The most popular type of heating for our homes is by far electric, but there are many options to consider- there is natural gas, oil, and propane too. Electric furnaces are the most popular because they are the most convenient and easily accessible. However, it is not the most cost-effective nor efficient option.
Heating your home with natural gas is the most affordable way to keep warm in those long and cold winter months. This is because natural gas is the cheapest fuel on the market, and it is 97% efficient, so you get more for your money.
The only downfall to natural gas as a means to heat your home is that it is not available to everyone. There has to be a natural gas line in your neighborhood in order for you to use it. It is possible that you have access to natural gas, but your home does not have the connection that can be changed with an appointment with the natural gas supplier in your area.
Oil and propane are not always an ideal choice for heating your home for a few reasons. Other than the fact that they are more expensive, they also have to be delivered to your home, and these furnaces require slightly more maintenance.
