Gas Furnace vs. Electric Furnace: Which Type Is Better for Installation?
The general answer to this question is that the gas furnace is usually the superior choice. If your home has access to a natural gas line, then we advise that you make a gas–powered furnace the top pick on your list. There a two good reasons for this. First, natural gas is a less expensive energy source than electricity, and a gas furnace will cost you less to run each month. Second, a gas furnace provides a powerful level of heat that can overcome even the bitterest chill.
However, there are also reasons to consider an electric furnace. It’s a good option if your home isn’t connected to a natural gas line. Electric furnaces are also less expensive to install initially, and they are safer for homes than using a gas furnace. (However, today’s gas furnaces are extremely safe.)
Only Call on Professionals for Furnace Repairs!
You shouldn’t attempt to make any repairs to a broken heating system on your own, or look to a non–professional to tackle the job. With furnaces, this is especially important, as the potential for injury is high when amateurs tamper with one of them. A gas furnace can develop carbon monoxide leaks or even the threat of combustion if cared for wrong.
Even leaving aside the safety issues, furnaces are too complicated for anyone without proper training to handle correctly.
