Electric vs. Gas Furnace Installation
Are you thinking about switching to a different type of heating system or replacing your current furnace with a new model? It’s important to be educated and consider the different advantages that each type of furnace offers. We can sit down with you to discuss your budget, your heating needs, and how gas and electric furnaces operate. Compared to older models of heating equipment, newer furnaces are safer, easier to maintain, and significantly more energy-efficient.
A couple important factors to consider include when replacing your furnace include:
- Electric furnaces: If you do not want or have natural gas, this is a great option. Also, electric furnaces are known for their durability and energy savings.
- Gas furnaces: If you have poor insulation, a gas furnace may be a great choice. Gas furnaces are also less expensive to run.

Why Does My Furnace Smell?
We’re all familiar with the burning dust smell furnaces make when they are turned on for the first time in several months. But if you’re smelling something off that doesn’t go away after a few minutes, it’s likely that your furnace needs to be serviced. Here are some common furnace smells and what they mean:
A mildewy smell may mean that fungi is growing in an area of moisture buildup. Your furnace or ductwork may need to be cleaned.
This could potentially be a serious problem with a cracked heat exchanger or an overheated motor - turn off your furnace and call for service as soon as possible.
A sulfur smell means you have a natural gas leak. Immediately turn off your furnace, move to an area of fresh air, and call your local gas company.
