The Benefits of a Furnace
Although furnaces have a long history behind them, they have never lost their popularity as heating systems. Here are some of the advantages that furnaces offer which have kept them competitive with other options for home comfort:
- Heating power: Few systems can match a furnace for pure heating output. Even homes with poor insulation that allow heat to easily escape through the walls can receive sufficient warmth from a furnace to keep people comfortable.
- Speed: Furnaces heat up the air rapidly, and it takes only a short time for them to heat a home to the temperature set on the thermostat.
- Flexibility: There is literally a furnace for every situation. The most common type of furnace uses natural gas for fuel. But if a gas line is not available, an electric furnace is always an option. Furnaces come in a variety of sizes and configurations, making them a great fit for most homes. If your house already has ductwork for an AC, a furnace will easily integrate to use the same set of ducts.
- Efficiency: Furnaces burn fuel efficiently, particularly gas furnaces, making them one of the less expensive heating systems to run.
The most popular type of furnace runs on natural gas piped from a municipal supply. Natural gas is an inexpensive fuel and it burns cleanly, resulting in few emissions and little energy waste. Gas furnaces can achieve high levels of heating power, and if they receive regular maintenance and care they will pose minimal health risk. If you already use natural gas power in your home, you should give a gas furnace serious consideration.
Not all homes have connections to gas lines, but they do have electrical power—and that means an electric furnace is always an option. Electric furnaces work by resistance heating: coils inside the cabinet heat up as current runs through them, and these hot coils directly raise the temperature of the air. Electric furnaces are effective, safe, and can last for many years.
