The Differences Between Gas, Oil, and Electric Furnaces
There are more options than you may think! Each type of furnace has its own purpose and benefit. While all furnaces are made to keep you warm in your home, there are upsides and downsides for the various systems we list below. Depending on the furnace type, you’ll find that the price differs.
Gas furnaces are the most commonly found units in homes to date. Gas (methanol) is piped into the municipal line which leads to the gas burner igniting and the hot combustion gas then raises the temperature of the air. Natural gas systems have some of the lowest yearly costs and are overall less harmful to the environment in comparison to oil or propane. However, there needs to be a gas line in place near the location of the home which may not be the case in more rural areas.
Electric furnaces only use electricity. This is the most efficient method of heating. However, it creates a higher electricity bill in the end. They are also less intensive to install comparing to other options. It is extremely important to size it correctly for your house or else it will either run constantly or turn on and off too frequently. This causes the unit to short cycle and results in system premature failure.
