Gas Furnaces vs. Electric Furnaces
Gas furnaces are cheaper to run and heat faster than electric ones. Those icy Charlotte winters might make all the difference when choosing the right furnace. Gas furnaces also burn cleaner, with fuel readily available from various suppliers. People with allergies have problems with the dry heat emitted by electric furnaces and do better when using a gas furnace.
Why a Gas Furnace Is Right for You
Charlotte winters come with unpredictable power outages, and it’s not always clear how long it will take for the power to come back. That alone might be enough reason to make a gas furnace the right choice for your home. Add the lower cost of operation, cleaner energy, and allergy-friendly process compared to electric furnaces, and you’ll understand why a gas furnace might be right for you.
Acosta Heating, Cooling & Electrical provides expert gas furnace installation, repair, replacement, and maintenance services for all brands. With over 50 years of experience serving homeowners in the Charlotte community, we can help you make the right choice for your home.
Signs Your Gas Furnace Needs Repair
Gas furnaces sometimes display symptoms of growing problems deserving attention before they become significant headaches.
- Strange noises and rattling from your gas furnace could indicate various problems. Some issues, like heat exchanger leaks, could be significant. Such leaks can lead to carbon monoxide concerns.
- The life span of a typical gas furnace typically runs 10 to 15 years. If your system has reached that age, it’s a good idea to have it inspected.
- Insufficient heat could result from a clogged filter, a malfunctioning fan, or another part experiencing problems.
- Gas furnaces producing cold air may have a problem with parts, such as burners or thermocouples.

Is it OK if I run my furnace without a filter?
The furnace filter is an essential component of your furnace system. It prevents contaminants from entering your heating system and contributes to the smooth functioning of the furnace. Running the furnace without a filter could increase your energy bills, lower the air quality of your home, and increase the likelihood of avoidable repairs.
What are the benefits of having a furnace?
There are three primary benefits of having a furnace. Furnaces improve the quality of the air in your home. They are more affordable than boilers. Furnaces are also one of the safest heating systems you can choose.
