It's no secret that gas furnaces save money on hydro and are more efficient on the environment. In comparison to the old baseboard heating way, heating your home with gas has a lot of added benefits including no damage to your furniture; no cracking of the drywall; and no drying out your beautiful hardwood floors.
With hydro rates already skyrocketing in Ontario, heating your home with electricity is very inefficient and set to be the most expensive way to heat your home during those cold winter months.
When you compare electric baseboards to natural gas, electric baseboards its at a 5 to 1 ratio. What does that mean? It means you can expect to pay approximately $5,000.00 in one year heating your home in Ontario with baseboard heating whereas you can expect to pay approximately $1,000.00 a year on natural gas!
So what does switching to natural gas entail? Switching to Gas will require new duct work throughout the home. This cost will pay for itself in savings in the next 6-7 years and is beneficial for the resell of your home!
Electric forced air furnaces compare at a 4 to 1 ratio meaning it costs 4 times more than natural gas! Switching to natural gas from electric forced air is well worth the investment as well. The duct work already exists in your home therefore it eliminates a lot of the cost for installation right there.
Overall the investment of a gas furnace would pay for itself in less than 3 years compared to the cost of running the electric forced air furnace.
