Furnace Repair, Installation, and Maintenance
Bri-Ton services, installs, and repairs many makes and models of gas and propane furnaces in the Morgantown area. Gas furnaces range in AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) from 80%- 97%. The most new furnaces installed are 92% or higher in efficiency.
Furnaces are designed with Single stage, two stage and modulating gas valves. Single stage furnaces heat at the full rate of combustion while operating. Two stage furnaces have two levels of operation 1st stage and 2nd stage. In first stage the furnace operates at a lower combustion rate using less fuel. In milder temperatures 1st stage heating satisfies the heating demand. In colder temperatures 2nd stage heating comes on after the 1st stage runs for a period of time without meeting the set temperature. Modulating furnaces operate and increase the level of combustion equal to the amount needed for optimal efficiency
The Trane XR95 is an Energy Star Rated single stage gas furnace. It is 95% efficient
The Trane XL95 is an Energy Star Rated two stage gas furnace. It is 96% efficient
The Trane XC95M is modulating gas furnace with ComfortLink communication capabilities. It is 97.3% efficient.
Air handlers are used in conjunction with heat pump applications as an option other than a gas furnace. Air handlers have an evaporator coil, fan blower and electric heat backup all in one unit. Air handlers come with multi-speed blowers and varaible speed blowers for increased comfort.
The Trane TEM 4 has an All-Aluminum Coil and Multi-Speed Blower.
The Trane TEM 6 has an All-Aluminum Coil and Variable Speed Blower.
The Trane Hyperion Communicating has an All-Aluminum Coil and Variable Speed Blower.
Packaged Heat Pumps
Package units are designed as a complete outdoor unit with both heating and cooling capability. Package unit range from 14 SEER to 16 SEER cooling and 8.0 – 8.5 HSPF rating. The HSPF rating (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) is the ratio of heat energy delivered to electrical energy supplied. The higher the HSPF rating the higher the heating efficiency rating. The higher the SEER rating the higher the cooling efficiency rating.
The Trane XRc Packaged Heat Pump has a SEER rating of 14 and an 8 HSPF rating.
The Trane XLc Packaged Heat Pump is Energy Star Rated with a 16 SEER and 8.5 HSPF
