    Exploring Your Natural Gas Heating System Options

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Natural gas is a fantastic heating solution for your home. With natural gas, you will be provided with clean burning fuel that is extremely efficient and friendly to the environment. When you are installing a natural gas HVAC system in your home, you will have several types of equipment to choose from. Let’s take a closer look at all of the natural gas heating system options that are available to you.

    Gas-Fired Furnace

    Gas-fired furnaces are a popular choice for many homeowners. With a gas-fired furnace, you will benefit from efficient performance and affordable energy bills. These highly efficient furnaces are equipped with the latest advancements in furnace technology. Using a variable speed blower motor and a primary heat exchanger, this type of natural gas furnace is able to deliver heat to your entire home, while taking up very little space.

    Gas-Fired Boiler

    A gas-fired boiler generates heat by boiling water. As the water boils, it creates steam that can be used to heat the entire home. This steam is moved through radiators that are located throughout your living spaces. A gas-fired boiler is a durable and cost-effective solution for your natural gas home heating needs.

    Gas-Fired Water Heaters

    Natural gas is also a great solution for your home water heater. Gas-fired water heaters may be equipped with either a direct or indirect heating system. Each type of water heater will ensure that you are always provided with hot water. If your current water heater uses electric heating, you may be able to make the switch to natural gas.

    Understanding the Functioning of Your Water Heater

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Hot water is an essential part of day to day life. On a given day, you may use hot water for bathing, doing dishes, or a variety of other household tasks. Your water heater is your home’s primary source of heated water. If your water heater malfunctions, it can be helpful to understand the basic operation of its systems. To help you diagnose your water heater problem, here is a look at how your water heater functions.

    Tank

    The tank is one of the most important parts of your water heater. Your water heater tank is responsible for storing hot water until you are ready to use it. Typically, a standard water heater tank stores between 40 and 60 gallons of hot water. This metal tank is insulated with a specialized material that prevents heat from escaping.

    Heating Mechanism

    The heating mechanism is another primary water heater component. As water flows through a pipe and past the heating mechanism, it warms up. Water heaters may rely on electric or gas heating. An electric water heater contains a heating element within the tank, whereas a gas water heater uses a burner to heat the tank and warm the water.

    Pressure Relief Valve

    Your water heater contains several safety control devices. One important safety system is the pressure relief valve. This valve, which sits on top of the tank, regulates the pressure of the water heater. If the heated water causes pressure to build up, the pressure relief valve will release a small amount of steam.

    If your water heater is in need of repairs, be sure to contact Griffith Energy Services. We provide the Baltimore area with a complete range of top-quality home heating services, and our experts will ensure that your heater is in perfect working condition.

    Answers to Your Questions About Home Heating Oil Delivery

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Thanks to automatic home heating oil delivery, you can have your oil supply replenished without lifting a finger. Griffith Energy Services provides heating oil delivery to homes throughout the Baltimore area, and we’ll happily deliver oil to your property, too. Here are the answers to a few questions you might have about home heating oil delivery:  

    What are my home heating delivery options?

    We offer our clients two delivery options: will-call delivery and automatic delivery. If you prefer will-call delivery, we’ll only deliver oil to your home when you specifically ask for it. However, we have a minimum oil delivery of 150 gallons, and we ask that our clients allow 48 hours from the time of their request. If you sign up for automatic delivery, you can have one of our team members deliver oil according to a set schedule.  

    How do you know when to deliver heating oil?

    The timing of our automatic deliveries is based on the degree day system. This system factors in the local temperature and the amount of heating oil our customers consume on a regular basis. We make a point of checking the forecast so our clients can have enough oil in the event of a devastating storm. Those who sign up for our automatic delivery receive the area’s only written “no-run-out guarantee.”    

    How can I change my oil delivery schedule?

    There are certain circumstances that may change your heating oil needs. For instance, adding a new room to your home may cause your heating system to work a little harder, thus increasing your oil consumption. If there’s a significant change in your oil consumption, or if there’s another reason why you wish to change your delivery schedule, don’t hesitate to let us know.

    Call Griffith Energy Services at (888) 474-3391 if you have any questions about our heating oil delivery services. Our goal is to make sure you’re as comfortable in your Baltimore home as possible. Visit our website to learn more about our company.
