A furnace heats your home using natural gas (only very few furnaces use propane or oil), or electricity.
They force the heated air through the ducts using a fan and out of the vents in your home.
Natural gas furnaces produce heat more cost-effectively, but depending on whether your home is equipped with gas lines, it may be a big decision to install one.
Electric furnaces are another option on the side of cost effective heating and low carbon emissions, and if your home does not have natural gas, it may be a great option
A heat pump is an air conditioning system that can heat your home in the cooler months of the season.
The reason for the name, “heat pump”, is regardless of what time of year, it pumps heat; in the winter, it pumps heat into your home, and in the summer it pumps heat out of your home.
Since a heat pump has the ability to both heat and cool your home, it’s an incredibly efficient system for comfort and affordability.
