Birmingham residents rely on our expert furnace repair, installation & maintenance.
Most residents in the Birmingham, Alabama, area choose to heat their homes with a central furnace system. Furnaces are fuel specific and run on natural gas, propane or fuel oil. Improvements in furnace technology have resulted in significant gains in efficiency, comfort and safety. A modern 90 AFUE rated furnace can save up to 30 percent in annual fuel costs when compared to an older 60 AFUE rated model.
Furnace Technology Innovations
If you have an old or obsolete furnace, we invite you to explore the new technologies that can help lower utility costs and keep your home warm and comfortable.
- Condensing Furnace: Traditional furnaces have a single heat exchanger and burner. By contrast, a condensing furnace incorporates a second heat exchanger so every possible BTU is extracted during the heating process. Condensing furnaces provide efficiencies up to 98 percent.
- Modulating Gas Valve: Single-stage furnaces are either off or running at 100 percent capacity. This can waste energy and cause short cycling during mild weather. The output of a modulating gas valve adjusts automatically to match the prevailing indoor load. Operating at a lower output helps save money on utility costs and provides a better level of comfort throughout your home.
- Variable-Speed Blower: A variable-speed blower is based on the principle of regulating velocity to address unpredictable load requirements. When the furnace is operating, the blower is constantly trimmed to provide the exact quantity of air required to maximize efficiency and comfort.
