The most commonly used Torontoheating appliances to keep your home stay warm and cozy in the winter season are gas furnaces. The major factors for choosing them because they are working reliable, efficient and noiselessly.



There are many types of forced air furnaces with different technologies used to meet energy efficiency and user ease levels. Furnaces drop into two extensive types:

  •     Conventional type Furnace

  •     Condensing type Furnace

These two extensive types operate very differently. In conventional types prior to cooling and condensing it use to exhaust combustion gases firm and warm so the gases will exit the chimney vent and heat exchanger is not collecting as much heat by the combustion process of fuel. The arrival of the condensing type furnace that all changed. Condensing types capture heat even after the combustion exhaust gases have "cooled" and compressed. It uses two heat exchanger, one for primary heat exchange and the other to handle the corrosive compressed exhaust gases of water and carbon dioxide. These gases are causing heat till the water condensate drain out from the heat exchanger and the vent gases escape from a plastic PVC pipe rather than a chimney.
We can also categories furnace according to the operation of a burner and blower know as Stage. The stage is describing the operation of the furnace's burner and blower, and indirectly, the various technology controlling the burner and blower. These stages grouped as single stage, two stage and modulating stage.
The low cost type is single stage having one “on” stage for both burner and blower. Two stage furnace has electric switch that allows to on the burner flame and burner at high or low temperature, accordingly heat level required. In modulating type have electronic system which controls burner and blower motor that allows accredited regulations to the burner setting and blower motor speed and modulates them to always keep the temperature of the room very close to the thermostat setting.

Efficiency Requirements for Toronto Furnaces Installations;




Installation, repairs and replacement, Efficiency are something that actually matters, the metric used to measure furnace efficiency is called the AFUE rating, stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency and it measures the amount of fuel converted to heat in the space in proportion to the amount of fuel which enters the furnace. If the AFUE are high the furnace will give high efficiency.
 
Furnace
AFUE Ratings
Low efficiency
55% --- 78%
Mid efficiency
80%---83%
High efficiency
90%---98%

  1. Nice article, well define two types of furnaces.

  3. I didn't know gas furnaces could operate differently like this. That goes to show how much I know about furnaces. My wife has been wanting to get our furnace fixed for a while now. She says she can't sit through another winter like the last one. http://www.salemheatinginc.com/product-category/furnaces
