The Hidden Perks of an Electric Furnace

January 12th, 2021

We think that sometimes electric furnaces get a bad rap. They’re overshadowed constantly by their bigger brother, the natural gas-powered furnace, which isn’t necessarily good. Electric furnaces are offered in markets far and wide for a reason, and we’d like to talk about why.

These differences, when pointed out, give homeowners a better clue as to why electric furnaces might actually be better systems for specific homes in our area. While you might have been told that natural gas furnaces are better for a home, an electric furnace in Sewell, NJ might actually be better for your home. Electric furnaces occupy a specific area of the heating industry, and we’re going to shine a light on that today.
