As one of your home’s most important systems, your furnace is under a great deal of stress. It’s responsible for keeping your family warm and safe while our frigid Bloomington winters rage outside. It also helps remove contaminants, such as smoke, pet hair and dander, chemicals, viruses, and bacteria from the air your family breathes. All the while, we expect our furnaces to perform their duties with as little trouble as possible. Then, we ignore them for months on end when the weather warms up and expect them to still be ready to go when winter comes back to the area.

Stretching Your Furnace to Its Limits

All those demands take a major toll on your home heating system. They cause the components to wear out and can lead to drastic declines in efficiency and effectiveness. In the end, your furnace will completely wear out. Then, you’ll need to replace it with a new one. If you suspect the time for furnace replacement may be drawing near, having help from the local furnace experts can be essential for getting the right new model to meet your family’s needs. That’s where Mister Quik enters the picture.

Exploring the Different Types of Furnaces

Several types of furnaces are available to today’s homeowners. Each one has its list of benefits and disadvantages. Not all of them are right for your home, but there’s a good chance the perfect furnace is out there waiting for you to find it. Read on to learn more about some of the most popular alternatives on the market to help you decide on a new model for your home. 

Gas Furnaces

Gas furnaces have been on the market for more than a century now, and they’ll probably still be popular for the next hundred years. They’re known for their effectiveness and consistent heating, which makes them particularly suited to our cold winters. Though they cost more to purchase than some other options, they cost less to operate because they generally lose less of the heat they generate than certain other types of furnaces.

Electric Furnaces

Electric furnaces are also popular in our area. Many homeowners choose them because of their lower upfront costs. Having said that, some people who currently own electric furnaces say they just can’t keep up with the cold on the most miserable days of winter here in our neck of the woods. They can certainly provide effective heating, but they often lose more heat than gas furnaces as they send warm air through their ductwork. 

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Mini-split systems are becoming more popular with each passing year. They’re great for homes that aren’t already equipped with ductwork or home additions that haven’t been tied into the existing ductwork. Of course, they’re also becoming more common in homes with ductwork. If your ducts are in disrepair or you’re tired of traditional central heating systems, you could certainly replace your existing furnace with a mini-split system.
