3 Types of Gas Heaters for Your Durham, NC, Home

Natural gas heating has become increasingly popular due to its price advantage over electric heating. Natural gas is also reliable and efficient. It can heat your Durham, North Carolina, home more quickly than an electric system. Gas heaters come in different models and have various features. Common types of gas heaters include condensing and hybrid systems.

Two-Stage Gas Systems

Furnaces like Trane’s S9X2 offer two-stage gas heating. That means you stay comfortable no matter what happens during the heating season. Sometimes winter in the Durham area is mild, or there’s a stretch of nice weather followed by a sudden winter blast. A two-stage gas system offers comfort whether there’s a winter storm or the season is nice and cozy.

Additionally, the S9X2 comfort has a CTM blower that optimizes energy efficiency in warm weather. The two-stage gas heating system means smaller temperature swings and high fuel efficiency, so you benefit from energy savings. You’ll also enjoy quieter operation and a sleek design that makes installation easy.

Condensing Gas Furnaces

Condensing gas furnaces have two heat exchangers. Instead of letting hot gases escape the flue, the second heat exchanger uses energy from the flue gases and uses it to heat your home. This allows you to maximize the amount of heat that you get from your furnace to keep your family comfortable.

Hybrid Systems

A hybrid (or dual fuel) HVAC system has a gas furnace and an electric heat pump. It uses the heat pump to cool your home during the summer and heat it during the winter. When it’s too cold for the heat pump to work efficiently, a hybrid system automatically switches to gas. These systems are more efficient than a heat pump or a gas furnace alone.
