When to Replace a Furnace
Age and cost of repairs are the primary deciding factors on whether to repair your furnace or purchase a new furnace. If your current furnace is 12 to 15 years old and the cost of a repair will be more than one-third of the cost of replacement, it is better to go with a furnace upgrade. Your new unit will have improved energy-efficiency while providing the warmth your family deserves.
Gas Furnaces vs Electric Furnaces
The difference between an electric and gas furnace are many. The cost of a gas model is usually higher and the installation process more complicated. An electric furnace is cheaper but requires more maintenance and expensive fixes. Electric is the only option if there are no gas lines and you do not want to incur the costs of adding lines. Both gas and electric furnaces have their distinct advantages. You can find high efficiency furnace options using either energy source that will save you money during periods of heavy use.
A few benefits of a gas furnace are:
- Better, overall heat distribution
- Faster heating with extremely low temperatures
- 2 to 3 times cheaper than electric heating
- Less costly repair
A few advantages of an electric furnace are:
- Lower initial furnace unit cost
- Consistent temperature control
- Zero carbon monoxide worry
New Furnace Installation
An electric unit can get installed and considered within a day. A gas unit takes quite a bit longer. It is a complicated process that might require adding or changing existing gas lines. A gas unit should be fully operational within a few days of start. Our technicians will make sure it is running smoothly at the end of the job.
