While less common in many homes than gas/oil furnaces or heat pumps, electric furnaces are a great, safe alternative to fuel burning heaters and can serve as a solid backup for geothermal heat pumps. While electric heat pumps tend to have slightly higher costs than the more common heating systems, their low install costs and compact size make them a good supplement to any heating system.
Most of the time, geothermal and air source heat pumps are capable of producing enough heat for your home. However, there will come times when it’s just too cold and your geothermal heat pump needs a little boost. For times like these, an electric furnace is perfect! Electric furnaces don’t require a pilot light and don’t produce any dangerous gases or chemicals, making them much safer than traditional furnaces. Best of all, the upfront costs for electric furnaces are quite low, and there is no complex piping, fuel storage or ductwork to install. Finally, electric furnaces have a lifespan of 20 – 30 years!
