Natural Gas or Electric Heaters
Most homes in the country today benefit from natural gas to heat their homes. Some homes are also using electricity as an alternative.
While gas is typically cheaper to heat than electric, it might now always be the case if natural gas isn’t readily available in some areas.
Yet, a major drawback to heating your home with natural gas is that it’s actually gas. This means that there is a potential risk of exposure to carbon monoxide poisoning if your installation isn’t performed by an experienced professional. Electric heaters can be safer because carbon monoxide poisoning isn’t a risk.
And finally, while electric heat has the benefit of being directional specific and makes it easier to heat larger areas, the type of heat that comes from gas can be less dry. A lot of people prefer this kind of heat and find it to be more comforting than electric.
Both electric and natural heaters have their pros and cons. However, the kind of system that works best for you home is one that offers the best quality, is professionally installed, and will offer you comfort that lasts all winter long.
Variable-speed Furnaces, Two-stage Furnaces, and Single-stage Furnaces
How does a variable-speed furnace benefit me?
Variable speed furnaces have many benefits. Just like your car, it is able to speed up or slow down whenever needed instead of running at full speed all the time. Variable speed furnaces provide the ultimate in energy savings and noise reduction. Variable speed furnaces are an important choice when you are looking to pari your system with indoor air quality (IAQ) products as they allow the furnace an energy efficient way to circulate the air in your home through the air cleaning products.
How does a two-stage furnace work?
Two-stage heating means the furnace has two levels of heat output: high for cold winter days and low for milder days. Since the low setting is adequate to meet household heating demands 80% of the time, a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and provides more even heat distribution.
Is a single-stage furnace efficient?
While not as efficient as a variable-speed or two-stage furnace, today’s modern heating units have come a long way. Replacing your old furnace will definitely help reduce overall heating and cooling costs as well as repairs and service. The single-stage furnace is an “all-on” or “all-off” unit and is great for lower budgets, rental units, or property flips that need to be sold quickly.
