You have two options when it comes to appliances: gas or electric. Whether you are building new or just looking into new appliances, it can be a big decision trying to choose the best appliance option for your home. It can also depend on what your current home is built for. However, gas appliances are often the better option. While electric does have some pros, gas outshines electric in a lot of ways. Here are some reasons why gas appliances are the better choice.
- The most cost effective option is gas. Natural gas furnaces are more technologically advanced and use better fuel to make sure you get as much heat for your dollar as you can. While you might spend a bit more when buying gas appliances, you save more in the long run with your gas bill- up to 30% in fact.
- Gas appliances create better-tasting meals. Gas stovetops, ranges and ovens cook more evenly and have better temperature control, making it easier to cook things to perfection. They are also economical. It costs about half as much to cook with a gas appliance as with an electric one.
- Drying your clothes is more cost effective with a gas dryer. You can save up to 55% on your energy costs with gas rather than electric. Your gas dryer also dries clothes faster for less money and creates less static cling.
These are just a few examples as to why gas appliances are the better choice for your home.
