The Benefits of an Electric Furnace

There are a number of benefits owning and using an electric furnace can offer your home:

  • Clean energy: You won’t need any kind of fossil fuel for your electric furnace, so if using a clean kind of energy is important to your household, an electric furnace may be the right choice for you.
  • High AFUE rating: It isn’t unusual for an electric furnace to have an AFUE rating of 100% because electric furnaces do not lose any energy to combustion byproducts.
  • Lower initial costs: The initial costs of using an electric furnace can be quite a bit lower than that of a gas furnace.
  • Longer lifespan: The average lifespan of an electric furnace is 20–30 years, while the average lifespan of a gas furnace is 15 years.

Types of Repairs Electric Furnaces Experience

There are some overlapping repairs between gas and electric furnaces, but there are also repairs that are specific to electric furnaces.

Here are a couple of repairs our technicians see specifically with electric furnaces:

  • Malfunctioning or broken heating element: the heating element in your electric furnace is comprised of multiple, tightly wound metal coils that are layered over each other. Over time, the coils and wiring can wear, resulting in some or all of the coils not heating. Sometimes the element can be fixed, but many times the element will need to be replaced in order to keep your furnace operational.
  • Issues with electrical sequencer: the electrical sequencer in your electric furnace turns one or more of the coils on and off in a sequence so that all the coils don’t heat at once and overwhelm the electrical circuit. A faulty sequencer can prevent your furnace from operating, so it will require replacement.
