Thinking about replacing your existing furnace? Are you considering installing a new, more efficient furnace? If so, here are a few things to consider prior to your purchase. First, keeping the inside of your home warm and comfortable in the winter is important. However, even more vital is the safety of your family. With a high-efficiency natural gas furnace, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Central heating systems that use natural gas are safe and energy-efficient with advantages over other types of heating systems.
How do forced air systems work?
A forced air central heating system fueled by natural gas is the most common type of furnace available. Cool air enters the furnace and a heat exchanger warms the air. Once the air is warm the blower or fan moves the air through your home’s ductwork.
Advantages of natural gas forced air furnaces:
Energy Efficiency – In extreme cold, the last thing you want to do is wait for a room, or an entire home, to heat up. However, forced air furnaces provide heat quickly, and use less energy than an electric furnace or a heat pump.
Cost savings – There are upfront costs associated with installing a new central heating system. In the long run natural gas forced air furnaces can save you money. That is because they are more efficient at heating and cost less to operate than systems that use electricity or heated water.
