Why Choose a Furnace System?
Though furnaces used to be the most advanced form of home heating available on the market, many new options have risen in the ensuing years. Why, then, should you choose a furnace now when there are more modern technologies available? Quite simply, because furnaces are still quite good at what they do. Furnaces became the most popular heating system types in the country by being affordable, effective, and versatile. No matter where you are in the country, or what sized home you need to heat, there is likely a furnace that can suit your situation. This is why you should still consider a furnace for your home heating solution.
Gas or Electric?
We often get the question from homeowners: "Which furnace type is better?" The answer is that it entirely depends on your individual situation. Each furnace type is designed to serve a different type of home, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. That is part of the reason why you should always consult with a professional before deciding on a furnace system for your home. An HVAC expert will be able to evaluate your home, and determine which furnace type would be the best for you. You should always consult with us before making a decision about your home heating situation.
Electric furnaces use large heating elements to warm the air circulating throughout the home. As the electric current runs through the large heating element, it meets resistance that causes it to throw off heat. This heat is absorbed by the air flowing over the heating coil, which is then blown throughout the house by the air handler. Electric furnaces cost a bit more to operate than gas furnaces, as electricity is a more expensive fuel type than natural gas. However, electric furnaces can also operate in many more areas. Natural gas furnaces, by comparison, can only operate where a natural gas line is available.
Gas furnaces are the most common of the furnace types. They run on natural gas, which produces a very high heat output relative to the amount burned. The burner assembly combusts natural gas to generate heat, which is directed into the air being circulated. While natural gas is a better fuel source than electricity for energy efficiency, it does depend on the availability of natural gas in your area. We provide comprehensive gas furnace services, including oil to gas conversions.
