TYPES OF HEATING SYSTEMS
Gas and Oil Heating Systems
Inside the furnace or boiler, fuel is sprayed into a heating combustion chamber where it is mixed with air and burned. The combustion products are vented out of the building through a flue pipe. The flames heat a metal box called a heat exchanger. In a heating system and furnace air is heated in the heat exchanger, while in a boiler, water is heated in the heat exchanger. For hot-water systems, the water is heated to about 180°F; in steam systems, the water is boiled, creating steam.
Heating system controls regulate when the various components of the heating system turn on and off. The most important heating control from your standpoint is the thermostat, which turns the system or at least the distribution system on and off to keep you comfortable. But there are other controls in a heating system, including aqua stats, valves, vents, fan thermostats, and dampers
Maintenance and Tune-ups Recommended to be done only by Heating System Technicians
Oil-fired heating systems should be tuned up and cleaned every year, heating gas-fired systems every two years, and heat pumps every two or three years. Regular heating tune-ups not only cut heating costs, but they also increase the lifetime of the system, reduce heating breakdowns and heating repair costs, and cut the amount of carbon monoxide, smoke, and other pollutants pumped into the atmosphere. System modifications to improve energy efficiency can be made when the service technician is there for the annual tune-up
The company that sells oil or gas usually has trained technicians who can test your furnace or boiler, clean it, and tune it for optimum efficiency. Independent heating contractors provide this service as well. A complete heating tune-up usually costs $50-100 and reduces your heating bill from 3-10%. Some heating companies perform these services as part of a regular heating repair service contract. Check to make sure that all of the services listed below are included.
Tests the Technician Should Perform During a heating tune-up. The heating service technician will perform a number of tests to determine the system's performance and efficiency. Incomplete combustion of fuel and excessively high flue gas temperatures are the two main contributors to low efficiency. If the technician cannot get the combustion efficiency up to at least 75% after tuning it up, you should consider installing a new heating system or at least modifying your present heating system to increase its heating efficiency.
Note that the combustion efficiency is different from annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). For older burners, the AFUE can be estimated by multiplying the combustion efficiency by 0.85. Thus, if the combustion efficiency is 75%, the AFUE is around 0.75 x 0.85 = 64%.
The technician should measure the efficiency of your system both before and after tuning it up and provide you with a copy of the results. Combustion efficiency is determined indirectly, based on some of the following tests:
1) flue temperature
2) percent carbon dioxide or oxygen
3) smoke number
4) carbon monoxide
