the home and dumps it into the cooler earth. This transfer of heat energy is done through a series of lines buried in the ground, or sunk in a pond, or by using well water. Because a geothermal system simply moves heat instead of burning a fossil fuel to generate it, it's more energy-efficient. For more information visit our Geothemal page
Dick Hill and Son Ductwork Services
Typical duct systems can lose as much as 25 to 40% of the cooling or heating energy put out by the HVAC system. Leaks, one way in which conditioned air is lost in the duct system, make the furnace or central air system work much harder, thus raising your utility bill. Duct leakage can decrease your comfort, and cause health and safety issues.
Dick Hill and Son offers a large selection of ductwork services such as complete duct system replacements, repairing duct holes and sealing leaky ducts and duct joints. All new ductwork is made in our own sheet metal fabrication facility reducing costs and increasing quality.
