Kinds of Furnaces

Fuel source is typically the first thing to think about when deciding on a furnace for your home, as fuel source limits the options available. For example, furnaces can run on natural gas, oil, or electricity, some of which may be more abundant or limited in your particular area, so you're going to want to pick the right fuel type that is easiest for you to use, replenish, and so on. As for the most efficient of these options, gas tends to be the most popular, but requires a natural gas supply line or some other means of access to the fuel.

This is not to say that other fuel types are not energy efficient at all, as this is simply not true. Electric furnaces remain quite energy efficient, and as electricity is readily available for most customers, this is an easy fuel source to use. However, electricity tends to be the most expensive of the fuel options, though there are areas where electricity costs are relatively low.

Price v. Efficiency

While there are furnaces on the market that are extremely fuel efficient (some gas furnaces are almost 98% fuel efficient!), the downside of such efficiency is the immediate cost of investment– very efficient furnaces have a high initial price. It can become increasingly expensive to heat large spaces or large homes with such high-efficiency systems, though the systems are saving you money on energy bills in the long-term.

Strictly speaking, however, unless you intend to make frequent use of your furnace, having a super energy efficient model isn't entirely necessary. There's a balance to strike between high efficiency and monthly savings vs. initial cost, with the size of your home being taken into account, as well as the frequency of its use. One of our technicians at C & C Heating & Air Conditioning can help you weigh the benefits of all the options.
