Gas and Electric Furnace Installation and Replacement

One of the reasons to always allow trained service technicians to install a furnace is that a furnace can only work as expected if it’s correctly sized for a home. This is true for both gas and electric furnaces. In most cases, you won’t have a difficult time choosing between these two: a gas furnace is usually the right choice for a home that has a gas main, and an electric furnace is a viable choice for an electric-only home.

Electric furnaces have the drawback of costing more to operate because electricity is a more expensive energy source than natural gas. But electric furnaces cost less to install initially and often last longer than gas furnaces. Some homeowners prefer the lower safety hazards of electric furnaces. Gas furnaces, however, are not unsafe if they receive routine maintenance and timely repairs.

Repair and Regular Maintenance for Furnaces

Furnaces usually need to have repairs at some point during their service lives. A professional must handle this job. A gas furnace is dangerous to tamper with for anyone who doesn’t have a license, the proper tools, and the extensive training necessary to work with a natural gas appliance. But an electric furnace is also beyond the capabilities of an amateur. If you have a furnace in your house, please let our technicians take care of the repairs. We’ll keep you warm and safe.

We recommend all our customers sign up for our Performance Promise Maintenance Program so their furnace receives quality annual inspections and tune-ups. This will stop most repairs, increase safe operation, and lower utility bills. It’s also the best way to see that a furnace lasts for as many years as possible.
