Natural Gas – The most common way to heat your home is with a forced-air system that distributes warm air through ducts in your home. New forced-air furnaces are only available in high-efficiency AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating. The main difference between the new high efficient furnaces compared to older mid efficient furnaces is the purchase price, operating costs, and venting.
Wood – Whether you need heat for a home that is off the grid or are looking to reduce the use of fossil fuels with an alternative source of heating, a wood furnace can provide the perfect solution. This distinct option relies on the world’s oldest heating fuel to provide clean and reliable heat for homes, businesses and even industrial complexes.
Electric – When a electric furnace delivers heated air blown by a fan through a network of ducts, it is called a forced-air system. Because the fan forces air into each room in the house, this type of system does not depend on natural convection to distribute heated air evenly throughout your house. Electric forced-air systems come in a wide range of capacities – generally from 10 kilowatts to 50 kilowatts. The heating elements, circulation fan, air filter, and control devices are contained in a compact cabinet. Electricity can be used as the sole heating source or in combination with other sources in a home heating system.
