Heat Pump vs. Furnace

If our technicians have assessed your existing heating unit and have determined that a replacement is necessary, it’s important that you as the homeowner understand what type of unit will best benefit you and your home.  The two main options to choose from would be either a heat pump or a gas furnace.

Pros & Cons of a Heat Pump

Heat pumps are ideal for smaller homes in moderate climates.  Most heat pumps are electric and are more cost efficient when compared to a furnace.  Heat pumps are also extremely quiet in comparison to furnaces.  They do not make as much noise.

However, in colder conditions, a heat pump would not suffice.  Also, the heat pump requires both an inside and outside installation.

Pros & Cons of a Furnace

Gas furnaces have been used for decades to warm homes.  The lifespan of the gas furnace is one of the main benefits.  A furnace can potentially run on an average of 15 years.   When compared to a heat pump, a gas furnace also requires less maintenance.  A gas furnace has fewer mechanical parts, meaning fewer things to break down or malfunction.  

However, the products of gas combustion can result in poor indoor air quality in the home and the gas furnace has more safety concerns if not properly maintained.
