August 1, 2008, Newsletter Issue #100: Gas Furnaces: Cleaner and Cheaper to Run Than Electric

Tip of the Week

Natural gas or oil?

It's hard to know which type of energy fuel is better for home heating. Homeowners are familiar with the up-and-down cycle of natural gas prices. Before choosing the fuel type for a new heating system, weigh the advantages and disadvantages.

Even with seasonal increases, high-efficiency gas furnaces cost less to operate than electric furnaces. Natural gas is always available, while the oil market is unstable from the war in the Middle East. You also do not have the hassle of refilling and maintaining storage tanks, like you do with oil.

Natural gas requires no large storage tanks in your basement. It also is less polluting, producing almost no emissions.
