A furnace is a heating system that generates warmth by burning fuel (such as natural gas, oil, or propane) or through electric heating elements. It then distributes the heated air throughout your home via ductwork.
Furnaces are available in various types, including gas furnaces, oil furnaces, and electric furnaces. Each type has its own advantages and considerations.
Regular furnace maintenance is recommended to ensure optimal performance, safety, and efficiency. We advise scheduling an annual maintenance service to catch potential issues and keep your system running smoothly.
Signs of a malfunctioning furnace include uneven heating, unusual noises, frequent cycling on and off, higher energy bills, and reduced indoor air quality. If you notice any of these signs, it’s time for professional assistance.
Choosing the right size furnace depends on factors like your home’s square footage, insulation, and climate. Our experts can perform a heat load calculation to recommend the appropriate furnace size.
Yes, modern furnaces are designed to be energy-efficient, with high Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings. High-efficiency furnaces can provide significant energy savings compared to older models.
Furnaces are designed primarily for heating, but they can be paired with air conditioning systems to provide both heating and cooling for year-round comfort.
With proper maintenance, a well-maintained furnace can last around 15 to 20 years or even longer. Regular maintenance helps prolong its lifespan and efficiency.
A variable-speed blower in a furnace offers improved comfort and energy efficiency. It can adjust its speed to match the heating needs, resulting in consistent temperatures and reduced energy consumption.
