Furnace Replacement Options to Consider

Here are Furnace Replacement Options to Think About
A Gas furnace is quite simply a popular option for most homes in the Valley. Why? That’s because natural gas furnaces offer a clean, affordable, safe and energy efficient way to heat your home…and who doesn’t like to save money on their monthly heating bill? Gas furnaces can also heat your home faster than an electric furnace.
An electric furnace is somewhat less energy efficient than a gas furnace simply because it can consume quite a large amount of electricity to heat a home, particularly if it is in frequent use. They can also be slightly less expensive to purchase than gas furnaces. An electric furnace also does not emit carbon monoxide because it does not use fossil fuels. Keep in mind that, in general, an electric furnace usually has more moving parts which need to be serviced regularly and therefore can increase your maintenance costs over time.
