Why Choose A Gas Furnace

GAS FURNACES ARE CHEAPER TO OPERATE

Many homeowners are attracted by the price of electric furnaces. Although a gas furnace costs more up front, it’s more economical over the long term because gas is a cheaper fuel than electricity.

GAS HEATS YOUR HOME FASTER THAN ELECTRIC

When you feel cold and you adjust the thermostat accordingly, your heating system responds faster if you use a gas furnace. That’s because gas furnaces get hotter faster, so they warm up your space quicker.

GAS FURNACES ARE BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Most electricity is produced through the burning of coal and other fossil fuels. While nuclear and solar and other renewable energy sources continue to be used, the U.S. still depends heavily on fossil fuels. While gas furnaces do emit greenhouse gases, the result is still a much cleaner burn than with fossil fuels.

GAS FURNACES ARE ADVANTAGEOUS IN OUR CLIMATE

The Maryland/D.C. area climate is funny — we use our air conditioning here almost as much as we use our furnaces. However, we use our furnaces often enough for it to matter that gas is a better and more cost-effective option than electricity.

GAS IS EASIER TO USE THAN OIL OR PROPANE

While oil and propane are legitimate choices for fuels to heat your home, if you do not already use this type of fuel for your furnace, you will have to invest in a storage tank. Some people consider these large tanks on their property unattractive. Moreover, it’s important to have them regularly serviced and maintained to make sure they are safe, not leaking, and working properly.

GAS FURNACE INSTALLATION & REPLACEMENT

Gas usually wins out in the home heating debate because it’s cheaper to use and heats your home faster. If you have an electric furnace now and want to convert to gas, this may be a good decision for you. If you already have a gas line in your home that powers other appliances, this will make the conversion cheaper. If not, we will have to bring a gas line into your home. There is an expense associated with this, but as you replace your other appliances, you can opt for gas versions, saving on operating costs.
