Why Use a Mountain HVAC Specialist?
Ponderosa specializes in servicing gas fireplaces and furnaces to make them operate at peak efficiency at higher elevations. At altitude, gas fireplaces and furnaces can be prone to different problems due to gas derating. Gas fireplaces and furnaces operating at higher elevations face issues related to burning and pressure due to the fact that the air is thinner, so there is less oxygen available for use in the combustion process.
Gas furnaces need to be set up properly to run efficiently at higher elevations. For example, Natural Gas and Propane Btu inputs need to be adjusted properly so that the units aren't "overfired," causing the furnace to overheat and shortcycle. In addition to reducing the efficiency of a unit, an overfired furnace can also pose safety concerns by improper burning. Incomplete combustion can cause excessive carbon monoxide production.
In addition to proper setup, furnaces at higher elevations have other issues which need to be addressed. For example, pressure switches need to be replaced upon installation to keep furnaces running properly.
Ponderosa has been diagnosing and solving these problems in mountain furnaces for over 15 years. When Colorado Natural Gas set out to convert about 4,000 Conifer & Evergreen homes from Propane to Natural Gas, they turned to the experience of Todd Hutchcroft and Ponderosa for help with the job. Ponderosa served as a subcontractor on the Propane/Natural Gas Conversion project for about 2 years.
