Furnace and boiler efficiency is measured in AFUES. (Annual Fuel Unit Efficiency) While older furnaces and boilers operate at an average efficiency of 60%, new systems can operate with efficiencies as high as 93%.
Energy set back or boiler reset systems regulate heating water temperature to outdoor and inside temperature swings. The colder the outdoor and room temperature, the warmer the water will be in your heating system. Energy setback systems reduce annual fuel consumption by about 7%.
Geothermal systems can supply hot water for drinking and bathing, as well as heat and cool a building with energy from the ground. Regardless of outside temperatures, these systems are extremely efficient.
Radiant floor heating systems offer another way to reduce home heating costs by another 30% to 40% while delivering unsurpassed comfort to your home or office.
Whether you are looking to have a radiant floor or geothermal heating system installed in your new home; or are considering replacing or upgrading the heating in your existing home, we will work with your architect, builder, or designer to develop the perfect heating solution for you.
