A high-efficiency natural gas furnace may have a higher price tag than
other furnaces but the investment will be recovered in energy savings
within a few years of operation. Choosing your new furnace based on
price alone may lead to initial savings but down the road the less
efficient furnace will cost you more.
Natural gas is the preferred fuel for home heating
A natural gas furnace produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions than any
other fossil fuel fired furnace. It is more environmentally friendly to
use natural gas to heat your home compared to electricity, because
natural gas furnaces produce less carbon dioxide.
Converting to natural gas can be easy
