Choosing your heating system
A furnace is a significant investment—and not nearly as much fun as picking out a new car! But unlike a sleek car, the right furnace can pay for itself over time through energy savings. How much time depends on the type of system you choose.
How a furnace works
The search for the right furnace can be confusing, and we know that it’s important to understand how furnaces work so you can make an informed decision. Your furnace heats by pulling cool, indoor air into the furnace and heating it before redistributing that warmed air back into rooms through heating ducts. Most furnaces today rely on only natural gas, oil, and electricity, and they each have differences in operation.
Natural gas furnace
With a natural gas, forced air heating system, gas is mixed with air and ignited inside the furnace’s combustion chamber. An air blower pulls cool air from the rooms through air ducts in the furnace. The air is heated when it passes over a heat exchanger connected to the combustion chamber. Warm air flows back into rooms through heating ducts.
An oil furnace atomizes its fuel, or turns it into a fine mist, and then burns it. Air absorbs the heat in the exchanger and a blower sends the warm air back into the room through heating ducts.
This type of furnace uses a blower to force air directly onto electrically-heated coils. The warm air is distributed through heat ducts. These units can be used with heat pumps or central air conditioners.
