Should You Get a Gas or Electric Furnace in Winnipeg?
1. Do I have the electrical capacity for an electric furnace?
2. What is the running cost between a high-efficiency gas furnace and an electric furnace?
An electric furnace is generally less expensive than a gas system, but it's more expensive to operate. These furnaces are also quieter, easier to install and don't require as much maintenance. They should last between 20 and 30 years with the proper care.
A gas furnace uses natural gas and is therefore less expensive to operate. Gas furnaces usually heat your home faster and more efficiently than their electric counterparts, which is very beneficial in the dead of winter. Because these systems emit a low level of carbon monoxide, they must be consistently maintained for safety purposes. Your gas furnace should last anywhere from 10 to 20 years.

240 Volt ECM Series Electric Furnace
A brilliant advancement in furnace technology, the Nortron by Broan ECM Series offers improved operating efficiency, lower overall energy costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions associated with conventional electric power generation.
The superior performance of electronically commutated motors (ECM) is in part due to the motor’s brushless DC design, which ensures greater efficiency over a wide speed range. Its permanent-magnet rotor ensures lower heat losses.
Continuous Operation, Continuous Comfort
Continuous air circulation creates a more comfortable living environment with a more uniform temperature distribution and, when combined with a ventilation system, can dramatically improve indoor air quality.
When operating in continuous fan mode at low speed, an ECM motor offers up to 200% greater efficiency than standard motors. The energy saving benefits of a furnace with an ECM motor are most apparent when the fan is run in continuous mode.
In the past, operating a furnace in continuous mode has meant higher electricity costs. Today, thanks to our new Nortron by Broan ECM Series, you can enjoy the benefits of continuous fan operation with no significant increase, usually a decrease, in utility bills.
