Frequently Asked Questions
AFUE ratings are the metric used to compare the energy efficiency of furnaces.
Electric furnaces have an AFUE rating of 100% because there’s no combustion. Gas furnaces must have an AFUE of at least 81%, but 90% or more is ideal.
Electric furnaces are energy-efficient and great options for well-insulated homes. Natural gas furnaces are less efficient but more powerful and cheaper to run.
Our team can help you determine which type of furnace is right for your home.
Although it’s normal for your furnace to make louder sounds as it turns on and off, the following sounds could indicate you need a repair:
- Booming or banging usually indicates a problem with the ignition of a gas furnace.
- Buzzing can be a sign of a loose component or debris within your system.
- Popping could indicate a problem with your air ducts.
- Scraping and grinding may indicate a problem with your ball bearings or the blower wheel.
- Shrieking may be a sign of a worn belt or another problem with the motor.
- Whistling sounds could be as simple as a dirty air filter.
- Burning odor: This is common when you turn on your furnace for the first time in a while due to accumulated dust within the system. It's usually nothing to worry about.
- Smokey odor: The presence of smoke can indicate that your furnace is not being properly vented. If you notice smoke or the smell of smoke coming from your furnace, turn it off, turn off the gas supply line, and call a professional.
- Musty odor: This can indicate the presence of mold or mildew in your system or ductwork.
- Chemical odor: This could be a sign of a cracked heat exchanger or other significant damage to your system and should not be ignored as it can lead to fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.
