Top Quality Atlanta Furnaces
Unlike a heat pump, a furnace is self contained. That is, it doesn't rely on the presence of outdoor heat to warm your home. So if you ever find yourself in the midst of one of Georgia's harsher winters, you won't have to fret about the presence of enough warm outdoor air for warming your home. Just flip on the furnace, and whether it's 30 degrees, 10 degrees, or negative 20 degrees out, your home will be nice and toasty.
Also, a furnace is much cheaper to install than a heat pump - about $500 to $1,000 cheaper, in fact. So if you're the kind of homeowner who wants the immediate gratification of a relatively inexpensive installation along with the long-term gratification of a heating system you can rely on in any weather, then a furnace is the perfect choice for you!
Is It Always More Economical Than A Heat Pump?
That depends on the fuel you have access to. If you plan to use propane to fuel your furnace, you will be paying about TWICE as much for fuel as you would for other heating devices. However, if you have access to natural gas, you'll be SAVING money since natural gas is cheaper than the electricity it takes to operate a heat pump. So is a furnace more economical than a heat pump? That depends on the kind of fuel you can operate your furnace with. But if you have access to inexpensive natural gas, then the answer is a definite "yes." You'd be enjoying reliable heat without paying a fortune in that case!
Furnaces Are Efficient
With a gas furnace, you'll get exactly what you're paying for: heat. And just about every bit of it. Gas furnaces convert about 97 percent of the gas that they consume into heat. Thus, with a furnace, you can be sure that you're literally getting exactly what you're paying for. If you're paying for gas to be turned into heat, you want to enjoy as much of the heat that that gas produces as you can. Don't settle for losing the heat that you're paying for. Get a furnace instead.
And should you decide that a furnace is right for you, then just call up the Atlanta heating experts at Southern Home Performance. We can get your furnace installed quickly and affordably, so you can be enjoying excellent, affordable heat in no time!
