Electric Furnaces in Springfield MO

When deciding on a new heating system for a new home, or when replacing an old system, you need to decide if an electric or gas furnace would be the best for your home.  Learning about each type of furnace and its pros and cons will make your decision easier.

Cost Over Time

The cost of the electricity to operate an electric furnace is more expensive than a gas furnace, but the operating costs are spread out over the lifespan of the appliance and are not up front costs.

Lifespan

The lifespan of an electric furnace is approximately between 18 and 20 years. You will not need to purchase a replacement unit for many years and in addition, electric models are very quiet and durable. In addition, the installation is usually much quicker, which also translates to a lower initial investment price.

Maintenance

Be sure you have your furnace maintained before you use it the first time of the winter season. Jon Wayne Heating and Air offers a checkup as part of our maintenance plan (link here) to make sure your furnace is operating properly.

Considerations

  • Size: The size of your home will determine which size unit you will need to heat your home.
  • Efficiency vs Price: You want to balance cost and efficiency. Remember that a small upfront price may cost you more in the long run if the system isn’t efficient.
  • Zoning System: Based on where your thermometer is located, you might consider a system that can divide your home into zones to more evenly heat different areas of your home.
