If you are looking for a furnace replacement in Meriden, CT, take the time to learn about the different types and features. F.F. Hitchcock Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can walk you through the various options and help you make an informed decision. The four different types of furnaces include propane, natural gas, electric and oil. Propane is often recommended when natural gas and oil is not available since it is easy to store. Natural gas furnaces tend to be the most economical and efficient while oil furnaces tend to have a lower upfront cost. Electric furnaces are more environmentally-friendly, but come with higher installation and operation costs.
Once you’ve narrowed down the type that would best fit your home and needs, consider the types of features that you’d like having. Some furnaces have smart thermostat and technology compatibility, and we can link the furnace with your other home systems during the furnace installation. Other furnaces have built-in diagnostic tools that will alert you when the system needs to be repaired or if there is a drop in efficiency.
