I’ve been thinking for a really long time about buying a new furnace system for our home.
Last week I went into the HVAC supply company downtown and I looked at different kinds of furnaces.
The kind of heating system that really caught my eye was a high efficiency furnace. I did a little bit of research about the different kinds of high efficiency furnaces that are out there on the market, and I think I probably would be happiest with an electric furnace system. I do like the whole idea of the energy savings that comes along with a gas furnace, not to mention how a gas furnace is more eco friendly. I just don’t like the fact that a gas furnace has to use, well, gas! I’ve always been a little bit afraid of gas furnaces, to be honest. When I was a kid, there was a home explosion a couple of streets over from our house. I read in the newspaper that the reason that the house exploded was because of a gas leak. Ever since then, the whole idea of heating my home with gas has not really appealed to me. I guess it was a truly traumatic event. Now, even though I know that there have been many improvements to the safety and security of gas heaters and gas furnaces, it’s still stuck in my head that if I have a gas furnace, my house will be blown to smithereens! So apparently, thanks to these crazy thoughts in my head, I’m going to be forced to purchase a high efficiency electric furnace instead of a gas one.
