Furnaces Offered at Jennings
- High Efficiency Gas/Natural Gas Furnace – A gas furnace uses gas to heat air which is then distributed throughout your home by utilizing a vent system. This allows the furnace to keep all the rooms in your home a comfortable temperature in the cooler winter months.
- Forced Air Furnace – This type of furnace warms air and then forces it through a series of vents and ductwork to heat the rooms of your home. The transfer system – the ductwork and vents – is separate from the actual heating system. Once the heat makes its rounds, the air cools and is funneled back into the heating system to be reheated and redistributed throughout the home. This type of heating system is the most used in the United States.
- Oil Furnace – Oil furnaces are used though out the United States but are much more common in the colder areas such as the Midwest and northern part of the country. Oil furnaces actually coverts the oil into heat which is then distributed throughout your home.
- Floor Furnace – A floor furnace is quite different than the traditional furnace typically seen in the United States. This type of furnace does not utilize ductwork. Instead, the furnace is put under the floor and then the heat is transmitted through a grille in the floor itself.
- Wall Furnace – Wall furnaces, just as the name implies, are built into the wall of a home. Often, these are used in smaller homes or in a home addition when the original heating system does not reach the new building.
- Propane Furnace – A propane furnace uses propane – instead of gas – to heat air which is then forced through a series of vents and ductwork throughout your home. There are several advantages to a propane furnace. First, the warm air produced by a propane furnace is typically warmer than that produced by electricity. They are also often more efficient and cleaner.
- Electric Furnace – An electric furnace uses electricity to heat air and also move the warm air throughout the heating system and into the rooms of your home. An electric furnace can be one of the more efficient types of furnaces. Having said that, it can also be one of the more costly when it comes to energy expense.
Did You Know?
While the efficiency of all furnaces has improved over the years, the industry uses an efficiency rating acronym, AFUE, which stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency to determine the highest efficiency furnaces on the market. This is a fancy way to say how much of the energy in the gas you purchase is actually turned into heat to warm your home over a years’ time.
The higher the AFUE number, the more efficient your gas furnace. AFUE values of 95% or higher are considered high efficiency and may qualify the home owner for a tax refund at the end of the year.
