5 Pros of a High Efficiency Forced Air System
Forced air heaters and furnaces are a way to heat your home by burning gas, oil, or propane. By using return ducts, it takes air from your home, heats it, and delivers the air back into your home via supply ducts. These are one of the most popular types of home heating system in the country. Here at North Shore Home Energy, we can tell you what’s so great about a forced air system.
Here are five reasons to consider installing a high efficiency forced air system:
Low operating cost
Although they may have higher installation costs than other systems, their operating cost is much lower. Forced air furnaces are highly efficient, with efficiency rates generally in the 90% range. In addition, if you properly maintain them, these furnaces can last over two decades and are cheap to fix.
High air quality
A major benefit of forced air systems is how they can condition your home’s air in a variety of ways. Not only can you filter your home’s air, but you can also install whole-home humidification systems or air cleaners to clean the air as it passes through the system.
Most heating systems, like electric ones, can take a good while to get your home heated up. Meanwhile, furnaces have much quicker start times and can provide home-wide comfort in just a matter of minutes.
You may be aware of some of the dangers of furnaces. If not properly vented, carbon monoxide and other harmful gasses can get into your home and pose serious health risks. Fortunately, our furnaces have multiple safety switches that help prevent fires and toxic fumes from getting into your home. Even so, you’ll want to install CO detectors in your home if you get a furnace.
Compatible with duct cooling systems
If you have a central AC system, the forced air system can work with it to provide year-round comfort. Both systems can make use of the same ductwork to keep your home comfortable.
