Sacramento Heating Installation and Furnace Installation
Understanding how your heating or furnace system works.
Central Heating systems are generally considered forced air furnaces. Air is forced over either a heat exchanger or a bank of electric resistance heaters. Forced air furnaces come in four types.
What type of heating or furnace system do you have?
A gas burning central furnace utilizes a heat exchanger and a blower motor together, within a cabinet. Gas is ignited on the inside of the heat exchanger and burns to a warm temperature. Air is then circulated over the outside of the heat exchanger by the blower motor and that warm air is distributed through your ducts into your home.
An electric furnace utilizes a bank of electric resistance heaters and a blower motor located within the same casing. On a call for heat, electricity flows through the resistance heaters and they warm up. The blower motor then circulates air over the resistance heaters and distributes the warm air through the ducts within your home.
Heat pumps are considered a form of electric heat. Heat pumps utilize a compressor, outdoor coil with fan, indoor coil and a blower motor to warm your house. A heat pump is an air conditioner with the ability to reverse its refrigerant flow, thus extracting whatever heat is available outside and discharging this heat throughout your house utilizing your duct system. Sacramento is an excellent place to use a heat pump because of our temperate and relatively arid climate. The cost per BTU, using a heat pump verses a gas furnace, is almost equal.
A hydronic heater utilizes hot water to heat your home. Hydronic heaters are more common in commercial applications but are beginning to be utilized in the Sacramento residential area. The way they work is your water heater supplies hot water and circulated through a radiator coil located in a cabinet with a blower motor and controls. On a demand for heat, the pump circulates hot water through the coil and the blower motor distributes the air through the ductwork in your home.
No matter which type of furnace you choose to install, Premium Heating and Air Conditioning has trained, licensed and bonded technicians who can get the work done fast and efficiently. Give Premium a call today and let us help you decide which heating and air conditioning system is right for you.
Sacramento Heating and Furnace Pump Energy Ratings
Furnaces and heat pumps each have their own performance rating scale. Furnaces performance is measured in AFUE. AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. It is a simple formula that indicates what percentage of fuel used by your furnace is converted into actual heat for your home. The standard model in this area is an 80% furnace. In other words, if your furnace uses 100,000 BTU’s of input, your furnace will convert 80,000 BTU’s of heat to be distributed by your duct system utilizing your blower motor. There are higher efficiency furnaces that have AFUE’s of up to 96% efficiency. Heat pumps performance is measured by HSPF. HSPF stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. It is a formula similar to SEER, in that it measures how your heat pump performs in heating mode over a period of time. The higher the HSPF the less electricity you use to generate heat for your home. Standard measures of 7.0 to 9.5 HSPF are most common in this area. Utility rebate amounts increase with higher AFUE furnaces and higher HSPF heat pumps.
