I have been looking into getting a furnace for my home, however there are three different kinds of furnaces out there! You can get a gas, oil & electric type! I have searched into the pros & cons to each! A gas furnace is the most usual type of heater.
It is best for cold weather.
It is quite energy efficient for a furnace & most companies know how to labor on this kind of system, but sadly a gas furnace has a complicated set up process with gas hookups & a flue system. Additionally, a gas furnace is a fire hazard. If you are not on top of it with heating repair & air filter fluctuations, the machine could easily light on fire or release carbon monoxide. An electric heating system is much safer & is 100% energy smart. You also just plug it in & you are nice to go. The sizable con with this one is simply the cost. The cost of electrically heating your home over gas or oil is significantly different. In fact, it is so extravagant that those in colder weather areas shouldn’t consider an electric heater. If you live where it is cold, choose a gas or oil one. An oil furnace burns a hotter flame. It creates more heat, faster as well. An oil furnace means you are reliant on oil deliveries & need an on site oil tank, but not only is that ugly, however you could easily be stuck without fuel for quite some time if there was a snowstorm. So what kind of furnace overall is best?
