A Wide Selection of Furnace Upgrade Options
Older furnaces rarely offer the level of energy efficient performance homeowners expect, whether they be gas furnaces, gas packaged units, oil furnaces, or electric furnaces. As time goes on, energy efficiency of furnaces declines – it doesn’t matter if they’re ENERGY STAR qualified or have a high AFUE efficiency rating starting out. Wear and tear build and affect the furnace, especially without proper furnace maintenance. This causes performance energy efficiency to drop despite the stated efficiency ratings from when the HVAC system was new. Your energy bills will also gradually increase over the years.
When it comes to this point, it’s best to replace old furnaces with furnaces that are new to keep utility costs low. Speak with an HVAC expert at Williams Comfort Air to learn about the furnace options available to you. Our Comfort Consultants know the ins and outs of the different natural gas furnace models and oil furnaces we offer, and can help you decide between purchasing a furnace or a zero emission heat pump or boiler. No matter your choice in heating system, whether it be heat pumps, boilers, gas furnaces, oil furnaces, or electric furnaces, we will explain how furnaces work and help you find the right model to suit your needs and budget.
After you choose a new gas furnace, oil furnace, or electric furnace, our team of NATE-certified furnace installation technicians will accurately install the furnace in your home. We are a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer and our team has received factory training for every furnace we carry to ensure system performance is in line with the annual fuel utilization efficiency assigned to the unit.
Choosing a New Furnace for Your Home in Indianapolis
Natural gas is commonly used for heating in homes throughout the Indianapolis area, though some still prefer to use an oil furnace or electric furnace. A natural gas furnace is the most popular choice for central heating and air conditioning systems as the utility costs are low. Our selection of gas furnaces, oil furnaces, and electric furnaces include a range of energy efficient features for better comfort and energy savings each year.
Shopping for furnaces can be confusing if you don’t know what to look for. Below, find the important criteria to consider as you compare furnace options:
An electric furnace, oil furnace, or gas furnace’s efficiency is expressed using the acronym AFUE, which stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency. A heat pump uses HSPF for its efficiency rating, which stands for heating seasonal performance factor. The AFUE efficiency rating starts at 80 percent and climbs to just over 98 percent for the best furnaces with high efficiency. The furnace’s efficiency rating represents how efficient the furnace is at converting fuel into usable heat for the home.
A gas furnace or oil furnace are typically more energy efficient furnaces compared to an electric furnace, however there are ENERGY STAR qualified models of all types of furnaces. ENERGY STAR certified furnaces in Indiana must offer a 95 percent or greater efficiency rating. The initial cost of a high efficiency furnace is generally higher than a model with a lower efficiency rating, but its long-term savings can be far greater.
The efficiency rating of a performance is impacted by the heating stages it offers. While single stage heating was once the only option, furnaces today offer two stage heating and variable speed heating. Heating stages describe the operating speed of the blower that distributes warm air throughout the home.
- Single stage heating models use the air conditioner blower with a single operating speed, so the furnace runs at one capacity at all times. These furnaces constantly work a full capacity so they have the lowest efficiency ratings compared to other furnace types and doesn’t provide much humidity control.
- A two stage gas furnace, oil furnace, or electric model has the ability to heat the home at two different speeds. At full capacity, the blower and gas valve work at maximum speed, using maximum energy in the form of natural gas, oil, or electricity. A second lower capacity, around 40 percent, is also available to save energy. Most of the time, a two stage gas furnace or oil furnace will run at this lower speed. In cold climates when extra help is needed to heat the home, the furnace will run at full speed. With lower speeds, these furnaces offer quiet operation.
- Modulating furnaces are also called variable speed furnaces, and they can run their electronically commutated motors (ECMs) at different speeds based on the heating needs of the home. A modulating valve also adjusts the flow rate of gas or oil to the burner lit by a pilot light or electronic ignition system and the variable speed of fuel released helps limit the amount of energy consumed. The variable speed blower operates at a variable speed depending on how much heat is needed, delivering precision control over temperatures in the home. This variable speed blower operation helps deliver better humidity control indoors. Variable speed furnaces are the quietest furnaces thanks to their ability to run at reduced speeds. The furnace cost of these units is typically higher than other models.
A gas furnace, oil furnace, and electric furnace use a heat exchanger to transfer heat to the air. Furnaces that are electric have a hot element that increases air temperature, while the heat exchanger inside a gas furnace or oil furnaces work to hold heat from combustion gases before they are safely vented out of the home by inducer motors.
A single heat exchanger is standard but often two are incorporated in ENERGY STAR certified and high efficiency models. This allows more heat from combustion gases to be used to warm air before it is expelled through the flue pipe. High efficiency models with two heat exchangers are also referred to as condensing furnaces, as combustion byproducts condense from vapor to liquid and must drain through a condensate drain rather than being expelled through the flue. The furnace cost of these furnaces is typically more expensive than the initial cost of lower efficiency units.
Additional Furnace Features
When shopping for a gas furnace, oil furnace, or electric model to pair with the home’s cooling system, additional features you may want to consider include:
- Low NOx gas furnace that produces a reduced amount of nitrogen oxide and dioxide emissions
- Furnace size, which impacts overall comfort, performance, longevity, and initial cost
- ENERGY STAR qualified models with features that deliver high energy efficiency standards dictated by ENERGY STAR
- Heating system that is matched for your air conditioner, as a matched furnace and air conditioning unit offer more efficient performance
