What You Need To Know About Heating System

CFM is short for cubic feet per minute (cu ft/min). It is a measurement of the velocity at which air flows into or out of a space. The CFM measurement often is used in reference to a computer's cooling system, and more typically in reference to an air-cooling system that is supporting overclocking
AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency)AFUE measures a gas furnace's efficiency, 20% of the energy produced by the natural gas furnace with 80% AFUE, is expelled as exhaust. Lennox High-efficiency furnaces offer 96% to 98% AFUE.
The British thermal unit (Btu or BTU) is a non-SI, traditional unit of heat; it is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.
A furnace gas valve is a component of your furnace’s fuel system. There are one stage and two-stage gas valves. There are great advantages with furnaces with two-stage gas valves. Typically, a two-stage furnace runs on the lower setting. This setting offers the following advantages: More Consistent Temperature Lower fan speed means less noise Better indoor air quality by longer run times An increasing lifetime of components by less start and stops Saving energy by not running the furnace on high unnecessarily

How do we size a furnace?

Time to buy a new furnace, and you’re wondering what capacity unit you’ll need for your home. You only need to know two things before buying a furnace; your home size and the climate zone you are in. We advise customers that your furnace should provide a minimum of 25-30 BTU of heat per square foot; geographic location may change a little calculation. For instance, a medium-sized home of two-thousand square feet would require approximately 60,000 BTU capacities to heat efficiently.

How much does a furnace cost?

A new furnace costs depending on the size of your home, the efficiency of your new furnace, type, brand & the model of a furnace you choose. Canadian homeowners can expect to pay between $3000 and $5000 including furnace installation.

How long does it take Furnace replacement?

The amount of time it takes to replace a furnace depends on many different factors, including the skill of the technicians, the size of your home and the type of furnace you are planning to replace, but it usually takes between 4 to 10 hours. Please reach out to learn more about the variables that will increase furnace installation time such as home layout, etc.

About Furnace efficiency

Given that heating equipment is the largest energy user in your home, accounting for over 45% of your energy spend, making a smart decision about your new hvac furnace goes beyond just best initial price. Consideration must be given to quality, serviceability, repair and maintenance. It’s always important to go with a name and reputation you can trust. Aside from the initial furnace installation what other things should you consider? If you are concerned about the costs and efficiency of your Gas Furnace you’ve probably heard the term AFUE before. But do you understand what it means? The AFUE of your furnace plays a huge role in the money you spend to heat your home each winter. AFUE standards for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. Every furnace or boiler has an AFUE rating representing its energy efficiency. The AFUE rating shows what percentage of the fuel consumed by your heating system is converted into useable heat for your home. The higher the number, the more efficient the use of fuel. Air source heat pumps use HSPF (Heating Season Performance Factor) to represent their energy efficiency. Also, here, a higher number equates to higher efficiency

2Furnace Installation
There are many do-it-yourself projects But, FURNACE INSTALLATION … should not be one of them. Furnace installation is a complicated endeavor, and is not something that should be attempted as a do-it-yourself project. It might be tempting to save on the installation fee, but furnaces contain several complicated components including electrical, ducting, plumbing, and gas, that require the installation expertise and specialized tools of a qualified HVAC professional. However, if you really want to read up and find out how it works, see below.
3Select your Heating
Once you have chosen your furnace, you’ll need to select a suitable location for it. Selecting the proper space depends on the type of furnace and plans for the remainder of the space. All furnaces have specifications for installation included with the unit. Therefore, each unit outlines the requirements for clearance and ventilation. Prior to starting the furnace installation process, clean the area of any dust or debris. For furnace installation in the basement, place the unit on blocks at least 4 inches above ground, which protects against flooding. If your furnace did not come with rubber isolation pads, purchase some pads, which helps reduce noise when the furnace is running. Unpackage your new furnace, removing all loose parts and instructions.
4Furnace Installation Proccess
1- where your duct and drain will run. The return duct can be on the side or bottom of the unit, and requires a hole be cut into the unit. Most come pre-marked with the appropriate size opening needed. Next, decide which side the condensate drain will run. Place your furnace into position, nearly level with a slight slope towards the condense drain exit. 2- ducting system. Upon correctly and adequately positioning the furnace unit, connect it to your home’s ducting system. Ensure you’ve sealed any connection with a metal foil tape or a duct sealant — do NOT use duct tape for this step as it will not last. 3- vent pipes. Next, install intake and exhaust pipes — 4- gas supply. Reconnect gas piping back 5- Connect electrical supply. There are generally two connections on a furnace, a low and line voltage. Be especially mindful of the polarity during this step. Before starting your new furnace for the first time, verify your wiring with the instruction manual. 6- Connect condensate drain. Ty via a hose to a drain hole in your basement’s floor. 7-Check your work. The final step in furnace installation requires turning the unit on and running through a heating cycle to ensure temperature outputs are where they should be according to the manufacturer. Give yourself about an hour’s worth of runtime to check this. You should also double check for any gas leaks, and to ensure the condensate drain is draining properly. Furnace installation remains a complicated undertaking with many complex steps, which requires qualified HVAC professionals in Ontario. The steps listed above simply provide homeowners with an idea of challenges with furnace installation.
