11 Pros of Electric Furnaces
Electric furnaces coils and electricity to generate warmth for your residential or commercial property. The warm air is distributed through the ducts by a blower (fan).
Electric furnaces …
- Are easier to maintain. (Regular professional HVAC maintenance – fall and spring – is important, but you can help by replacing filters and keeping the unit clean and dust-free.)
- Are easier to repair. (But with proper maintenance, your furnace will last longer and need fewer repairs.)
- Are more durable than gas.
- Are quieter than gas.
- Use components that are usually less expensive.
- Eliminate the need for a gas line or oil or propane delivery.
- Have more safety advantages. (Gas furnaces can release carbon monoxide and are more at-risk for combustion/explosion.)
- Use parts that are easier to install.
- Are usually less expensive to purchase new than gas.
- Tend to last longer than gas (20+ years vs. gas furnaces’ 10+ years).
- Use electricity, which is available everywhere in the U.S., while gas is not. Electricity prices tend to be more stable than other energy sources/fuel.
4 Cons of Electric Furnaces
Electric furnaces …
- Are more complex, mechanically. You need a licensed HVAC professional to work with electricity for safety and knowledge.
- Heat more slowly than gas. (It takes a bit longer for you to reach your warmth comfort zone.)
- May be cheaper to buy, install, maintain, and repair, but cost more to run.
- Tend to be less “versatile” when upgrading or adding components. Again, your local HVAC company can explain value-add vs. expense when considering modifications, such as adding a heat pump.
