Stay Warm with a Gas Furnace Heating your Eastern NC Home or Business
Need a new HVAC system? When it comes to warmth, comfort and energy efficiency, a gas furnace is a great choice for many of our customers in Goldsboro, Greenville, Smithfield and throughout Eastern NC. Jackson & Sons Heating and Air Conditioning has installed gas furnaces in homes and businesses for over four decades, and we offer reputable, reliable brands that are both energy efficient and cost effective.
A complete furnace installation costs between $4,820 and $9,350 on average nationwide. This covers the cost of the furnace itself as well as labor charges, ductwork, removal and disposal of the old furnace, as well as any additional installation fees or improvements.
Although gas-powered furnaces are the most common, electric and oil furnaces are also available.
At the very least once a year, if not every spring and fall, experts advise having your gas furnace serviced and maintained. Of course, there are more advantages to having your furnace serviced annually than just avoiding being without heat during the chilly winter months.
In comparison to electric furnaces, gas furnaces and heaters require less energy to heat the same amount of space, and they can also heat homes more quickly. Electric furnaces, on the other hand, require more time to heat up because their heat source is a network of coils. Electric heaters can take longer to reach homes in areas with chilly winters.
Sometimes it does make sense to purchase an electric heater though. For example, it might be more sensible to purchase a less expensive electric furnace if you live in a smaller home in a warmer climate because you won't use it as frequently and can thereby save money on energy over time.
Though gas furnaces have been around for a while, but today’s furnaces are more efficient than ever before! One of the most important considerations when choosing a gas furnace is the annual fuel efficiency (AFUE) rating. The higher the AFUE rating, the less fuel needed to heat your space. If you are replacing an old furnace with a new gas furnace with a high AFUE rating, you could save as up to 50% in operating costs each year!
