Let’s talk about your furnace installation choices. Gas furnaces may be the most common these days in the Joliet area, but electric furnaces have their benefits too.
Gas-powered heating systems are considered more fuel-efficient than their electric counterparts. This is because natural gas is a more affordable fuel source. That said, a gas furnace is actually a bit more expensive upfront to install since there are so many factors included in their installation, such as a hookup to your city’s main gas line.
Electric furnaces tend to be more affordable to install upfront but cost a bit more month-to-month on your energy bills. Some homeowners often choose the electric furnace due to its safety. This isn’t to say that gas furnaces are inherently dangerous–they’re not, especially with routine furnace maintenance. But electric systems don’t deal with combustion fuel at all, making them "safer" by default.
You always want to work with a trained and experienced professional for your furnace replacement. This is especially true if it’s a gas furnace you’re replacing. Our EPA-certified technicians are skilled at carefully removing your old furnace without damaging any connections or components–like your ductwork or electrical wiring.
Then, we make sure your new furnace is properly sized for your home. An overpowered furnace can have just as detrimental an effect on your efficiency and comfort as an underpowered furnace. This is because when a furnace isn’t small enough, it reaches the temperature on your thermostat too quickly, then starts doing something called short-cycling. This is when it turns on and off rapidly. This process can cause further problems for your furnace as it exacerbates wear and tear, causing parts to wear out faster and need replacement sooner.
