What Furnace Should I Buy?
There are several different types of furnaces you can install, including:
- Oil furnaces – Oil furnaces are typically installed in places that don’t have access to natural gas lines. They have an average AFUE of about 38 percent.
- Gas furnaces – Gas furnaces are known for their ability to heat your home quickly and efficiently. Some natural gas furnaces have an AFUE of up to 97 percent! In many areas, the cost to heat your home with natural gas is cheaper than with electric.
- Electric furnaces – In general, electric furnaces are cheaper to install than oil or gas furnaces. This is because they don’t require ductwork or fuel storage. However, electric furnaces can cost more to operate, and will also not heat your home in the event of a power failure.
When selecting a furnace, the most cost efficient option will not be the same for every home. You should take a variety of factors into account when selecting a new furnace, including the installation costs as well as local fuel prices.
