Should You Install a Gas or Electric Furnace?
The two most popular kinds of furnace are gas and electric models. Whenever we speak with homeowners looking to have a new furnace installed in their home, they often ask us what type of furnace is objectively "better" than the other. The truth is that the type of furnace you have will be more or less effective depending on your personal situation. We can give you some basic tips to help point you in the right direction, though.
Gas furnaces are the most popular of the furnace types, and in fact they’re the most popular heating system type in general. Natural gas is cheap, plentiful, and puts out a quite a bit of heat relative to the amount consumed. The downside to gas furnaces is that they require natural gas in order to operate, which means that if your home doesn’t have a natural gas line, you’re not going to be able to make use of it.
An electric furnace, on the other hand, uses a large heating coil to generate heat for the home. The advantage of using an electric furnace is that it can operate practically anywhere that electricity is available; you don’t have to worry about a natural gas line or any other additional equipment. The downside is that electricity is more expensive as a fuel source.
