Furnace Installation

On average, a furnace can last 15 to 30 years. Getting the furnace to the 30-year mark requires providing that furnace with regular maintenance and prompt repairs throughout its lifetime.

Once the best furnace is found, our experienced technicians can provide professional furnace installation in Columbus, IN.

Electric Furnaces

Electric furnaces are a pretty easy option for many homeowners. These systems run completely on electricity and do not utilize combustible gas to heat the home. This eliminates many of the safety issues that can be found with gas furnaces.

Electric furnaces also run a lot quieter than gas furnaces. Without combustible gas igniting, there is no boom or thump when the system turns on. It simply sends warm air blowing throughout the home. These systems are also a lot easier to install. This means that installation is usually cheaper. An electric furnace also requires less maintenance than a gas furnace and can last up to 30 years.

This may sound like the perfect option for any home. However, there are some disadvantages to having an electric furnace as well. For example, electric furnaces are often more expensive to run. Since they only use electricity, they can use a lot and greatly increase the electric bill every month.

Electric furnaces do not heat a home as quickly as the gas furnace does. Its efficiency is much lower than that of a gas furnace. This means that it will cost even more because it needs to work harder and longer to provide the same heating power as a gas furnace.

Gas Furnaces

Gas furnaces require a connection to a gas source. This makes the installation process more complex that can increase the cost. Natural gas is dangerous and can pose serious risks to the home and its occupants.

This makes it vitally important for a professional to install a gas furnace to ensure proper connections to the gas without leaks. Proper seals and venting are also necessary to prevent the risk of carbon monoxide leaks.

These things may cause some concern for homeowners, however, there are some great benefits to owning a gas furnace over an electric one. The first is the fact that it can heat the home quicker, more thoroughly, and efficiently. This can ensure a warm and toasty evening no matter how low the temperatures drop.

Running a gas furnace is also less expensive. Although it does use both electricity and gas to heat the home, it uses a lot less than the electric furnace does and provides more efficient heating for the home. This means the monthly energy bills will be much lower than an electric unit.

Furnace Installation Warranty

Most furnaces come with a warranty to protect the homeowner from faults in the manufacturing process. These are usually offered by the manufacturer and require proper maintenance on the system during its lifetime. Our team can provide regular maintenance for any furnace to stay well within the warranty.

This is why we offer a 10-year warranty on our labor. We even offer a 1-year warranty on any parts we install so you can rest assured that your furnace will be installed properly.
