Types of Furnace You Can Install in Your Home
The three types of furnaces you will come across are:
- Gas Furnaces
- Electric Furnaces
- Oil Furnaces
Gas Furnaces are the most common type of furnaces as they are a perfect choice for weather like the Fraser Valley experiences. The frequent harsh cold weather throughout the season requires a system that will be cost effective and lasts long with lower maintenance costs. Gas furnaces may have high upfront costs but the monthly operating costs are low that it offsets the overall expense. Plus gas furnaces are extremely efficient, which means your home gets warm faster and in less time.
Some additional costs to consider would be the furnace installation services cost, replacing cost, and maintenance cost. Electric Furnaces are generally energy efficient even though they could become relatively expensive to operate due to electricity costs. However, electric furnaces have the lowest upfront costs in comparison to Gas & Oil. Since these furnaces don’t require special vents and pipes, they are simpler to maintain and last up to 10 -15 years.
Oil Furnaces are not that common in Abbotsford or the Fraser Valley but they are also a good choice for areas with harsh cold weather. There is an additional cost for the fuel storage tank that one needs to consider plus space. The monthly operating costs are relatively lower than electric because you fill oil tanks quarterly or semi-annually.
When thinking of furnace installation services, we understand that it can get overwhelming to consider all options and which one to choose that fits perfectly with your own home’s requirements. We are here to help you decide which furnace best fits your needs and budget. Sullivan Plumbing & Heating also provides furnace repair services in case we see that it’s better to repair your old furnace rather than buying a new one.
