Types Of Furnaces
There are many different types of furnaces out there. The most common furnace types are gas furnaces, electric furnaces, propane furnaces, and oil furnaces. Each type of furnace has its benefits and drawbacks, but homeowners must understand their options to make the best decision for their space.
Natural gas furnaces are some of the most common heating applications in cities and neighborhoods in Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati. If you currently have an old gas furnace, you will want to replace it with a new gas furnace. While older furnaces that use natural gas are unlikely to have a high efficiency rating, the efficiency ratings of new gas furnaces are much higher. The popularity of gas furnaces is apparent, as nearly half of the country relies on them to produce heat and keep their house comfortable.
Many neighborhoods do not have access to natural gas. Instead of a high efficiency gas furnace, many homeowners keep their homes warm by utilizing electric furnaces known as air handlers. Electric furnaces cost nearly the same as gas furnaces, and require about the same amount of work to install. A reputable contractor like Logan Services, can help you keep your home warm with one of these systems. Electric furnaces have very high efficiency rates, but the initial cost difference is only so helpful, as electricity is more expensive to utilize than gas. You may notice your energy bills are higher with an electric furnace. Additionally, electric heat is known to be ‘less warm’ than the heat provided by a gas, propane, or oil-fuel furnace.
When natural gas is unavailable at your home, a propane furnace is an excellent option to consider. Propane furnaces are great to utilize in locations where gas energy sources are less accessible, and provide a very comfortable heat. If you don’t currently have a propane tank at your home, there will be an additional cost to purchase that tank, as well as the cost to fill the tank as needed. A propane furnace pairs nicely with a heat pump, as it can help you conserve propane costs in the milder seasons.
Oil furnaces are popular in the northeastern United States. While these furnaces have a slightly lower efficiency rating than gas furnaces, the upfront furnace cost is about the same. They produce a very warm and comfortable heat, but operating the system usually comes at a higher cost due to the frequent price fluctuations of oil. Also, because oil furnaces burn ‘dirtier’ than gas or electric furnaces, they tend to have a shorter lifespan if not properly maintained.
Factors to Consider in Furnace Replacement
When you are ready to buy a new electric or gas furnace, you may quickly realize that the models have changed significantly. The latest equipment will probably have higher efficiency and output than your current model. There may also be some new features of which you’re unfamiliar. We know that you might need some help deciding on the right equipment for your heating needs.
Selecting a furnace calls for careful consideration of these concerns and furnace features:
- Square footage
- Amount of heating you will need, based on the home style, insulation, and climate
- Furnace size, which can be crucial for effective heating
- Fuel type — natural gas, propane, or electric
- Budget for the equipment and installation
- Annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE rating), which is the ratio of heat produced to energy/fuel consumed
- Motor speed — single, multi, or variable
We’re the furnace dealer that encourages our customers to remember that bigger is not always better. Choosing cheaper furnace models simply to save money may not be the best long-term investment. We are always ready to help Ohio homeowners select an ideal home furnace.
