If you prefer an electric furnace they’re similar to Gas forced-air furnaces except they produce heat with electric heating elements. Electric furnaces work just like a huge hair dryer pulling air in through a cold-air return and pushing it out with a heat exchanger. Heat exchangers heat the air and a blower pushes the heated air throughout the rooms in your home using ductwork, registers, and returns that were installed when the electric furnace was installed.
Monthly maintenance for electric furnaces in Denver is fairly simple, depending on what kind of filter you use. If you’re using a disposable filter you simply need to replace it once a month, and clean the furnace filter if you’re using an electrostatic air filter; these are permanent and washable.
