If a furnace repair technician has told you that you need to replace your current furnace you have different options to choose from. One of these options is a natural gas furnace. There are many reasons why you should choose this type, three of which are listed below. You can then get your new furnace installed to keep your home warm this winter.
Is High Quality
A natural gas furnace is high quality and will work well no matter what type of home you have. If you currently have an HVAC system you can also use the natural gas furnace along with this system. You can also use the furnace along with a water heater or anything else in your home that uses heat.
Another reason this type of furnace is higher quality is you do not have to worry about the furnace breaking down as much. For one, natural gas is always available. An electric furnace has more parts and components and many things can go wrong in the electrical system.
Two Types Available
There are two types of natural gas furnaces available: conventional and condensing.
A condensing natural gas furnace burns gas through one heat exchanger. The excess heat, which is also known as heat vapor, escapes through the walls. This vapor will also escape out of a chimney if you have one in your home.
A condensing gas furnace uses a second heat exchanger. This second exchanger collects the left-over vapor instead of letting the vapor escape out of your home. This makes this type of gas furnace more energy efficient. This is because it takes much less energy consumption to house the vapor in the heat exchanger than to push the vapor out of your home.
Can Save you Money and is Eco-Friendly
Natural gas produces more heat when compared to an electrical system, which allows the furnace to not have to run as long to maintain the temperature in your home. Your furnace not running as often means it will last much longer when compared to other types of furnaces.
This not only saves you money, but you can also help the environment. Natural gas does not produce as much waste materials when compared to other types of fossil fuels. This helps deeps the environment cleaner
