Have you ever met someone that thinks dogs and cats are the same thing? Well, good because they’re not (at least not as far as we know). However, there are many homeowners out there that don’t know the difference between a gas or electric furnace. To be honest, since we work in the Pelham, AL HVAC services industry, that can be an appalling thing for us to hear.
We get it — if you don’t deal with furnaces as often as we do, how would you know the difference between the two? The problem is, you might be losing money or not be getting the effective heating solution that you could be receiving because you have the wrong type of furnace in your home. If it’s crazy to think that cats and dogs are the same household pet, wouldn’t it be just as absurd to think your electric furnace is the exact same as a gas one?
Let’s break down the difference.
