Your HVAC system is made up of a number of parts that all work together to heat or cool your home. Your furnace is one of the main instruments in your HVAC system that work to keep your home warm during those colder months. 

If you’re unsure about where your furnace is located, it’s usually stored close to your water heater. If you don’t know where that is either, check locations such as an utility closet, or your basement, attic, or garage. 

Once you locate your home’s furnace, you can check to see whether it’s electric or gas. This is helpful information to find out when you first move into a new home. If your furnace is gas, then it will likely have a picture of a blue flame by the pilot light. Also, you’ll get periodic gas bills when the local propane company comes by to refill your home’s gas. 

If you’re building a new home or installing a new furnace, you may be wondering whether you should get an electric or a gas furnace. Each of these types of furnaces come with their own pros and cons. For example, while gas furnaces are typically more expensive to install, they are often more cost efficient in the long run. On the other hand, electric furnaces are usually easier to maintain and last about 10 years or so longer than most gas furnaces.

If you notice any unusual smells or sounds coming from your furnace, that’s a sign that you need to have an HVAC professional come out to check it as soon as possible. Some other common signs that your furnace needs repair include uneven and/or low heat supply or a yellow pilot light (which should be blue if all is normal).
