Great question! We recommend having a furnace, particularly a gas furnace, installed in your home! See, these systems offer a number of unique benefits, and below, we have outlined some of them for you. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more (and yes, remember to call our team when you’re looking for a gas furnace in Rockford, MI.)
How Gas Furnaces Work
Let’s start with the basics: these furnaces use an ignition system to ignite natural gas. This combustion process sends heat to the heat exchanger. A blower fan then pushes cool air over the heat exchanger. Once the air is heated, it is sent throughout every inch of your home via your ducts, keeping you warm and cozy!
Gas furnaces are definitely the most popular home heating system on the market today! Here’s why:
Inexpensive and Accessible
Natural gas is relatively inexpensive, costing significantly less than other gas options (like propane) or electricity. Plus, natural gas is widely available—many homes already have direct access to natural gas lines.
In the last few decades, there have been significant improvements in forced-air system efficiency. Today, gas furnaces are over 95% efficient, which is super important! Here’s why: when your furnace has an efficiency rating of 95%, it means that 95% of the fuel being used becomes heat for your home—you are getting exactly what you pay for with very minimal heat loss or wasted fuel.
Gas furnaces provide fast heat for your home, which is especially pleasant during the winter months. When you turn your system on, you can expect to be warm and cozy in no time. In fact, gas furnaces heat your home faster than most electric furnaces.
Natural gas is the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels, meaning Mother Earth will definitely thank you when you make the switch to one of these systems!
Ready? Call in a Professional
If you are interested in having a natural gas furnace installed in your home, do not hesitate to call in a certified HVAC professional for help. Only a certified pro will be able to match you with the system that best suits your unique comfort and budget needs and install it accordingly.
And yes, there may be plenty of amateurs willing to provide similar services for a fairly cheap price, but remember, sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run. Therefore, it’s always best to call in a professional—see, when it comes to your comfort and your budget, you don’t want to take any risks!
