Should You Have a Gas Furnace for Your Home?

Gas FurnaceWhen you need to update the heating system in your home, you may want to consider installing a gas furnace. There are some pretty good reasons to either upgrade an aging furnace or to replace a different system with natural gas. At McQuerry’s 24-Hour Heating, we want you to be comfortable no matter how cold it is outside.

1. Great Energy Efficiency

The gas furnace is one of the most efficient ways to heat your home. This translates into savings on your monthly heating bills and can also mean that your entire system suffers less from wear and tear. This is compared to oil and electricity, two common sources of heating.

2. Increased Humidity Control

Humidity can be a problem for many people, especially if the moist air is packed with toxic gases from burning oil. A gas heating system gives you more control over the amount of humidity in your home, providing a more comfortable living environment.

3. Fast Heat

When a cold snap takes over the St. Louis community, a gas heater delivers warmth quickly. Why wait around for slower heat sources when you can have the instant heat that natural gas provides?

4. More Reliable in Cold Temperatures

Not only does a furnace deliver quick warmth, but this type of furnace operates more efficiently when the temperatures drop. When faced with extremely low temperatures, natural gas is still able to efficiently heat your home. Those same temperatures can pose problems for other types of heating.

5. Lower Operation Costs

In many cases, natural gas heating is cheaper than either electric heating or oil. When you consider the efficiency of gas heating, then the operation costs of the gas-powered furnace look even better. The speed of heating up also means that the furnace does not have to work as hard to keep the home warm, and this translates into lower costs as well.

As you prepare for colder temperatures, consider using as gas furnace to heat your home. There are plenty of advantages, and McQuerry’s 24-Hour Heating can help you with the new installation. Give us a call at 636-225-0087.
