Rheem High Efficiency Furnaces
Modern furnaces, compared to furnaces manufactured 30 years ago, are remarkably efficient. A furnace’s efficiency is rated by its annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. The AFUE measures furnace efficiency of converting natural gas, propane or fuel oil into heat. The higher the rating the more efficient the furnace. Entry level furnaces start at 80% efficiency. To check any appliance’s energy efficiency rating, just look for the Energy Star label.
Rheem produces the best high-efficiency furnaces available on the market today. High-efficiency furnaces are rated 90+% and cost more to install than low-efficiency furnaces. In the long run, once you take the payoff period into account, high-efficiency furnaces are cheaper than low-efficiency furnaces. Bill Smith Plumbing & Heating has an excellent relationship with Xcel Energy and we can help you determine which energy rebates are available for an efficient furnace installation.
Home Heating System Sizing
An oversized furnace costs more to operate than a correctly sized furnace. This is because oversized furnaces cycle on and off too often, wasting energy. A load calculation takes into account the size of your house, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof, and a host of other criteria to determine the appropriate furnace capacity. Offering customers high quality, no gimmicks service, Bill Smith heating technicians are trained on the latest installation techniques.
