Gas Vs Oil: Battle Of The Furnaces

Gas Vs Oil: Battle Of The Furnaces

Each year, there are thousands of people that will need to replace their existing heating systems. Whether it’s from excessive part failures, too much wear and tear, or just plain old age, a new system will eventually need to be installed. When it’s time to replace yours, which type of heating system do you choose — oil or gas?

Oil Furnaces

  • Provides the Most Heat per BTU
  • Furnace Itself is the Least Expensive
  • Furnace Can Be Installed in Any Geographic Area
  • Easily Serviced, as Long as a Service Contract is Purchased

Natural Gas Furnaces

  • Has the Highest Efficiency Rating
  • Enjoys the Lowest Fuel Costs
  • Natural Gas Prices Are Less Volatile Than Oil
  • Requires the Least Amount of Maintenance
  • Does Not Need a Service Contract for Service
  • Quieter and Cleaner Than Other Types of Furnaces

Winner: Natural Gas

While both oil and natural gas furnaces both have their pros and cons, there are generally more reasons to go with a natural gas heating system than its oil counterpart. While an oil system might heat up the house at a faster rate, a gas furnace will be able to do it more efficiently and at a lower cost. Natural gas lines are needed in order to have one in your home, so if these lines are available where you live — opt for a natural gas heating system.
