What is the difference between HVAC and a furnace?

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. This system’s main responsibility is controlling the temperature in your home. This can include air conditioners, furnaces, heat pumps, and other home comfort controls.

Furnace is a large box that uses oil or gas to air and water in your home on a daily basis. Furnace is part of your heat system, working alongside an HVAC system, or it can function as a standalone heater itself.

How often should I replace my furnace?

We want to ensure your home stays warm and comfortable during the cold, winter months in Illinois. Furnace replacement in Champaign homes is recommended every 15-20 years. The lifespan of an older furnace can be dependent on the type of fuel being used. Temperature fluctuations and loud, strange noises coming from the unit could also indicate it’s time for a replacement.

Our comprehensive furnace installation solutions

Edelman provides quality installation and furnace replacement to both commercial and residential clients in Champaign, by ensuring that the customer, employees, and company all win. Don’t hesitate to call our professional furnace installers if you need:

Gas furnace installation

Gas furnaces create heat energy by combusting fuel. Similar to cars, the combustion produces exhaust and your gas furnace will have a heat exchanger. It comes with the following components: thermostat, gas burner, ignition switch, heat exchanger, blower flan and a flue. Edelman is well-equipped to install gas furnaces for a wide variety of homes and businesses.

Electric furnace installation

Electric furnaces are environmentally friendly because the electricity to heat a home can be sourced from hydroelectric dams, wind farms, and even solar panels. They tend to have a higher cost than gas furnaces, because gas is very cheap and plentiful. In any case, Edelman can provide electric furnace installation and furnace replacement to suit the needs of your home or business.

Propane furnace installations

A propane furnace is a forced air furnace that uses propane in lieu of oil or natural gas. These are ideal when other fuels are limited, too pricey, or have no way of being delivered. They are perfect in rural areas where power outages can occur, because they can operate efficiently and put out heat on their own. Edelman’s furnace installers are certified to handle propane furnaces installations for any home, in urban and rural sites.
