How to Choose Your Furnace: Gas vs. Electric

No matter the season, it is always a good time to upgrade your home’s heating system. Before you choose, make sure you know what type of furnace would be best for your home’s needs, as well as the needs of your family.

Perhaps you plan on riding this one out with the heating system that you have in place, but are thinking forward to a heating replacement when the spring arrives.

Whatever the scenario, you are wise to consider the use of a furnace. There are many reasons why so many homeowners swear by furnaces to keep their families comfortable when temperatures drop. Just remember that if you choose a furnace for your heating needs, it must be expertly installed and serviced. Contact Goettl Air Conditioning and Plumbing for help in narrowing down your choices.

Why Choose Gas?

For many homeowners, the gas furnace is the pinnacle of the home heating experience. It’s actually pretty hard to make an argument against a gas furnace. These systems are very effective, combusting natural gas in order to heat air, which is then distributed throughout one’s home via ductwork. The fact that natural gas is a fairly affordable fuel source, and that it burns hot and efficiently, only adds to the appeal. Plus, unlike oil or propane, natural gas is piped directly to the home and the appliances that use it. This means that you won’t ever have to worry about fuel deliveries or on-site storage. Plus, natural gas is quite clean-burning, for a fossil fuel.

Electricity Can be a Great Option

The major argument against electricity in regards to heating one’s home is the cost of electricity. While electric furnaces are extremely efficient, as they do not lose any heat generated via flue gases, the cost of electricity is high enough that you will likely still spend more to heat your home than you would with an efficient gas furnace. However, those who wish to use a furnace but lack natural gas hookups or access can still benefit from the performance quality of a furnace by opting for an electric model.

Let the experts at Goettl help you decide what type of furnace is right for your home.
