If you own your own home, then by now you know the importance of owning a quality furnace. Especially during the colder winter months, having a furnace that not only functions well, but also functions efficiently, is important. Poor furnaces tend to run up heating bills and quit working at the most inopportune times leaving you and your family stuck in the cold for countless hours until the repairman arrives. To avoid this kind of disaster, you should make sure you own or purchase a quality furnace like those offered by Ducane Furnaces. Ducane has a reputation for offering high-quality, reliable, and energy-efficient home furnaces, so you know you’re buying the best.
For over half a century, Ducane Furnaces has offered its customers a large assortment of both gas and oil furnaces to suit their heating needs. Built with a commitment to quality, Ducane furnaces are carefully and durably constructed using only high-quality long-lasting parts. This helps to ensure that the customer receives many years of efficient and worry-free heating. Dealers like Ducane Furnaces’ customer financing programs because it allows customers to enjoy the benefits of having no down payment and low monthly payments finance their new furnace, while enabling dealers to easily compete in today’s marketplace.

Ducane furnaces are available in either gas furnace or oil furnace styles. Ducane gas furnaces come energy-star certified to be energy efficient, and frequently qualifies the homeowner for local consumer incentives. Further, these Ducane furnaces offer the benefit of multiple airflow configurations, and are easy to set up, install, and service. Their shallow height allows for greater flexibility in application resulting in greater salability and higher profits for dealers.
Ducane oil furnaces offer greater flexibility, allowing the seller to choose the right furnace for the customers needs, creating a more customized experience. With slide-out blower design and easily accessed ports, these Ducane furnaces are simple to clean and maintain. The design offers consistent airflow while dense fiberglass insulation helps to reduce excess noise and heat loss. In general, most oil furnaces, including Ducane furnaces, are expected to last for around 10 years, but with proper care and maintenance, Ducane furnaces can last up to 20 years. Further, all of Ducane’s oil furnaces, once registered, come complete with a 10-year limited warranty on parts, and a limited lifetime warranty on the furnace’s heat exchanger component.
As with any furnace, proper maintenance and servicing will help to keep your Ducane furnace running effectively and efficiently for many years. Oil furnace filters need to be changed every few months, so be sure to have a supply of fresh filters on hand in these cases. For a gas Ducane furnace, dirt is your worst enemy. A dirty gas furnace can significantly decrease the energy efficiency of your furnace and cost you money in fuel and repairs, so it’s best to keep your furnace’s air filter clean. The frequency of filter changes will depend greatly upon the type of filter you use. There are a variety of filters available on the market ranging from cheap and disposable fiberglass filters, to hypoallergenic clean air filters, and more permanent air filters that need changing only every 6-12 months or so. Be sure to follow your Ducane furnace’s specific guidelines for purchasing and installing new filters.
