Frequently Asked Questions About Furnaces

Do electric furnaces run constantly?


They shouldn’t run constantly. If your electric furnace is running all the time, there may be a problem with your blower or thermostat. 

What are the advantages of an electric furnace?

Electric furnaces are nearly silent and slightly more durable than gas furnaces. They will last longer than most gas furnaces, and when electricity prices are lower than gas prices, they’re less expensive to operate.

Do electric furnaces require an outside vent?

Because there is no combustion, electric furnaces do not require an outside vent, flue, or chimney. This makes them easy to install in apartments, condos, and homes.

Can I repair my electric furnace myself?

While we recommend cleaning your electric furnace, we strongly recommend allowing a professional HVAC technician to perform thorough inspections, maintenance, and repairs.

Because of the risk of electrocution and fire, it’s best to let a trained professional do any tinkering or tightening within your electric furnace cabinet.
