Rheem High Efficiency Furnaces
Compared to furnaces manufactured thirty years ago, modern furnaces are remarkably more efficient. A furnace’s efficiency is rated by its AFUE—its annual fuel utilization efficiency 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 will be. Entry level furnaces start at eighty percent 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 ninety-plus percent and cost more to install than low-efficiency furnaces, though, 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, so we can help you determine which energy rebates are available for an efficient furnace installation.
Home Heating System Sizing
Because oversized furnaces cycle on and off much too often, wasting energy, oversized furnaces cost more to operate than correctly sized furnaces. A load calculation takes into account the size of your entire house, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof, and other criteria in order to determine the appropriate furnace capacity. Offering customers no gimmicks, high quality service, Bill Smith heating technicians are expertly trained on the latest installation techniques.

Hot Water and Radiant System Boilers
Radiant heating systems are more efficient than baseboard heating and forced-air heating because of the elimination of duct losses. Radiant heat is a great choice for people with allergies since allergens are not distributed in to the air like forced air systems. Click here for more information about boiler based heating systems.
