Are you interested in saving money on heating this winter? Regardless of financial status, no one wants to pay more than they have to in order to heat their home. If you are currently heating with electricity, your energy costs will go down significantly by switching to gas heat. If your current gas furnace is more than 8 years old, you could lower your heating costs by installing a new, more efficient gas furnace. Andy Lewis Heating and Air Conditioning provides Charlotte with gas furnace installation as well as repair and maintenance for your future HVAC needs.
Replacing your old gas furnace will lower your monthly gas bill
Technology has come a long way in the last 8-10 years in regard to the energy efficiency of home heating and air conditioning. The ongoing energy crisis has inspired significant improvements in the efficiency of furnaces. A new gas furnace could pay for itself in monthly/yearly energy savings in less than 3 years. New furnaces use less gas to produce the same amount of heat. Your home will be just as warm, if not warmer, for less.
Switching from electric heat to a gas furnace saves money
You may assume that switching from electric heat to a gas furnace means you will just transfer the money you once paid to the power company over to the gas company instead. In actuality, because gas is a more efficient heating energy source, your gas bill will be lower than the part of your electric bill that was due to heating costs. Your electric bill and your gas bill together will likely be lower than your total electric bill used to be.
Gas furnaces are easier on the environment than electric
There is a socially accepted myth regarding electricity and the environment. It is assumed that electricity is easier on the environment than gas because when gas is burned it releases carbon monoxide into the air. However, what many people don’t realize is that in many areas, electricity is generated by burning coal. Natural gas burns much cleaner than coal and is less harmful to the environment.
Install a new furnace in your new home to get an efficient start
If you are in the process of, or thinking about building a new home, consider having a gas furnace installed.
