Convert Your Heater from Electric to Gas for Increased Cost Savings and Efficiency
Although electricity and natural gas are two of the most commonly used power sources for home heating, switching from electric to gas is easier for some homeowners than others.
- First and foremost, check with your local utility company to verify gas is available in your area. Access to natural gas may be limited where you live. If a new gas line needs to be brought into your home then this upgrade could cost thousands of dollars, increasing the overall conversion cost.
- Secondly, evaluate your current electric heating system. If you have a heat pump, then the ductwork infrastructure is already present. However, if you currently use baseboard heaters then ductwork would need to be installed in order to operate a gas furnace and could be an expensive and complex process.
- Heating your home with natural gas is more economical than using electric. Evaluate whether your long-term cost savings versus conversion costs will provide a return on your investment within a reasonable time frame.
