Electric Forced Air Furnace

Very popular prior to the increase in energy costs, these systems are relatively inexpensive to install and maintain, but have a high operating cost. We often find electric forced air furnaces which have not been maintained for up to 10 years. In the process of removing the service panel, we discover that one of the electric coils or the fan belt has deteriorated, it requires replacement, and is likely to fail at the least opportune time during the upcoming heating season. Service for such furnaces is recommended every three to five years.
