furnaces and boilers | department of energy

Although older furnace and boiler systems had efficiencies in the range of 56% to 70%, modern conventional heating systems can achieve efficiencies as high as 98.5%, converting nearly all the fuel to useful heat for your home. Energy efficiency upgrades and a new high-efficiency heating system can often cut your fuel bills and your furnace's pollution output in half

unit space heater

The unit heater’s heat exchanger must be able to handle the slightly acidic water and there must be a drain connection. The Reznor UEAS line of unit heaters claim a combustion efficiency of 93%. Reznor® V3 Series Model UEAS gas-fired separated combustion unit heaters are available in 4 sizes ranging from 130,000 to 310,000 BTUH gas input. Heaters are designed for up to 93% thermal efficiency and are …

commercial gas-fired heaters- modine hvac

With efficiencies up to 97%, the Effinity ® is the most efficient gas unit heater in North America. We also have high efficiency blower units to push and distribute heat where you need it most. To stand up to corrosive environments our PTP model is the perfect solution, …

condensate drainage in a high efficiency gas furnace

Mar 08, 2019 · High efficiency (or 90%, or condensing) furnaces use a set of two heat exchangers in order to retrieve more heat from the combustion products than their mid-efficiency counterparts. Because of this, they generate flue gases much colder than those of a mid-efficiency or natural draft unit

Mar 03, 2008 · Draft sealed combustion induced gas-fired burners (90-plus AFUE)*: • Efficiency - 88-92 percent. • O2 - 5-7 percent. • CO2 - 7-8.5 percent. • Stack temp - Less than 125°. • Draft - 0.02 to 0.08 inch wc. • CO - <100 ppm (undiluted). Draft induced gas fired burners*: • Efficiency - 80-82 percent. • O2 - 7-9 percent. • CO2 - 6.5-8 percent

5 common problems withhigh-efficiencyfurnaces

First, set the thermostat to call for heat. At the furnace, disconnect the power leads attached to the pressure switch terminals. Set the multimeter to ohms (resistance test), then place each multimeter lead on a separate terminal on the pressure switch. The meter should read 0 …

Apr 10, 2021 · What sets high-efficiency furnaces apart from standard ones is a secondary heat exchanger in which exhaust gases from the primary heat exchanger are cooled and condensed into a liquid, a process that releases heat and makes it available for circulation. For this process to be effective, the high-efficiency furnace, which is also known as a condensing furnace, has to be sealed, so it needs …

a visual guide to ahigh-efficiency condensingfurnaces

With condensing furnaces, it is common to find at least a two-stage (dual-stage) burner gas valve, which has electronic controls that allow the burner flame to be at either high or low settings, depending on the level of heat required. The most efficient system includes a modulating (variable-capacity) gas valve and electronic control system for the burner, paired with an ECM-type blower motor. This allows for fine …

what toknow about high-efficiency furnaces| hunker

Jan 21, 2019 · When the switch to a high-efficiency furnace or boiler takes half of that partnership away, the flue becomes too large for the water heater, now known as an orphaned water heater, to draw properly. To correct this requires an insert into the chimney flue—an additional expense that must be taken into account when budgeting for a high-efficiency replacement to a mid-efficiency heating unit

water heater backdrafting- how to fix and prevent

The recommendation is to buy a high-efficiency water heater, with an efficiency of over 90%, such as Vertex from AO Smith or Polaris. This is especially important if converting from the low efficient unit to this type. High-efficient water heater does not vent flue gases through the standard chimney, but the sealed plastic pipes

Sep 15, 2019 · Packaged Heat Pump Units. A packaged unit contains all the heating and cooling elements in one large outside unit. Packaged unitsare easier to install than split systems, but if you have the room, we recommend a split system since it is more energy-efficient. Heat pumps aren’t the greatest at heating homes below 35-40 degrees
