Is A Gas Or Electric Furnace Better?
If your home has access to natural gas, it’s one of the most affordable and dependable furnace fuels.
Gas furnaces heat your home more quickly. The heat produced by your gas system is generally hotter than electric furnaces.
Meaning your home gets warmer in a shorter time, making gas heating better for colder climates.
Natural gas burns clean and efficient and is a great choice to keep your home cozy through the winter months.
Suppose your home doesn’t have access to natural gas. That’s okay. Though not as affordable to run, an electric furnace is a great option to keep your home warm.
Electric furnaces have less up-front costs. They’re generally cheaper and easier to install, which means a lower up-front investment.
