Differences Among Gas, Electric, and Oil Furnaces
Natural gas furnaces are efficient and heat your home quickly. Although the initial costs are higher and installations are more complicated, gas furnaces have lower ongoing fuel costs than electric or oil furnaces. Gas furnaces can last up to 20 years and are better choices for colder climates, but carbon monoxide concerns tend to be more prominent than the others, which is why regular maintenance is critical.
Electric furnaces are the easiest and cheapest to install. However, the ongoing fuel costs of electric furnaces are higher. These furnaces are quieter, have more straightforward maintenance requirements, and can last up to 30 years. Electric furnaces are less efficient than oil and gas furnaces, so they are better for warmer climates with shorter winters.
In the Northeast, oil furnaces are less efficient than gas furnaces and more efficient than electric. With these furnaces, oil is usually stored in a tank near your home, and you must monitor fuel levels so you don’t run out. They will need more maintenance, and ongoing costs for oil furnaces will also fluctuate because of frequent fuel cost fluctuations.
Common Reasons for Natural Gas Furnace Repair
Gas furnaces usually have warning signs it needs service before it completely breaks down:
- The furnace is blowing cold air

- Furnace cycles on and off frequently

These issues could be electrical or mechanical, but they’re all issues that need to be assessed and addressed by a professional immediately.
