Important Tips For Choosing And Maintaining Mobile Home Furnaces


Comfort is one very important aspect when it comes to owning a home, especially a prefab or mobile home. This is why heating and cooling systems are of utmost importance. Apart from regulating your home's indoor temperature to favorable levels with the click of a bottom or switch, air conditioning systems also help protect the structural integrity of your home, by preventing the condensation of air for instance, which would in turn cause damages to some parts such as ceiling boards or even create a conducive environment for thriving of harmful microbes and molds. This is where thermostatic furnaces for mobile home heating and cooling systems come in.

In essence, mobile home furnaces utilize electric elements to provide heat to warm up your internal surroundings through a heat exchanger. The heat is then circulated conveniently by a blower or fan over the heat exchanger and then sent to the ducting system as hot air, through which it is conveyed to various rooms in your mobile home. When buying a heating system furnace or any heating and cooling system component, it is important to ensure that it suits your mobile home appropriately.

Consider Air Quality and Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is another quite important factor to consider when buying a mobile home furnace. The amount of energy consumed as your air conditioning unit operates is directly proportional to the amount you will pay for your electric or gas bill. You should also choose a furnace that is right for the air conditioning or heating unit for your mobile home. The incoming vents of the furnace should during installation, be positioned where they will function optimally. To prevent the release of potentially harmful or polluted fumes to the indoor air, it is advisable that heating and cooling units be built with a sealed combustion unit.

The Various Types Sizes and Ratings

In most cases, furnaces designed for the mobile home are relatively smaller in size than the ones for regular homes. Additionally, their installation is also a bit different, not forgetting that they should be vented or ducted appropriately for utmost safety and performance effectiveness. The actual size of your mobile home will also determine the air conditioning unit and furnace that will be ideal for the job.

Common Mobile Home Furnace Brands

There are many different furnace manufacturers in the market, some of which produce and supply furnaces for both traditional and mobile homes. Some of the most popular brands include Bryant, Axeman Anderson, Coleman, Miller, Evcon, Nordyne, and Interterm.

Consider Location and Climatic Conditions

Your location’s climate is also a highly important factor to consider when buying a heating/cooling unit or furnace for your mobile home. Some furnaces are too small to perform in certain weather extremes and therefore end up consuming a lot of energy or possibly getting damaged to working too hard. This leaves you with higher energy bills to pay and more repair or replacement costs to incur.

Maintaining and Service Your Mobile Home Furnace

Thanks to mobile home furnaces, it’s always a nice experience to have an efficient heating system for your mobile home, especially during winter where you don’t have to worry much about the low extremities. However, due to the accumulation of dust particles and other obstructions in duct lines, filters and other areas with heating and cooling systems, mobile home furnaces end up being overworked and consuming a lot of energy. This is because furnaces for mobile homes are supplied with air directly via removable grilles. For the same reasons, these systems sometimes end up suffering in terms of performance efficiency. In other words, not inspecting and servicing your heating and cooling systems every once in a while will end up reducing its lifetime if not increase the costs of repair and maintenance. To avoid these setbacks, ensure you clean or replace the furnace filter at least once or twice a year for the best experience.
