It’s that time of year when winter storms begin causing havoc across the East Coast. Just last year, a monstrous winter storm left more than 90,000 residents in New Jersey without electricity as high winds and blizzard conditions brought down power lines across the state. And no electricity means no heat. Hopefully we won’t be faced with a massive power outage like last year, but if you wake up one morning and the house feels close to freezing, you’re going to want a trusted gas fired heating company that knows how to service your equipment. And, fast.
Gas Fired Heating Equipment 101
Gas fired heating equipment can be operated with natural gas or propane for the furnace to supply hot air to a forced-air heating system or the boiler to supply hot water for heating and hot water needs. With today’s cutting edge technology, gas furnaces can operate at over 94% efficiency.
What Does “Efficiency Rating” Mean?
When a furnace, boiler or water heater burns fuel, it generates heat. That heat is pushed into an air stream that goes in your ducts to heat your home or into your pipes to heat your water. The efficiency rating on a gas fired heating system refers to the percentage of heat that gets into your air or water. Are you wondering what happens to the left-over percentage of heat? It goes out of the chimney and into the sky.
Take, for example, a 14-year-old furnace that is 65% efficient. It is wasting 35% of the heat (which you’re paying for) …literally into thin air. Alternatively, a 95% efficient furnace only “wastes” 5%. With such a difference, you can see why a high efficiency rating is so important.
