When choosing the right mobile home furnace for your new home, there are many different factors to consider. In order to find the best fit for your home’s heating needs, be sure to read below.
Gas vs. Electric
When deciding between different furnaces for your mobile home, you will often have the option between gas and electric furnace options. Gas furnaces are often more expensive to purchase and less expensive to run since gas is cheaper than electricity. However, because gas furnaces emit low levels of carbon monoxide, it is important for all gas furnace owners to ensure that their system is being maintained regularly and is working properly.
Electric furnaces are often cheaper to purchase but more expensive to run. Electric units are quick to install and are usually easy to repair. Although electric units are usually more efficient in heating your home, gas units heat your home more quickly and cheaply.
Ductless vs. Ducted
Another choice to make when deciding on the right mobile home furnace is whether or not you would prefer a ductless or ducted furnace system. Using a ductless system may save you space in your mobile home, and money if your mobile home does not currently have ducts installed. Ductless systems are generally very easy to install and run efficiently. However, a ductless unit may have difficulty heating multiple rooms without installing multiple units.
A ducted system would be a great fit if your mobile home already has ducts installed. Ducted systems generally take longer to install, especially if you do not currently have ducts installed in your home. Ducted systems, however, are usually more efficient at heating a larger space.
Size Really Matters
Lastly, when choosing the right furnace for your new mobile home, it is important to measure the space you have available. Also, whether you have a single mobile home, a double, or anything in between will help to determine your heating and furnace needs.
