Chicago Heating: Gas Furnaces vs. Electric Furnaces

Here at Shavitz, our expert technicians have the experience and training to install both gas and electric type furnaces. There are tremendous advantages to both types of systems and you should always talk with a professional furnace contractor before you make a decision about which one you want in your home. While gas furnaces tend to be bigger and need to have a flue installed to exhaust combustion gases, they tend to cost less to run because the price of natural gas is almost always cheaper than electricity. Electric furnaces are a great option for homes that don’t have an existing gas line and they are 100% efficient, but they normally use more energy to heat your home and tend to cost more up front. Call the Chicago furnace installation and replacement experts at Shavitz if you have any questions about getting a new furnace.

If your furnace isn’t heating your home enough or if it turns off and on frequently, you would likely stand to gain more consistent and comfortable heating in your home with a new system.
New furnaces have a wide range of safety features that can potentially protect your home from damage.
