The majority of heating systems have a heat production system (a heat pump, a boiler, etc.) and a distribution system that distributes the heat: for example, radiators or underfloor heating. Some systems, such as masonry heaters or baseboards, combine these two functions. It is important to know that there are many possible combinations between the means of production and distribution of heat. The opinion of a heating engineer is strongly recommended because it will allow you to find the ideal solution. However, central heating systems have many advantages. It can also be interesting to create a combination of heat sources with the central system and a heat pump, for example. This combination is effective and has many advantages. Before embarking on the heating combinations, it is better to know the systems concerned. So, first of all, here is a better description of the electric furnace, a central heating system.
Forced air electric furnace
The forced-air electric furnace is a heat generator that heats the air through electrical resistances. Then the air is sucked inside the house through a network of ducts and a fan, hidden in the ceilings and partitions. The electric oven is an efficient, clean and safe heating system. Simply adjust the thermostat so that the electric oven radiates heat to all rooms in the building. No wasted time, no wasted energy, nothing but comfort! The electric oven produces a comfortable and well-distributed heat. In addition, the electric oven is safe, and its energy is the cleanest on the Quebec market. Do you want to improve the air quality of your home? Thanks to its high-performance variable-speed filters, the state-of-the-art electric oven prevents the dispersion of dust and other allergens.
Result: your home is healthier and the ambient air which is purified promotes the maintenance of good health.
In addition, the initial investment is low. The initial cost of your electric furnace will be lower than most other heating systems on the market. You will save money right from the purchase. In addition to being an economical heating solution, the electric oven has other advantages that tip the balance in its favour:
- It is silent and odorless; that is, you won’t even notice it’s on!
- It does not emit harmful particles for the environment; this therefore means that this system has ecological particularities.
- It does not require a chimney;
- Does not require (or very little) maintenance;
- It adapts easily to existing ventilation ducts;
- Reduces the level of humidity;
- Its installation is easy (regardless of the layout of your home).
- Better energy efficiency
- low maintenance
Additionally, the world is becoming greener and homeowners are moving towards a green mindset. Electric ovens are a great example of an eco-friendly heating system, as they can be connected to solar panels and can be converted into a renewable energy source.
This is not possible when working with furnaces that run on oil or gas. It is therefore a big plus when working with an electric oven.
