One of the most popular heating systems today is the natural gas furnace. A gas furnace is an extremely efficient option to heat your home—in fact, modern gas furnaces are significantly more efficient than their counterparts of just 10 years ago, oftentimes by as much as 30%. This impressive level of efficiency has the added bonus of saving hundreds of dollars on energy bills throughout heating season compared to oil-based alternatives.
Natural gas furnaces use the combustibility of natural gas to circulate hot air through your home, generally whenever a thermostat signals that room temperature has dropped below a preset comfort level. The furnace uses electronic ignition or a pilot light to heat the furnace’s heat exchanger, a metal chamber around which the moving air flows. This air is then pushed out throughout the house through an internal air duct network, keeping your family comfortable and warm. Our professional team of HVAC technicians are natural gas furnace experts, having installed and repaired gas furnaces of all shapes and sizes for families in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware since 2001.

Advantages of a Natural Gas Furnace
Elite Energy Efficiency
One of the most important figures to note when shopping for a furnace is the efficiency rating, also known as the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). Modern gas furnaces boast ratings between 89-98%, making them the most efficient heating solution for your home on average.
Low Fuel Costs
In addition to their marked superiority in efficiency, natural gas on average is substantially the least expensive home heating option. Natural gas production is centered in the U.S. and Canada, meaning a more consistent supply that isn’t impacted by global politics and demand cycles. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average household using natural gas pays anywhere from $300 to $1,800 less for winter heating than homes using oil, propane, or electric systems.
Clean, Convenient Comfort
As one of the cleanest nonrenewable energy resources, natural gas has a low carbon footprint. Gas heating systems stay relatively clean throughout the heating season, necessitating fewer cleanings during the year. Natural gas also comes with the added bonus of direct delivery to your home through an underground pipeline, meaning you never have to worry about running out.
