Gas furnace and boiler installation experts
Gas heating systems are one of the most popular heating systems available. Gas furnaces and boilers typically use either natural gas or propane as the fuel source.
Both of these fuels are mined and processed to create an efficient heating option. Pipe Works Services are your local experts for gas heating services.
We can service your gas furnace or boiler to ensure maximum efficiency, or replace an old, inefficient oil furnace or boiler with a state-of-the-art system to save money and improve comfort.
Understanding furnace efficiency rating
A furnace, boiler, or water heater burns fuel to generate heat that is sent as an air stream in your ducts or into the water in your pipes. The efficiency rating is what percentage of that heat gets into your air or water. What happens to the rest of the heat? It goes up the chimney and is lost into the sky.
Therefore, a 15-year-old furnace that is 65% efficient is putting 35% of the heat you paid for up the chimney. A 96% efficient furnace only “wastes” 4%! This has a huge impact on your heating costs, and since the cost of the fuel you put through a furnace, boiler, or water heater during its lifetime is much greater than the cost of the unit itself, it’s worth it to install the very highest efficiency equipment available.
Choosing the right gas furnace
Like most gas-burning appliances, gas-fired furnaces and boilers can easily be modified to burn propane or natural gas fuel. A furnace will supply hot air to a forced-air heating system; a boiler supplies hot water for heating and/or washing.
Propane contains more energy than natural gas, so producing a given amount of heat will require less propane than natural gas. However, propane is also more expensive than natural gas, offsetting its higher energy content. The choice between the two fuels often depends on what is available locally. Natural gas arrives in homes via underground pipes, while propane is stored in one or more tanks located outside the house that are refilled as necessary.
