Forget any pre-conceived notions you may have about gas furnaces. Today’s gas furnaces with air conditioners are not the big, clunky furnaces of old. Modern gas furnaces are actually highly efficient units designed to not only modulate the air in your home but keep your utility bills manageable.
This is because a modern gas furnace with air conditioner typically has an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating (AFUE rating) of 65 percent or more. Some gas furnaces with air conditioners have AFUE ratings as high as 90 (we carry these, by the way!). As with other types of efficiency measurements – including SEER ratings and HSPF ratings – the higher an AFUE rating, the more efficient the gas furnace.
But as we’ve stated elsewhere on this site – every house is different, and each homeowner’s need is unique. That’s why Southern Air provides expert consultation to help you understand which gas furnace with air conditioner is right for your home. We offer several kinds of popular furnaces, including:
Central warm-air furnaces.
There are two types of central warm-air furnaces. Gravity-based central warm-air furnaces use cold air, circulated through ducts and the furnace itself. After passing through the furnace this cold air is then redistributed through the home as warm air. Forced air furnaces force warm air through a home’s ductwork and distributes it throughout the living areas.
Steam or hot water furnaces.
These types of gas furnaces push hot water or steam through a radiator or a network of pipes.
For years Southern Air has been helping homeowners throughout Shreveport and the surrounding areas identify the best type of gas furnace with air conditioner for their particular needs. We can help you, too. We offer gas furnaces with the best possible AFUE ratings, ensuring your furnace will not only provide comfort, but energy-efficiency, as well.
