At Jerry Kelly, we proudly install both gas and electric furnaces. But how do you know which works best for your home? Let us help.
Electric v. Gas: How Do You Choose?
Your furnace is something you rarely think about until it stops working and you need a replacement. When that happens, your head is filled with questions, such as “How do these systems work?” and “Which type is more suitable for my home?” Fortunately, with Jerry Kelly on your side, we can help answer your questions and alleviate any worry you might have about making the perfect choice. Here are tips on both types:
In the simplest of terms, an electric furnace uses electric heating elements to produce heat throughout your home (as opposed to gas burners). Some benefits of electric furnaces are that they don’t use natural gas (i.e. no carbon monoxide is emitted) and can be used to both heat and cool your home year-round. Although they can sometimes increase your utility bill, they are still an ideal heating option for your home, especially if gas is not an option in your neighborhood or region.
These days, natural gas furnaces are a very popular way to heat your home. These heating units use forced air (hot gas combined with a heat exchanger circulates warm air) to heat your home. Gas furnaces are highly efficient and budget-friendly and operate in a very quiet and clean manner. Their low fuel costs make them a very attractive option for homeowners and they often operate at 98 percent efficiency. Similar to electric furnaces, gas options can last for about 20 years, which makes them a great investment.
How Can I Be Sure?
If you’re like many homeowners, you might still be on the fence as to whether or not a replacement is actually necessary. To help you determine if the time is right, ask yourself the following:
- Is your unit over 10 years old?
- Does it constantly need repairs?
- Have your energy bills increased?
- Are there cold and hot spots throughout your home?
- Is your comfort being compromised?
If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, these are signs it’s time to replace your current system.
