What is a furnace?
A gas forcedair heating system goes into action when the thermostat tells it that the room temperature has dropped below a preset comfort level.
The thermostat sends a lowvoltage electrical signal to a relay in the furnace, which signals a valve to open and deliver natural gas to the burners and for the blower to turn on.
The furnace’s pilot light or electronic ignition lights the burner inside the combustion chamber. This creates heat in the furnace’s heat exchanger, a metal chamber around which the moving air flows.
Once warmed, the air is pushed out to the rooms through duct work.
Natural gas is the fuel of choice for homeowners. It is a clean, affordable, safe and efficient energy choice. Switching to natural gas means lower energy bills and increased value when you sell your house, plus has many other benefits.
Converting to natural gas will save you energy and money, dramatically reduce your heating and water heating costs. A modern natural gas heating system gives you virtually “instant heat.” With electricity, it takes longer for those old resistance coils to warm up.
Why Switch Now?
Reduce your heating costs by 50% to 70% depending on furnace efficiency and the energy from which you are switching.
New gas furnaces can be up to 98% efficient so your future heating bills will be as low as possible. With current energy costs, it is more important than ever to use all energy wisely, natural gas, electricity, propane and oil.
Comfort and Reliability
The result of your newly installed gas or propane furnace is a warm and cozy home – quickly. In addition, many gas appliances will continue to work in the event of a power outage.
Generating more heat from the same amount of fuel, a condensing boiler will save you money on your heating bills when directly compared to a noncondensing boiler. If you replace an old oil boiler with an Energy Star rated highefficiency condensing boiler and full set of heating controls, you can dramatically reduce your home’s carbon dioxide emissions and save up to 30% on your heating costs.
