When it is time to purchase a heating and air conditioning system, you will find that you have some choices to make. That is because there are a variety of system and component configurations to choose from, each with its own set of features and benefits. By evaluating your current comfort conditions and itemizing your expectations, you will be better able to focus on the right solutions for your home or office.
Gas furnaces operate both on natural gas and liquefied petroleum (LP). Gas furnaces typically deliver warmer air than heat pumps or hydronic heat. Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) is the measure of a gas furnace’s efficiency in converting fuel to heating energy. The higher the rating, the more efficient the furnace. If you have a gas furnace that is ten years old or more (rated at 60-70 AFUE), about thirty to forty cents of every dollar you spend for heating is going up the flue pipe and not into the heated space. The good news is, we can provide furnaces with AFUE ratings that are as high as 92.
Heat Pumps & Repair in Gainesville, FL
Unlike a furnace, a heat pump does not burn fuel to make heat. It simply uses electricity to move heat from one place to another. A heat pump is an energy efficient way to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer. Super-efficient heat pumps offer even greater comfort with two-stage cooling and three-staging heating. This means it operates with extreme productivity at a low speed. However, on days when more heating and cooling is required, it switches to the next stage for maximum comfort.
