If your oil furnace is heating your home less efficiently than you want it to, it may be time for an upgrade. Given the great advances in furnace manufacturing technology, old oil furnaces, even those made only 20 years ago, can potentially offer as little as half the heat production of more modern models. Installing a gas furnace can reduce the environmental impact of your home’s heating systems and help you get greater comfort for less. Call Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning today and ask about how you can install a natural gas furnace in your Washington, DC home—301-990-7970.
Benefits of Gas Furnaces
Gas furnaces have lower costs
Gas burns much more cleanly (and therefore less expensively) than oil. Most oil furnaces require yearly service to remove accumulated soot and sulfur deposits—gas furnaces save you money by eliminating these requirements. Not only do they leave no soot, but also no oily odor. Gas furnaces are generally much more reliable and less likely to break down than oil or electric furnaces.
In addition to lower maintenance costs, gas furnaces always have lower fuel costs than oil furnaces. While natural gas is still subject to price hikes, experts predict that it will never reach the price levels of oil.
Gas furnaces have higher efficiency
Gas furnaces are the most efficient type of furnace for your Washington, DC home. All gas furnaces on the market today are required to have an AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of at least 78 percent—and most carry even higher ratings than that. At Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning, we carry high efficiency furnaces with AFUE ratings as high as 90 percent range!
Given the way that oil burns, an oil furnace will never be able to reach these high levels of efficiency. Electric furnaces also tend to be inefficient, losing heat quickly and costing you more. Electric furnaces will not work when the power goes out.
Gas furnaces have lower emissions
Gas furnaces produce far lower quantities of emissions than oil furnaces, which means they can operate in much less space. While oil furnaces need flues at least 18 inches wide to release harmful gasses, natural gas furnaces only need 8-inch pipes to do their job.
If you already have a gas furnace in your Washington, DC home, be sure to check when it was installed. Gas furnaces made 10 years ago or longer may not be up to today’s efficiency standards and could very well be costing you money you don’t need to be wasting. If you live in Washington DC, State and are ready to install your new gas furnace, call Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning today!
