Gas or Electric Heating

Choosing whether to have gas or electric heating at home is a decision that will have a long-term effect on your energy cost as well as the comfort and safety of the household members. To arrive at the best decision, following are some factors to consider about the two heating systems.

Cost – In terms of installation, electric heating would generally cost less than the gas heating system. However, in terms of fuel usage, gas would cost less. So in the long run, the gas heating system would cost less.

Efficiency - Ratings: electric heating - 30 percent; gas heating - 94 percent. This means that gas will heat your homes faster than electric heat.

Safety - Electric heaters require some distance from other household items to reduce the risk of fire. But they have a lower potential to explode than a gas heater. On the other hand, gas heaters need to have sufficient ventilation to remove or reduce the level of dangerous combustion gases like carbon monoxide in the air.

Home Value - You never know when you need to sell your home. Most home buyers find gas heating to be a more attractive feature because as the system is already installed, they are more interested on the cost of heating fuel.

These are just some of the factors to consider. Other factors would be specific to your locality or type of home. Your final choice between gas or electric heating is a decision that you and the family will live with for about 20 years or more or until you rebuild the house or move to a new location.
