If you have recently purchased a new heating system, you may want to have it maintained regularly to extend its lifespan. Similar to your car or any other mechanical equipment, a heating system tune-up is important to keep the unit at optimal performance.
Rooter Drain Service strongly recommends that you schedule an annual heating system tune-up before the temperature outside dramatically drops or around the fall season. It is expected that your heating system will be working overtime come the winter months, and you wouldn’t want it to fail on you when you need it the most.
Below are some of the heating systems we maintain:
Regarding the flue temperature, this should be 170F hotter in comparison to the supply air plenum temperature. On a 90% condensing furnace, however, it should be greater or equal to the supply air plenum temperature.
Some manufacturer’s control systems only require a 0.5uA. If your sensor test reads less than 1 uA, or 0.5 uA depending on the system, you’ll start to notice minor problems with your system until it eventually fails. We offer dependable flame sensor inspection and furnace tune-up services to households in areas such as New York and New Jersey.
If you have a non-variable speed motor, your system will have a maximum design total external static pressure (ESP) of 0.50-in wc. On the other hand, a variable-speed motor will have a maximum design ESP of 0.80-in wc.
If you have an 80% induced-draft furnace, you want 130 cfm of supply air per 10,000 Btu. On the other hand, for a 90% furnace, you need 150 cfm of supply air per 10,000 Btu. To set the appropriate cfm, please refer to a fan chart. This helps you better-set gas pressure and heat exchanger temperatures.
Furnace manufacturers commonly provide an installation manual for natural gas. This usually ranges anywhere from 3.2 to 3.8-in. Of course, to properly ensure your gas pressure is inspected to the best degree, we recommend contacting an HVAC professional.
There are different types of furnaces to choose from: a single-stage, dual-stage, and variable-speed furnace. Let’s take a look at the different furnace types, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
As far as your monthly energy bill, it will either remain a consistent cost or continue to climb higher due to its low efficiency. In addition, these furnaces are not very eco-friendly and will most likely create cold and hot spots throughout your home. It can also be a quite noisy system.
In contrast to the single-stage, a dual-stage furnace will bring more heating consistency to your home and adapts better to the changing of the weather. We offer dual-stage furnace and heating system tune-up services to homes in areas such as Middletown, Trenton, Haverford, Newark, and Upper Darby. We will help you choose a dual-stage furnace that is designed to help you save money on your energy bills.
As the highest-efficiency system out of the three, a variable speed furnace does not have to run at full capacity to get to your desired temperature. In addition, these type furnaces are also significantly quieter than the dual-stage and single-stage systems. Although the upfront cost for this system is higher, the energy bill is more consistent.
