Choosing Between a Gas or All-Electric Furnace

technician-and-customer-making-decision

Furnace heating systems have been around for a long time. Today’s models look and operate differently than those that were found in houses 100 years ago. The furnaces that you can find today are made to be as effective, efficient, and safe as possible which is why you may be considering a furnace installation in Campbell County, WY.

If you are considering a furnace for your home, then one of the biggest decisions that you’ll need to make is choosing between a gas or electric furnace. We’ll give you some of the biggest factors to consider when deciding what kind of furnace you want and then help you through the rest of the process with our expert furnace services.

The Pros and Cons of a Gas-Powered Furnace

Let’s start by looking at the furnace that most people think of when discussing these systems: the gas-powered furnace. This system uses electricity to run the motor and, in many cases, ignite the natural gas that creates heat for your home.

Opting for a natural gas furnace installation is a good idea if you already have a gas connection in your home. This makes the installation a reasonable process although it’ll still be more expensive because there are more connections to make. When properly installed though, your gas furnace can serve you effectively and efficiently on even the coldest of days. They’re also quite affordable to use on a regular basis.

Unsurprisingly, the downside to these systems is their use of gas. This may not be the system you want if you’re trying to stop your use of gas. While gas furnaces are made to be as safe as possible, old age and major wear and tear can lead them to have a higher risk of a gas leak too.

The Pros and Cons of an All-Electric Furnace

The other kind of furnace to consider is the all-electric furnace. As the name suggests, this system only uses electricity to get the job done. Electrical resistance allows it to make heat for your home.

These furnaces may be an ideal choice for someone who wants to stop using gas appliances or someone who doesn’t have access to a gas line to begin with. This also makes them much faster and less costly to install. An electric furnace, while still being powerful, will never create the risk of a gas leak as it ages.

The major downside of this system is the monthly operating costs. The cost to run an electric furnace will vary depending on the price of electricity. If electricity is costly in your area, then an electric furnace may be too expensive to use.
