Determining a Heater’s Efficiency Rating

Furnaces are one of the most popular forms of heater systems in Chicagoland. However, it is important to figure out the efficiency level of the furnace before buying a new system. All furnaces must vent gases to prevent carbon monoxide from accumulating. During this ventilation process, some heat will escape. Heaters with higher Average Fuel Utilization Efficiency levels (known as AFUE) are better at stopping heat from constantly leaving the home. Finding the appropriate model with an adequate AFUE rating is much simpler when you have an expert by your side, so give us a call today.

Preparing for a New Heater

Before a new heater can be installed several distinct components must be prepared, or the system will not work well. An experienced HVAC contractor will make the proper checks and connections of the ductwork. They will also make sure that all the necessary electrical wires and gas lines have been placed appropriately to connect with the new unit.

A thorough preparation process for a heater installation includes:

  • Conducting a complete load calculation – To figure out how powerful the new heating system must be professional HVAC technicians must consider several factors. 
  • Examining any current ductwork – If a duct system is already present, it needs to be checked that its size is fully capable of fitting with the new unit’s airflow. Heater specialists will check both the supply that goes to the air ducts as well as the flow that returns to the blower motor. 
  • Adding required pipes or liners – Certain furnaces need additional parts before they can begin heating the property. A knowledgeable technician will install a new PVC drain line or a liner for the chimney flue if it is required by the specific type of selected heater.
