Electric vs. Gas Heat

In a shift from the past, it is now less expensive to heat with electricity than with natural gas. Click for more information.In a shift from the past, it is now less expensive to heat with electricity than with natural gas.

The cost of natural gas has risen dramatically in the last few years

You can convert an existing gas furnace to a hybrid system by adding an electric heat pump.

Hybrid Systems: Best of Both Worlds

Hybrid heating and cooling systems have become increasingly popular Green options. Click for more information.As demand for “Green” technology increases, alternatives to traditional heating and cooling options such as hybrid heat systems have become increasingly popular options.

1) An energy efficient hybrid system combines a gas furnace with an electric heat pump

2) Hybrid systems can cut your rising gas costs by 50% – 60%

Geothermal Puts Earth’s Resources to Work for You

Click for more information about geothermal heat pump and cooling systems that use the Earth's ability to store heat in ground and water thermal masses.A geothermal heat pump system is a heating and/or an air conditioning system that uses the Earth’s ability to store heat in ground and water thermal masses.

  • A geothermal system transfers heat to or from the ground
  • A geothermal heat pump draws on that available heat in the winter
  • System reverses and puts heat back into ground in the summer
  • Geothermal heating has the least expensive cost of operation

Conventional Heating Solutions

Conventional ventilation systems, such as an oil or gas furnace and separate electric central ac unit or an all-electric heat pump and backup heater, while still available, are rapidly becoming a thing of the past.Conventional ventilation systems, such as an oil or gas furnace and separate electric central A/C unit or an all-electric heat pump and backup heater, while available, are rapidly becoming things of the past.

  • “Toaster-style” electric backup heaters are extremely inefficient and costly to operate
  • A gas backup heater is more cost-efficient when temperatures drop below 35 degrees

Oil furnaces, while still available, are becoming a less desirable option as oil prices continue to rise and oil furnaces require more maintenance than gas or electric units.
