When the desert air of North Las Vegas gets frigid, you’ll turn to your furnace for relief. If your current furnace keeps breaking down, doesn’t heat consistently, or causes your utility bills to be too high, it’s time for an energy-efficient replacement. Learn how a new furnace installation offers powerful and efficient heating you can count on when you need it the most.
Condensation of Flue Gases for Added Efficiency
A furnace installation of a high-efficiency system reduces heat loss due to the emission of flue gases. The furnace does this with a second heat exchanger. This extra heat exchanger captures the heat from the flue gases and uses it to preheat the fresh air brought into the combustion chamber. The secondary heat exchanger offers an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating of 98.5%, explains the Department of Energy.
Electronic Ignition Reduces Wasted Fuel
Old furnaces have pilot lights that always burn gas. New furnaces do away with the pilot. Instead, they use electronic ignition. These hot-surface ignitions are more energy efficient. They quickly ignite the gas so the blower can rapidly push heated air through your home’s ducts and into your living space.
Variable-Speed Blowers Deliver More Consistent and Efficient Heat
When planning a furnace installation, choose a system with a variable-speed motor. The motor operates at the lowest necessary speed for a longer period of time. Because more energy is needed to start the motor, this reduces total energy consumption. Variable-speed motors deliver more consistent warmth to your home. This helps eliminate cold spots and gives a boost to your comfort. Furnaces with variable-speed blower motors have higher airflow rates, and they filter your home’s air more frequently. This results in improved indoor air quality. These motors operate quietly, which will help you sleep better at night.
