Advantages of Natural Gas Furnaces
Natural Gas Furnace Benefits
Natural gas is the fuel of choice for homeowners. It is a clean, affordable, safe and efficient energy choice. Some of the advantages of natural gas include lower energy bills and increased value when you sell your house, plus has many other benefits.
Converting to natural gas will save you energy and money. One of the many benefits of natural gas is that today, natural gas costs less than electricity – from 50-70% less. This means you can dramatically reduce your heating and water heating costs. A modern natural gas heating system gives you virtually “instant heat.” With electricity, it takes longer for those old resistance coils to warm up.
Why Switch to a Gas Furnace?
Reduce your heating costs by 50% to 70% depending on furnace efficiency and the energy from which you are switching. Since the 2001 energy crisis, electric prices have increased and more increases are possible. Gas prices are a great value compared to other heating fuels.
New gas furnaces can be up to 98% efficient so your future heating bills will be as low as possible. With current energy costs, it is more important than ever to use all energy wisely, natural gas, electricity, propane, and oil.
Comfort and Reliability
Gas heat delivers warm air at the register that is normally 110+ degrees, which is significantly warmer than your body temperature. The result is a warm and cozy home – quickly. In addition, many gas appliances will continue to work in the event of a power outage.
Protects the Environment
Another one of the pros of natural gas is that gas is a cleaner burning fuel. In fact, it is less harmful to the environment than oil, wood or even electricity produced from a fossil fuel. Using gas directly for your heating needs reduces the overall demand for electricity in our region.
Increases Home Value
Ask a real estate professional and he or she will likely tell you that people ask about natural gas availability when looking for new homes. They want comfort, convenience, and lower heating bills – the result of converting to gas.
