Furnaces in Sacramento
Furnaces in Sacramento, CA
The oldest type of home heating system is the fireplace. But the furnace is not far behind it in age. The original furnaces were essentially fireplaces that could spread heat farther than a single space. The modern furnace is a sophisticated device capable of creating high levels of heat and distributing it evenly around a home. Furnaces are flexible and can run from a variety of energy sources, which is one of the reasons they remain the most common type of heater found in homes across the country, from places with harsh winters to regions with milder climates like ours.
Any HVAC contractor for Sacramento, CA must understand furnace maintenance. But only a great HVAC contractor can offer the level of furnace maintenance service that we provide. Crystal Blue Plumbing, Heating & Air has been in business since 1976 providing repairs, installations, and maintenance for household furnaces. “Customer Service the Way It Used to Be!”—That’s our motto, and we stand by it.
Choosing a Furnace: Gas vs. Electric
There are many types of furnaces using different energy sources, such as liquid propane and even wood pellets. But most furnaces either run from natural gas or electricity. Our technicians work with both. If you’re planning on a new furnace installation, you’ll need to choose between the two:
- An electric furnace is a good option for a home that doesn’t have a gas connection. Electric furnaces have a number of other advantages as well, such as longer lifespans and fewer safety concerns.
- In homes with natural gas connections, the gas furnace is usually the superior choice. Natural gas is a less expensive energy source than electricity, and gas furnaces provide more powerful heating.
Our HVAC experts will assist you with making the right decision for a new furnace, and they’ll make sure the installation is done so your new heater will work for years without trouble.
