Electric forced-air HVAC systems are typically installed in mobile homes and residences where cheaper natural gas or propane are not available. While this type of system is often more expensive to run, there are many different factors affecting its running costs. And, unlike their gas-powered cousins, electric systems can accommodate air conditioning installations using their existing blower motors and ductwork. This makes them a clear winner for homes located in areas with excessively hot summer temperatures.
Your furnace is a key part of your home's HVAC system. Its importance is magnified during the winter months, but homeowners are often inadequately informed about this part of the HVAC system.
How Can Corrosion Harm Your Furnace?
Rust on the furnace can be a serious problem as it has the ability to degrade the performance of the furnace as well as contribute to sizable safety risks. For example, corrosion on one of the supply lines or valves can contribute to gas or oil leaks.
