Why Choose a Gas Furnace?

Winters here in Connecticut sure can be chilly, which is why we think it’s incredibly important that you have a heating system that’s going to be able to keep you and your family warm and toasty all season long. Of course, the best way to do that is with a furnace, particularly a gas furnace!


Well, you see, gas furnaces offer a number of great benefits, and below, we have listed some of them for you. All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more (oh, and remember to schedule your furnace services in Hamden, CT with our team!)

First Off, How Do Gas Furnaces Work?

Gas furnaces are by far the most popular heating systems on the market today — simply because they work great!  These furnaces use an ignition system to ignite natural gas. This combustion process sends heat to the heat exchanger. A blower fan then pushes cool air over the heat exchanger. Once the air is heated, it is sent throughout every inch of your home via your ducts, keeping you warm and cozy! 

What are the Benefits?

Like we mentioned above, gas furnaces offer a number of awesome benefits.

Inexpensive and Accessible

Natural gas is relatively inexpensive, costing significantly less than other gas options (like propane) or electricity. Plus, natural gas is widely available — many homes already have direct access to natural gas lines. 


In the last few decades, there have been significant improvements in forced-air system efficiency. Today, gas furnaces are over 95% efficient, which is super important! Here’s why: when your furnace has an efficiency rating of 95%, it means that 95% of the fuel being used becomes heat for your home — you are getting exactly what you pay for with very minimal heat loss or wasted fuel.


Gas furnaces provide fast heat for your home, which is especially pleasant during the winter months. When you turn your system on, you can expect to be warm and cozy in no time. In fact, gas furnaces heat your home faster than most electric furnaces. 


Natural gas is the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels. This boosts efficiency whilst decreasing the number of emissions produced. The planet will thank you when you choose natural gas over other gas types.
