When having a new furnace installed, there are several things to consider. The first step is deciding which type of furnace to install. Typically, we recommend replacing your old furnace with a new one that uses the same type of fuel. You should also take into consideration that there may be new options on the market that weren’t available when you purchased your current system.
Electric furnaces are a popular option for Pittsburgh homes. These models tend to be less expensive than gas models and also require less maintenance. Electric furnaces are also quieter than their gas counterparts and have a 100% efficiency rate.
Almost half of the homes in the US are heated using natural gas. When you choose a newer gas furnace model, you can expect an efficiency rate of up to 98%. While the initial cost for a gas furnace is typically higher than other types, the low cost of natural gas helps to balance it out.
You will need to check to see if you have n existing gas line installed; if not, you will need to factor in the cost of a gas line installation.
A propane furnace requires you to store the propane at your home to fuel the unit. They perform similarly to gas furnaces, both using gas to heat the air in the home. Unfortunately, it can be inconvenient to store and refill your own fuel supply through the winter, making them a rare choice for Pittsburgh homeowners.
Oil furnaces were developed prior to gas furnaces but do not offer the same energy efficiency. Additionally, like propane units, you will need to store the fuel for your oil furnace in large tanks on your property, making them another rare choice among homeowners in the Pittsburgh area.
Gas or electric furnaces are what we typically recommend to Pittsburgh homeowners due to their convenience and energy efficiency. We can work with you to help you choose the best furnace for your home and your budget.
Our team of highly trained technicians will treat your home like their own, completing a safe and skilled installation of the most energy efficient heating systems to keep you warm all winter long.
