Furnace Repair in Reading PA
When it comes to furnace repair service, there are several signs that you need to be aware of in order to ensure your safety and the longevity of your system.
- One of the most common warning signs is strange noises coming from the furnace. If you start to hear clanking, rumbling or banging sounds, it could be a sign that something is wrong with the furnace's fan motor or other interior parts.
- If your home is not being heated properly or if you notice a spike in your energy bills, this can also indicate a problem with your furnace and should not be ignored.
- If the pilot light on your furnace keeps going out, this could be an indication of carbon monoxide leaks. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause serious health problems and even death if exposed for long periods of time, so any issue related to it needs to be addressed immediately by a trained professional.
If you find yourself needing repair or installation services for your furnace, our team of experienced technicians are here to help. We'll make sure that all potential problems are located and fixed quickly and safely so you can rest assured knowing that your home will remain warm and comfortable.
CONVENTIONAL AND CONDENSING FURNACES
Furnaces produce heat through the combustion of natural gas or heating oil in the furnace's burner. A blower pushes air across heated coils where it is then delivered to rooms via the home’s ductwork system. The combustion gases created by burning the fuel are vented through the chimney or, with high-efficiency condensing furnaces, through a wall.
The two most common types of gas furnaces are the conventional furnace and the high-efficiency condensing furnace. Both systems will keep you warm and cozy. Both systems take in cold air return from the house and run it through an air filter. Both utilize a circulating fan to move the air and heat it with a gas burner controlled by an electronic ignition.
The primary differences are in the heat exchanger technology that extracts heat from the combustion process and in the method used to exhaust the resulting combustion gases. Condensing furnaces are more efficient because they extract more heat from the combustion process.
Conventional furnaces typically operate at higher temperatures, so some of the heat is vented to the outside during the combustion process. This means the heat exchanger is not extracting as much heat as possible from the combustion process. Depending upon its age and type, a conventional non-condensing furnace will typically achieve 80% to 85% efficiency.
Condensing furnaces operate at lower temperatures and continue extracting heat from the combustion gases even after they have cooled and condensed. This is accomplished by means of two heat exchangers instead of one. The secondary heat exchanger handles the corrosive condensed exhaust gases produced by water and carbon dioxide, harvesting their heat until condensed water drips out of the heat exchangers. The lower operating temperatures result in less energy consumption and keep more heat in the heating system.
Also, unlike conventional furnaces, the condensing furnace’s combustion air intake is vented directly from the furnace to the outside of the home. Good condensing furnaces can achieve energy efficiency of 90% or more.
Although condensing gas furnaces generally have the highest efficiency ratings, you may be looking for an efficient oil-fired furnace. Advanced Comfort Specialists has extensive experience with clean-burning oil furnaces that will provide you with plenty of warmth, excellent fuel efficiency and significant energy savings.
Regardless of which fuel you use to heat your home or business, the easiest and the most cost-effective way of reducing your heating expense is to keep your system well-tuned. In addition to our installation and repair services, we offer maintenance plans that will extend the life of your furnace and protect you from hazards.
