Why Use a Furnace to Heat My Home?

 

HVAC-technicianWhen it comes to living comfortably in Nevada, a lot of people will immediately think of their air conditioning systems. This is understandable, and your AC most definitely gets more time on the playing field than your central air conditioner does. Don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security when it comes to your home heating system, though. You’re still going to run into temperatures that are more than chilly enough to cause discomfort.

If you’re having a new home put up, or if you’re thinking that your heater is now ready for a replacement, you should definitely consider the use of a furnace to heat your home. Furnaces in Las Vegas are very popular, and it doesn’t take an HVAC expert to see why. Today, we want to talk about some of the benefits that you’ll enjoy as a result of using a furnace to heat your home. Feel free to contact Goettl Air Conditioning Las Vegas with any questions.

Shared Ductwork

One thing is for certain in most homes throughout our area: a central AC system is in use. That means that there is already ductwork installed in those homes, and a furnace can share that ductwork with the central air conditioning system. A furnace uses electricity or natural gas combustion to generate heat, and then distributes that heat throughout the house via a system of ductwork. If you already use ductwork in the summer, it only makes sense to continue using it on those days and nights when you need to heat your home, too.

Upfront Cost

Furnaces are among the more affordable home heating systems out there. Now,  we’re not saying that furnaces are cheaply made, nor are we saying that you should always opt for the cheapest option when it comes to as vital a system as your heater. What we are saying, however, is that cost is definitely one of the deciding factors for most homeowners looking to install or replace a new heating system.

Fuel Options

Like we mentioned above, you can use natural gas, propane, or electricity in order to generate heat with your furnace. Natural gas is preferred by many, as it is piped directly to the property and the appliances using it. Propane is also available, but must be delivered and stored on-site. While electricity is more expensive than gas,  typically, we also don’t use our heaters as much as they do in, say, Vermont or Minnesota. If you don’t have gas hookups or wish to avoid storing propane on-site, using an electric furnace is certainly worth considering.

And the Bottom Line: Comfort!

When temperatures drop, you want a heating system that will work to maintain your comfort swiftly and effectively. A furnace will do the job for certain—provided that it is properly installed and serviced, of course! Allow the technicians on our team to guarantee that this is the case.

G-O-E-T-T-L it’ll keep you cool, but it’s hard to spell.
