An oven is defined in the dictionary as “an enclosed compartment for heating, baking or drying.” Typically, ovens are used for cooking, the most common type being natural gas.
A furnace is defined as “an enclosed space in which heat is produced by combustion or other means.” Furnaces are used in a many applications, ranging from heating a home to steel making. This, of course, includes electric furnaces.
