There are times when the dark nights get a little too cold for our comfort-especially here in Naperville. It doesn’t even have to be winter for your nights to be such a freezing pain. Maybe the winds are blowing a little too much; a storm has settled on top of your home; or maybe it’s that time again for snowflakes to start falling. Whatever the case, nobody likes cold feet before they go to bed. If you’re one of the people who can’t live in the freezing cold, well it’s about time to get a furnace installed in your house.Of course, you might be asking yourself: Why get a heater? I already have a fireplace, why should I get a furnace over a classic crackling fire? We at Comfort Plus Chicago have the answer for you! Here are 10 benefits you must know when getting a furnace installed in your house.
1. NO MORE FREEZING NIGHTS
Say goodbye to those cold feet of yours because no longer will you have to live through another freezing night with a heater! Yeah, sure, you can do that with a fireplace as well, but you know what a fireplace can’t do? Heat up the ENTIRETY of your house. Furnaces distribute warm air throughout every room of your house via ducts on the floor, walls, and ceiling.
2. THEY ARE AFFORDABLE
Did you ever wonder why furnaces are the most common heating system amongst households in America? That’s because of their super affordable price. You’ll only need a small sum of money, around $2000 to $3500, to have a brand new furnace installed at your place. How about a boiler or a fireplace? Well, boilers typically cost around $2500 to $4000 while getting a fireplace built costs anywhere around $2000 to $5500.
3. INDOOR AIR BENEFITS FROM FURNACES
Furnaces today are equipped with air humidification technology, removing contaminants in the air and improving quality. Imagine: you’re in the dead of winter enjoying a nice book while having a cup of coffee. You take a whiff and instantly fresh air as good as spring enters your nose. Now doesn’t that sound-smell-lovely?
4. HEATERS ARE VERY COMFORTABLE
In addition to humidity, gas heat brings warm air throughout your home at a very comfortable 100+ degrees. It’s a little bit warmer than your body temperature which delivers that cozy, comfortable feeling.
5. ONE OF THE SAFEST HEATING SYSTEMS OF YOUR HOME
If maintained properly, the furnace can be the safest way to heat your home up. Yeah, furnaces can still run into some problems every now and then, but that’s where Comfort Plus Chicago comes in! Call us the moment you notice something wrong with your furnace. With a little bit of maintenance and help from us, furnaces can be the be-all-end-all when it comes to house heating.
6. EFFICIENCY AT ITS FINEST
Gas furnaces are built, not just to keep you warm, but to look out for your bills as well. Your heating costs can be reduced drastically by 50% to 70% once you start using a furnace. Nobody wants their bills skyrocketing out of control.
7. LIVES A VERY LONG LIFE
Furnaces, given the right care, can live for a long time. Depending on the efficiency of the furnace, it can range from 15-25 years of service. Some even reach up to 40 years! Once you invest in a heater, you’ll no longer have to worry about getting a new means of heating up your house every few years.
8. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
With the amount of global crises happening on an almost daily basis, we need to do all we can to help save our beloved planet. What better way to help out the environment than by using an environmentally friendly gas furnace? You’ll be helping out the environment by simply turning on the heater at night!
9. IT’S A HOME SPECTACLE
If you’re ever planning on selling the house then a heater will do you wonders.
