Proper Retrofit Furnace Sizing
Residential furnaces work best when they are properly sized. The Saskatchewan Research Council developed a furnace sizing protocol that uses the actual meter readings from gas billing to size replacement furnaces. The data shows that most oil or gas furnaces are grossly oversized, up to 250% bigger than they need to be. The sample calculations are included, giving contractors alternative ways to properly size equipment. Unfortunately, further research is required to determine the amount of energy savings of a properly sized high efficiency furnace.
