Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between gas and electric furnaces?
- Gas furnaces provide quick, strong heat and are usually cheaper to operate because gas is less expensive than electricity.
- Electric furnaces are more energy-efficient and eco-friendly because they don’t rely on fuel combustion. They provide a gentler heat and have a lower installation cost.
Our team can help you determine whether a gas- or electric-powered furnace is best for your home and budget.
What Are AFUE ratings?
AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. It’s the energy-efficiency metric for furnaces that represents the percentage of heat produced for every dollar of fuel it uses.
81% AFUE is the minimum efficiency requirement for gas furnaces, but 90% AFUE and higher is ideal. All electric furnaces have a 100% AFUE rating.
Why does my furnace smell bad?
If your furnace emits a strange odor, the type of odor can indicate the cause:
- Smoke odors are likely caused by an issue with your furnace’s electrical connections and wiring. It’s a fire hazard, so turn off your furnace and call a professional for a repair.
- Burning plastic or rubber odors could signal that one or several components of your furnace are damaged or overheating. Shut off the furnace immediately and schedule a repair.
- Rotten egg odors indicate a natural gas leak. You should leave your home immediately, call your utility company to shut off the gas, and call your home service team to repair the gas line and furnace.
- Heating oil odors are signs that your furnace likely needs to be cleaned. This can be addressed by scheduling a routine inspection and maintenance.
