Types of Gas Heating Systems We Service
Christian provides gas heating system service for three core technologies. These are forced-air furnaces, steam boilers and hot water boilers. Forced-air furnaces are the most prevalent heating system in our service area and throughout the country. Furnaces have evolved over the years, and modern units are among the most efficient heating options on the market. Boilers are a type of hydronic heating system in which heated fluid is distributed throughout a home via radiant flooring, radiators, baseboard convectors or so forth. Both types of boilers heat the fluid, but hot water boilers do not heat the water to the point of condensation whereas steam boilers do condense the liquid to water vapor.
Single-stage heating systems are still the most prevalent in America and have been in use as far back as the 1930s. These units have one mode of operation and can be either in an on or off state. When the temperature of a home drops below the set target, the furnace turns on and operates at full capacity.
Dual-stage furnaces have two modes of operation: low and high. These units will typically run at the low setting—about 60% of capacity—in order in order to minimize energy usage while heating the home. But when colder winter temperatures arrive, the system can run at full capacity to heat the home.
Variable Speed Furnaces
Variable speed furnaces—also known as variable capacity and modulating furnaces—are the most advanced. These units can adjust the speed of the blower based on the ambient temperature and the desired indoor temperature. In other words, these units use as much energy as is needed at any time.
Why Choose a Gas Heating System?
Natural gas is the least expensive fossil fuel available and typically costs 30 to 50 percent less than oil. Most natural gas is mined right here in the United States, so gas prices depend more on local conditions, like weather and supply and demand, than international relations. Natural gas furnaces are also inexpensive to maintain since they require few repairs and rarely break down. In addition, customers who convert from oil, propane, or electric baseboard heat to natural gas often have access to energy savings rebates from PECO.
Take Advantage of Increased Fuel Efficiency
The AFUE, or annual fuel utilization efficiency, is a measure of how efficiently a heating system converts fuel into heating energy. Our natural gas furnaces have an AFUE rating of up to 96.6 percent—a near-perfect efficiency rating. Reduced fuel use means fewer waste products are emitted into the atmosphere. So, it’s not just easier on your wallet; it’s great for Mother Nature, too. We also stand by our gas heating system installations by offering a 12-year parts and labor warranty for certain new systems.
