Natural gas heat provides a warmer feel than what can be produced by electric heating. Forced-air systems used with natural gas heat to provide warmth from 55 to 60 degrees Celsius. With an electric heat pump, the temperatures would be from 25 to 45 degrees Celsius

An Economical Choice

Any heating system is measured by the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The AFUE is a ratio of the amount of energy that goes into the system to the amount of energy that comes out in a form of usable heat. Heat lost is considered in this ratio. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient the unit will be, saving you money on your monthly heating bills. New furnaces that operate on natural gas have the ability to use 98% of their energy input, which is an amazing way to remain economical while heating the home.

Installing Natural Gas In Your Home

If you are planning on installing natural gas in the home, it is important to ask an HVAC technician a few questions. You need to find out if natural gas is available in your area and how much the cost will be for the install, as well as to use the natural gas in the home. The cost of operating the system will of course vary based on the size of the home as well as unit type. By consulting with a professional HVAC technician, you can find options for your home that will help you to install a natural gas unit that is appropriate for your home.

It is also important to consider if the installation process will include a duct work system. This can be tied into a central air conditioning unit easily. This way, you can use natural gas for your heating element and an energy efficient central unit for cooling the home. Doing this will allow you to have a quality form of comfort during the winter and summer months, saving money year round as your systems will be highly energy efficient.

Overall, it is important to have your property reviewed by a professional. Whether you are considering a new home build or installing natural gas in your existing home, you need to have a top HVAC company take a look at your property for an evaluation.
