What is the best option for a natural gas floor furnace replacement?
I have an older home with a floor furnace. My furnace went out and the gas company said it can't be repaired. We get some really harsh winters with sub zero temperatures. We had some days with a wind chill of -10 degrees fahrenheit. The whole house is about 940 square feet and heated by a single floor furnace.
I was quoted $3,000 to have my old furnace removed and a new gas floor furnace professionally installed. They want about $10,000 to install a furnace with ductwork.
What would be the best option for heating this home? Electric would require wiring as my current wiring won't handle a space heater. Turned on the Sunheat then turned on the dishwasher and blew a fuse.
I feel the floor furnace is quite antiqueish, but replacement might be the best option???? I have no heat in the house so your help is appreciated.

How does the floor furnace heat the house? If it able to heat all the rooms to a comfortable temperature then that maybe the way to go. Its definitely gonna be the fastest. Which being in the middle of winter is gonna factor in.
A ducted system will definitely distribute the conditioned air betterthrew out the house. It might be be more efficient

I have two cottages about the same size.
I installed a 98% efficient gas furnace in each and watched my fuel bill drop drastically.
Mine have had the nozzles changed to use Propane because we don't get Natural gas in the country.
