Most Ohio homes utilize a furnace for indoor heating. In addition to being highly efficient, furnaces also generate relatively little noise and have a long life span. Furnaces also offer flexibility when constructing or remodeling a home no matter the style of construction. We service every type of furnace in homes in Athens, Lancaster, and surrounding areas. Our menu of furnace services include:
- Furnace inspection
- New installations
The gas furnace is the most common type of furnace. Gas furnaces are powered by natural gas that is piped in through a municipal line. Jets ignite to generate hot combustion gas, which warms the air. Fans circulate the warmed air throughout your home’s ducts.
Homes that are not powered by gas often have an electric furnace. Because electric furnaces are inexpensive and compact in size, they are a favorable fit for small spaces. These furnaces are powered by electric elements that heat up to warm the air. A major drawback to purchasing an electric furnace is electric units are less efficient than gas furnaces.
Oil furnaces are more common in the northeastern United States. These furnaces convert oil to heat and are an alternative for homes that do not have access to natural gas. Gas furnaces are generally more efficient than oil furnaces.
A more expensive option, modulating furnaces offer benefits that justify the added expense. Modulating furnaces adjust the amount of oil they burn until they reach the thermostat’s targeted temperature. Instead of shutting off, modulating furnaces run continuously and consumer energy at a lower level. Therefore, these furnaces are more efficient than other types.
