Gas vs Electric Heat

Gas Heating VS Electric Heating

As you may know natural gas still remains the most used home heating fuel in the United States.

However, it may not be available in all areas. Homeowners who do not have access to natural gas, or those who may prefer a different type of heating may look towards electricity to power home heating systems.

In spite of its high efficiency, electric heating usually costs more to operate that a traditional gas furnace. When comparing an electric heater to a gas furnace, please consider not only the cost of each option, but also how these two systems may impact the environment.
