The Electric Furnace, a Safe Option to Heat Your Home

Easy and Safe Installation

The electric furnace has two main functions in your home. It is used to heat the house as well as to circulate the air in the ventilation ducts. It is therefore fitted with an engine and a fan to propel air and a combustion chamber for generating heat. A safe heating device, the electric furnace is easy to install. Montreal-based Air Spécialiste Inc. strongly recommends that you have your furnace installed professionally to avoid any risk of breakage or fire.

The Central System: a Winning Combination

Did you know that you could optimize the performance of your heating system by combining your furnace with a heat pump? When you change the temperature by 1 or 2 degrees, the furnace is operated to respond to change. Once the temperature is reached, the heat pump takes over. This allows you to regulate the room temperature more easily, in addition to saving on heating costs.

However, when the outside temperature reaches -15 ° C or less, the electric furnace is the only source of heating.

How does an electric furnace work?

An electric furnace works by converting electrical energy into thermal energy. It generally consists of a heating element, a thermostat and a fan. The thermostat senses the room temperature and sends a signal to the heating element to turn on when the temperature is lower than the desired setting. The heating element, which is usually made of resistance wire, heats up when electricity passes through it, and the fan then circulates the heated air around the room.
