Furnaces are known for their durability, effectiveness, and reliability. And while gas furnaces are perhaps a more popular choice, an electric furnace can be a cost-effective alternative, especially if natural gas is not an option in your home. If you need a new furnace for your home, we can take care of this for you. Air Services Unlimited provides comprehensive electric furnace services, including replacement, maintenance, repair, and new installation. Give us a call today!
Electric furnaces are durable and reliable, and today’s models can be very efficient. Any electric furnace sold in the United States today must have an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of over 78%, which is much higher than the efficiency ratings of furnaces sold years ago. This means that your energy costs should drop significantly when replacing an older model, especially if your furnace is several decades old.
Usually, an electric furnace is only installed if the homeowner does not have access to a natural gas line. Electricity tends to cost more to use than natural gas does, which is why gas heating systems are often preferred. However, electric furnace installation costs less initially, and this is often a more pressing concern for homeowners.
Electric furnace installation offers one other benefit to the homeowner as well. Although today’s gas furnaces are known to run safely, there is risk associated with any gas heating system. With an electric furnace, you’ll never have to worry about any major safety issues such as a gas or carbon monoxide leak.
Any furnace installation or service—gas or electric—should always be completed by a trained professional. Repairing or installing a gas furnace on your own could present some safety issues. But servicing an electric furnace may appear to carry less risk. However, attempting any furnace service on your own can lead to trouble.
For example, installing a furnace involves careful sizing, and a unit that is the wrong size may use too much energy, encounter problems starting up, and can ultimately fail before its time. Many electric furnace repair needs are preventable if you schedule regular maintenance and make sure that only professionals install or service your system. Be sure to call a technician at the first sign of a heating issue, even if it seems minor, as prompt heating repair can keep the issue from becoming any larger.
