Why is it important to have a knowledgeable expert perform calculations to size a new furnace right for my home?

Every home is unique and requires a specific size of furnace to maximize its life expectancy, efficiency, and comfort. For instance, if a furnace is sized too small, it will not heat your home completely on colder days. This will cause it to work harder to produce the same output. A furnace that is sized too large will “short cycle”, meaning it will turn on and off too frequently. Short cycling will shorten the life of the furnace and can cause excess moisture accumulation in your home.

Our heating experts will come to your home and perform heat loss calculations to determine the best solution for your individual home. Call or fill out the free estimate form to schedule your free in-home estimate.

What is the difference between one stage, two stage, and modulating operation in a furnace?

One Stage Furnace

A one stage furnace operates with the gas flame as either on or off. When your home gets below the targeted temperature, the sensor will trigger the gas flame to turn on at full force. Once the sensor indicates that it has reached the targeted temperature, the heat will shut completely off. This means your home’s targeted temperature is less consistent, affecting your comfort. For instance, with a target of 70 degrees, actual temperatures in your house might range as low as 66 degrees and as high as 74 degrees. Think of it like a car. You wouldn’t turn your car off at every red light, as the constant starting and stopping would waste fuel. The same same idea applies to a one stage furnace.

Two Stage Furnace

A two stage furnace works more efficiently to provide consistent temperatures for improved comfort. For a target of 70 degrees, actual temperatures in your house might range from as low as 68 degrees to as high as 72 degrees.

Modulating Furnace

A modulating furnace will provide maximum comfort and energy efficiency. It’s like using cruise control—the furnace makes incremental changes to keep your temperature steady. There’s no rush of a high fan followed by a shut off and gradual cooling. Your furnace will automatically adjust within .5 or .65% increments of your targeted temperature setting. This type of gas furnace uses fuel most efficiently since it’s not stopping and starting.

What does AFUE mean and why is it important in selecting my furnace?

AFUE stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency. It’s a measure of thermal (heating) efficiency used for combustion equipment such as furnaces and condensing boilers. The AFUE is an average for the year. The higher the number, the more energy efficient it is. For example, traditional firewood is only 45-55% AFUE, which means that a significant percentage is not used for heating, and is lost in exhaust. Propane or heating oil are typically 70-89% AFUE. When you see that a furnace says 98% AFUE, such as the Bryant Evolution 987M furnace, that means it produces 98 BTUs of heat for every 100 BTUs of natural gas you use as fuel– an amazing efficiency rating.

Most utility and EnergyStar programs only provide rebates for 95% AFUE and higher because they are looking for maximum energy savings. An 80% AFUE furnace does lose 20% of its fuel and is less efficient, but is perfect for homes with a heat pump hybrid system or an unusual layout. The savings you’ll gain from switching from an 80% AFUE furnace to a 95% AFUE furnace is about 15%, but may be higher if your 80% furnace is nearing the end of its life.

What furnace replacement utility rebates are available?

Because we work closely with PSE and other utility programs, Washington Energy Services can ensure you maximize your furnace rebates. Check them out: Utility Rebates Available 

What is the most popular equipment for heating Puget Sound area homes?

For Puget Sound area heating, the gas furnace tends to be the top choice. As Northwest residents have become more knowledgeable about energy efficiency, heat pumps have gained in popularity. In many city environments, ductless heat pumps are an excellent heating and cooling equipment choice, especially when replacing electric baseboard heat. They’re incredibly quiet and can work within the local noise ordinances of Seattle and surrounding areas.

When there is space to place an air-sourced heat pump, these are also ideal. They turn your furnace into an energy efficient hybrid heating and cooling system, which can help you save big on heating costs. Learn more about heat pump use in the Puget Sound area under our heat pump section.

Are 80% furnaces going away?

There is pending government legislation that would require most homeowners to purchase 90% AFUE furnaces or higher. Legislation will likely include exceptions.

Does WES offer furnace repair?

Definitely. In fact, if you have no heat, call us 24/7 at 800-398-4663. Yes, even in the middle of the night. Your comfort is our concern.

If you suspect your furnace is failing and needs service, or wish to get a maintenance tune-up service performed on your furnace, please call during business hours or complete the request for service form.

Does improving the efficiency of my furnace really matter?

Yes! According to EnergyStar, if every gas furnace sold in the US met the 95% efficiency recommendation of Energy Star, the savings would be about $171 million per year and annual greenhouse gas emissions would reduce by the equivalent of 177,000 cars. That’s a significant savings for both the environment and your wallet.
