SWITCH FROM AN ELECTRIC FURNACE TO NATURAL GAS

Tips to improve your home and lower your energy bill


While electric furnaces are very efficient, sometimes approaching 99 percent efficiency, natural gas can convert energy to heat at a much lower cost. Even a 90 percent efficient natural gas furnace is much more cost effective than an electric one. Not only is it more cost-effective, it can warm your home more quickly than an electric furnace, making it more comfortable as well.

 

 

what to do

 

Start by sealing around your windows and insulating your attic. You’ll reduce the amount of energy you need to heat your home, and minimize the size of the furnace you’ll need to purchase.


Then, investigate different furnace options, balancing both efficiency and cost to find the most cost-effective furnace for you. To get the best results, hire a contractor who knows how to match energy-efficiency with your needs.
