If you are thinking of buying a new boiler, you will need to consider the benefits of a condensing gas furnace. This type of gas furnace is quite popular as a result of the higher efficiency as well as more energy savings associated with its use.

You can choose either a wall mounted or floor mounted condensing gas furnace unit, but most importantly you have to make sure that the contractor that works on it has proper qualifications.

  • 2. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell If you are thinking of buying a new boiler, you will need to consider the benefits of a condensing gas furnace. This type of gas furnace is quite popular as a result of the higher efficiency as well as more energy savings associated with its use. It has become a preference to many people in comparison to the conventional gas furnaces.
  • 3. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell Experts say that it has an annual fuel utilization efficiency, which is otherwise known as AFUE, of at least 90%. The AFUE represents the long term average efficiency of the gas furnace. The high efficiency of the condensing gas furnace is reflected in its ability to capture the latent heat energy that comes from a condensate gas and goes to a heat exchanger.
  • 4. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell It has a design that enables it to reduce the heat vapor that disappears via the flue. The boiler of this system condenses the vapor and takes it back to the unit where it undergoes heating so that it can be reused. Reusing of heat represents fuel savings. There are other considerations you should put in mind to be able to get the most out of the condensing gas furnace.
  • 5. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell The air space between the carpet and the baseboard should be little if you want to reduce the heat you get from radiation. The arrangement of furniture in your house will also have an impact on the efficiency of the gas furnace. Make sure that the furniture is arranged in a manner that does not block the flow of air under dashboard.
  • 6. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell Also make sure that there are no dust buildups under the baseboard, baseboard end caps as well as improper arrangements of front covers that can prevent proper air flow. When purchasing the condensing gas furnace, apart from the annual fuel utilization efficiency rating, you will also need to consider other important features
  • 7. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell such as the material that has been used to make the heat exchanger and whether the boiler has a fan. The best condensing gas boiler should have a heat exchanger that is made from stainless steel in order prevent corrosion and increase performance. It is also important to make sure that the gas furnace has a fan that can provide air.
  • 8. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell Another thing to look for in the condensing furnace is its quietness. Be sure to buy a condensing gas furnace that is very quiet and has minimal emissions. It should also be easy to handle. The model you choose should be able to maximize combustion. It is also important to go for a system that comes with a warranty to avoid any unfortunate circumstances.
  • 9. The Condensing Gas Furnace In A Nutshell Even though this gas furnace can cost a bit more, it will last for long if it installed and maintained properly. You can choose either a wall mounted or floor mounted condensing gas furnace unit, but most importantly you have to make sure that the contractor that works on it has proper qualifications.
