It may seem an unusual question when you consider just how many people have them and you might assume that they have gas furnaces because that was what was installed in the property when they bought it. You’d be surprised just how many people make a conscious decision to have a gas furnace in their home, even if there was a different system previously installed.
Instant heat – the air temperature can change in an instant thanks to unpredictable weather, and around springtime or autumn, those changes may not register because you have your gas furnace switched off for the summer. Within just a few minutes you can have your gas furnace fired up and warm air flowing out of all the ducts in your home, which is exactly the type of home heating you want.
Cost-effective and available – many, many homes have access to natural gas which, when combined with its reduced cost to use for heating when compared to propane gas, oil or electricity, makes it an obvious decision to make with regard to the installation of a gas furnace.
Gas furnaces are highly efficient – forced air HVAC systems with a gas furnace are now so efficient that a target of 95% efficiency is becoming the norm. It is good to know that the money you pay for your gas goes towards providing heat in your home, not running the system or heating outside through exhaust fumes.
Gas furnaces heat your home fast – one of the greatest joys of a gas furnace is the speed at which it generates heat, which is a lot faster than an electric heating system. Not only that, but with a forced air HVAC system, you can heat the whole home in no time at all, not just one room.
The eco-friendliest fossil fuel – natural gas is the cleanest of all fossil fuels to burn, so if what is happening to the world around you matters, you can make a difference through the way you heat your home.
