Greater Atlanta Furnace Repair Services by HVAC Experts
Get your furnace performing at optimum efficiency while improving your comfort
When your furnace distributes warmly conditioned air throughout your home, it also has a fan pulling cooler air back to the furnace for reheating through the return ductwork. The most common types of furnaces include propane and natural gas.
The most common problems J.R. Bolton’s experienced experts solve
Even though everything appears to be functioning properly with your furnace, that may not necessarily be the case. It can still be grossly inefficient, simply working improperly, or even operating dangerously.
These are the most common problems we find with furnaces:
How to understand efficiency
Both your furnace and water heater burn fuel to generate heat. “Efficiency” describes the percentage of heat that enters your air or water. The rest of the heat is lost through your exhaust.
10-15-year-old furnaces routinely burn at 65-75% efficiency. That was good back in those days, but now that’s considered outdated and inefficient. It also means that 25-35% of your heat gets lost, never helping you stay comfortable. In fact, law requires your furnace to burn at least at 78% efficiency.
Today, you shouldn’t accept anything less than a 95% efficient furnace. While you can get furnaces with up to 98% efficiency today, your costs increase dramatically as you approach that number. Generally, you’re getting the best value for your dollar when you get a furnace with 95% efficiency (measured by “AFUE” rating). However, if it fits your budget, it’s a wise idea to get the highest efficiency furnace available.
J.R. Bolton Services can evaluate your home and walk you through all the best furnace options for your needs.
The top factor you must consider if you want to save money when buying a furnace
To calculate your savings, you must know what fuel types are available locally. Electricity is an option, but costs much more than any kind of gas. However, you’ll already have access to natural gas or propane, which are affordable. When replacing your existing furnace, you can switch fuel types.
