At Oliver, we install a variety of heating systems. One of the most popular, however, is a gas heating system. Natural gas is a reliable fuel source and when you choose it to heat your home, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits. These include:
While it all depends on several factors (such as the efficiency of your furnace and the cost of fuel), natural gas is generally more affordable than oil or electricity. Most of today’s gas heating systems are highly efficient and can help you reduce your monthly energy bills.
Natural gas is one of the cleanest heat options available. Its emissions consist of mostly water vapor and small amounts of carbon dioxide. In fact, gas produces about 45 percent less carbon dioxide than coal and 30 percent less carbon dioxide than wood. This means when you choose natural gas, you’ll heat your home cleanly and leave behind a smaller carbon footprint.
You want to be able to count on your home’s heat source. When you choose natural gas, you can rest easy knowing your gas lines run underground. This protects them from outdoor elements and keeps them safe during storms. When compared to oil or propane, you can also count on a constant supply of gas rather than having to wait for a delivery of fuel.
When it comes to cooking, many homeowners prefer a gas heating system over electric. Gas lets you cook with an open flame, provides instant heat, and allows you to control the amount of heat very easily. In addition, you can still use a gas stove if you lose power. (You can’t use an electric stove.)
There’s nothing better than a warm, cozy home. When you choose your fuel type, there’s an advantage to choosing gas: comfort. A gas furnace can warm your home faster than an electric furnace. In fact, the temperature of gas heat is between 110 and 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
A home run on natural gas is an appealing selling point. If you have a gas heating system, you’ll increase the value of your home and attract more potential buyers. This can help you sell more quickly and get a better bang for your buck.
