Should I Worry That a Gas Furnace Will Dry Out My Home’s Air?

November 15th, 2021

natural-gas-furnaceYou may have heard that a drawback of gas furnaces is they tend to make the air in a house drier. Is this true, and is it something you need to consider when thinking about replacing your current furnace?

The short version, if you don’t want to hang around for the longer explanation, is that older types of gas furnaces can contribute to drier indoor air (although they do not directly dry the air) while newer ones do not. If you’re looking to have a new gas furnace installed, our technicians offer the quality furnace service in Houston, TX that will ensure you have the right unit for your needs. If dry air is still a problem in your home, regardless of the type of furnace you have, we can help with installing a whole-house humidifier.
