Furnaces remain the most popular choice for home heating due to their high efficiency, low operating noise, long lifespans, compatibility, and more. Furnaces have great flexibility—there’s almost always a furnace to fit a home.
Also referred to as a forced air system, the furnace acts as the core of your home’s central air system, used for creating warm air as well as participating in the cooling process.
Furnaces can use natural gas or electricity to heat your home. After the air is heated, it enters your living spaces through the web of ductwork. You will usually find the furnace in attics, closets, or crawlspaces.
Before you choose a new furnace for your home, make sure you speak with the experts at Florida Air Care. There are many factors to take into consideration when installing a new furnace.
To help you know which types of furnaces are available to you, learn more about the different types of furnace.
A furnace powered by clean-burning natural gas is very affordable as compared to other energy sources because right now natural gas costs users less than electricity. In addition, your up-front out of pocket costs are lower as, typically, gas furnaces are less expensive to purchase than electric furnaces. If your home is already configured for natural gas, then it can be pumped directly into your house—you won’t ever run out and don’t need to wait for or schedule a delivery.
Generally speaking, electric furnaces are more expensive to buy than natural gas furnaces. However, they are very efficient at heating a home and, as such. are a reliable alternative to a natural gas furnace for keeping your home warm without breaking the bank. It’s important to note that not all homes have hookups installed for natural gas heaters and not all areas have natural gas readily available. If your home isn’t already configured for a natural gas furnace, an electric heater is likely the better option for your current home heating needs.
Furnace Installation, Maintenance, and Repair Services
As with your home air conditioning system, it’s important that a trained and certified technician you trust install your home furnace system. Just as with the AC, it’s vital to install a unit that’s correctly sized for your house. A unit that’s too large will continue to cycle on and off, potentially leading to unnecessary wear and tear on the system’s components. A unit that’s too small for the space will have a hard time keeping up with your heating needs and constantly be running, also leading to unnecessary wear on system parts as well as higher energy bills.
Schedule your furnace installation with Florida Air Care to ensure its sized properly and running efficiently.
