Often times you’ll hear us discuss the importance of energy efficiency when referring to new furnaces. But how can energy efficient HVAC Systems help you save money?
Furnace efficiency is measured in AFUE or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. This is a percentage that represents the amount of natural gas that is actually converted into heat for your home.
For instance, an 80% AFUE furnace uses 80% of its gas to create heat, and the other 20% is lost during the combustion process. Therefore, the higher the percentage, the less gas you will use, and the lower your energy bills will be. There are different efficiency ranges, and it is important to understand the benefits and losses associated with owning a unit that falls within one of these ranges.
Depending on the age of your system, you may already have an idea of how inefficient it truly is. If you are interested in learning more about the energy efficient systems we offer or if you need help determining the efficiency of your current furnace, fill out our online form to schedule your free in-home estimate.
Our highly trained HVAC service technicians are able to handle a variety of issues. From boilers and furnaces to heat pumps and air conditioners, our technicians are proficiently trained to handle nearly any situation your HVAC systems can throw at them. However, the expertise of our technicians is not needed in every situation. Hundreds of times a year, we have customers who call us out for problems that really aren’t problems at all. Flipping a switch and setting a thermostat are “repairs” that nearly any homeowner can handle on their own. We know that our customers work hard for their money, and that they don’t want to waste it on unnecessary service calls. So, the next time the furnace breaks down, there are a few points to check before calling.
Once you have performed all of these checks and your unit still won’t kick on, it is time to call us. The good news is that our team of friendly and knowledgeable repair technicians is available 24/7 for all of your heating repair needs.
It may be warm outside right now, but in a matter of weeks the temperature will be falling along with the leaves. Fall is on the way and it is time to get your furnace ready for the upcoming winter season. Performing your pre-season maintenance can save you money and the hassle of mid- winter repairs.

There’s so much in the HVAC industry that is counter intuitive if you haven’t spent any time working with this kind of machinery, and the thermostat is no different. People assume (and you cannot really blame them) that if you set an air conditioner lower, the machine will work harder and faster, but the truth is that is will just run longer to reach the desired temperature. Not what you would assume, but reasonable and understandable after an explanation. Thermostat location is no different.
It’s just a control box like your TV remote. Who cares where I put it? Actually, it is extremely important where you put it, namely because the thermostat is also a thermometer sensing the temperature in the air. If the thermostat is installed in a poor location, you will experience numerous hot and cold spots in your home.
