Types of Furnaces & Longevity

There are several types of furnaces available, each with their own unique benefits and drawbacks. The most common types that you should consider for your home or business include gas, electric, and oil.

Gas Furnaces

These are the most popular type of furnace and use natural gas to heat your home. They are efficient and reliable, and they typically last about 15-20 years.

Electric Furnaces

These use electricity to heat your home and are less expensive than gas furnaces. However, they are not as efficient and can have a shorter lifespan of 10-15 years.

Oil Furnaces

These use oil as a fuel source and are less common than gas and electric furnaces. They are not as efficient as gas furnaces and typically have a lifespan of around 15-20 years.
