I am debating on if I want to get a gas oil furnace or an electric heater. There are pros and cons to both heating equipment. The gas furnace has a lot of safety issues associated with it. Basically if you let the oil furnace get dirty, it can overheat and bad things will happen. The heat exchanger could crack and release carbon monoxide into the home. The tasteless, odorless gas will slowly poison you until hospitalization. What is worse is that the oil furnace could also catch on fire if it gets too sizzling with the dust; Fire or poison, what is absolutely better? The electric furnace is just super costly. The initial cost, upgrade and repair is more. Also, using electric to heat is just way more costly than gas. When the power goes out too, you are screwed. Do you absolutely wanna deliver up heating on absolutely rainy, windy days? The upgrade of the electric oil furnace is super simple though. A gas furnace requires gas hookups and a flue idea installed. But when you run that gas heater, the cost of it won’t be bad. You also can constantly get gas to run your system. A power outage won’t matter, you are safe. So what oil furnace unit is the right a single for me? I suppose I need a furnace with the layout of our home. It just makes sense. I don’t suppose if I can handle the safety risks to get a cheaper heater. But, I don’t suppose if I can afford an electric oil furnace with all the expenses associated.
