Furnace Heating Systems
How a Furnace Heating System Works
Furnaces have been used for home heating for decades. A furnace heating system, (not to be confused with a “boiler heating system”) uses different types of fuels (natural gas, propane, electricity, fuel oil) to heat air.
This warm air is then distributed throughout your home through a ventilation duct system. Each type of furnace fuel type has its own advantages and disadvantages, based on costs and efficiency ratings.

System Installation and Replacement
The age and the preventive maintenance and service history of your furnace will be the determining factors of when a new furnace installation will have to occur.
The “type” of furnace you are replacing will have a huge impact on the final installation costs due to the complexity of the different components that make up the heating system.
When you do find yourself in need of a furnace replacement, you will want to be assured you are dealing with an HVAC company that is experienced and has the expertise to complete the project in a timely manner to create the least disruption to your home possible.
