Gas Furnace or an Electric Furnace

Would a Gas Furnace or an Electric Furnace Benefit Me More?

Monday, March 7th, 2016 at 11:00 am

As winter comes to a close in South Williamson, KY, you may be deciding whether or not your heating system worked as efficiently as possible this season. Perhaps it's time for you to consider replacing your heating system all together. Now the question is: should you purchase an electric furnace, or a gas furnace? There are advantages to both, which we've highlighted below.


Typically, a gas furnace will be less expensive to operate than an electric unit. This is because natural gas is a cheaper form of energy than electricity, especially in the last decade. On the other hand, a gas furnace could cost more upfront than an electric unit.

Gas furnaces are also faster at heating your home than their electric counterparts. This makes them more effective and efficient in very cold temperatures. However, the lifespan of a gas furnace is usually less than that of an electric unit.

Just like any other type of heating system, a gas furnace must be regularly maintained. This is especially important due to the small risk of carbon monoxide exposure. Carbon monoxide problems are rare, but keeping your gas furnace well maintained will ensure the safety of your home and your family.


The initial purchase price of an electric furnace is typically lower than a gas furnace. Keep in mind though that the cost of operating an electric furnace is usually going to be higher than operating a gas furnace.

Many homeowners choose an electric furnace over a gas-powered system because they are quiet, and generally more durable than gas units. In fact, their lifespan could be double that of a gas furnace. Of course, this is dependent on how well maintained it is.

We can help you choose the right type of furnace for your home. Call American Heating & Cooling today for quality furnace services!
