Gas furnaces continue to be the heating system of choice for residential real estate developers and homeowners alike.

Maintenance/Reliability – Gas furnaces are fairly inexpensive to maintain and historically require only minor repairs because they rarely break down. A gas furnace should save you time and money on furnace repairs and/or replacements.
Lower Monthly Utility Bills – Using a gas furnace can reduce your utility bill and save you money every month. Gas is the cheapest, cleanest and most efficient fossil fuel available. Gas is cheaper than other fuels and you burn less than other fuels to reach your desired temperature. It just makes good common sense to burn less of a cheaper fuel in order to save money.
Extended Lifespan – A properly maintained gas furnace should provide approximately 20 years of reliable service.
Increased Efficiency – Gas is the most efficient fossil fuel that you can burn. Today’s gas furnaces can achieve efficiency levels as high as 98 percent and produces more per amount burned than any other fuel source.
Eco-Friendly – Gas is the cleanest of all fossil fuels and emits extremely low levels of ground level smog pollutants and contaminants. In addition, the emission of greenhouse gas is far lower for gas than it is for other fossil fuels.
A gas powered furnace heats the air faster and to a higher temperature than other fuel sources, so it uses less energy and is less expensive, but the benefits don’t stop with your monthly utility bill.
Using gas instead of an alternative fuel source is less expensive, but it’s also helps preserve our natural resources. Gas heating systems burn more efficiently and have fewer emissions than other fuels, so they have less of an impact on our environment.
Advances in fuel technology has also help widen the gap between gas and other fuel sources. Automated zone heating systems and pilot-less ignition systems etc…allow today’s homeowners to customize their heating systems to meet their personal needs. Combine all the benefits listed above with the fact that gas furnaces have almost twice the lifespan of other furnaces and it’s easy to see why homeowners continue to rank gas furnaces and heating systems as their top choice to fulfill all of their residential heating needs.
If you didn’t tune-up or maintain your car on a regular basis, the odds of it breaking down needing significant repair work and the same is true with any system in your home including your furnace.
The expected lifespan of an average gas furnace ranges from 10-12 years, but regular tune-ups and proper maintenance can extend the useful life of your furnace for an additional 5-10 years with no significant loss of performance.
Furnaces aren’t showcased in homes like a shiny new Sub-Zero refrigerator or a gleaming state-of-the-art Viking range. Furnaces are always tucked away in a closet or hidden in garage, yet they continue to provide dependable service day after day and year after year.
