Gas or Electric?
The most common question we get from homeowners looking to buy a furnace is which type is better: gas or electric? The truth is that no furnace type is always going to be better than any other option. Both gas furnaces and electric furnaces have advantages suited to different home situations. The real question is which furnace would fit your needs the best.
- Gas Furnaces: These are the most common type in the country. They operate by combusting natural gas to generate heat. Natural gas is cheap, plentiful, and generates a lot of heat relative to the amount burned. However, in order for a gas furnace to operate it needs access to a gas line. If your home doesn’t have a gas line installed in it, or you don’t have a gas main nearby, you won’t be able to use a gas furnace.
- Electric Furnaces: While less common than gas furnaces, they are still used quite often throughout the country. An electric furnace doesn’t burn fuel to generate heat. Instead, it runs an electrical current through a large heating coil to heat the home. Electricity is slightly more expensive than natural gas as a fuel source. However, an electric furnace can work anywhere that enough electricity is available. This makes it more versatile than a gas furnace.
