  • Q.Gas Heaters – FAQ
    A.

    Gas heaters for home are a reliable option for warmth throughout the winter. Below you’ll find the answer to questions you may have about gas heaters.

    Are gas heaters common?

    Approximately half of American homes are heated with gas, making gas heaters quite common. 49% of homes use natural gas for space heating.

    How much do gas heaters cost?

    The price of new gas heaters for the home depends on several factors. The heating load of your home, the presence or lack of gas lines and duct work, and other elements will be considered when determining the price of a gas heating system compatible with your needs. The best way to find the cost of gas heaters is to request an estimate from a trusted HVAC contractor.

    Is it more expensive to use gas heaters for home rather than electric heaters?

    In most cases, natural gas heaters are less expensive to operate, compared to electric heaters. To estimate the operating costs of a new gas heater, check with your utility provider to learn the unit cost of natural gas. Using the AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of the gas heater, determine the approximate cost of heating your home using natural gas and that gas heater model.

    What types of gas heaters are available?

    There are many types of heating systems available which utilize natural gas. These include gas furnaces, natural gas boilers, hybrid dual fuel heating systems, and packaged systems.

    Are gas heaters safe? What safety equipment is needed when using gas heat?

    Gas heaters are quite safe for use in the home, especially when installed by qualified heating technicians. In any home with gas appliances, carbon monoxide detectors should be installed. At least one carbon monoxide detector should be installed on each floor of the home to effectively detect carbon monoxide leaks and alert your family.

    Can I install a gas heater myself?

    To protect your family, home, and heating equipment, never install a gas heating system on your own unless you are qualified to do so. DIYing this project incorrectly has the potential to void equipment warranties, create uncomfortable indoor living spaces, and expose home occupants to dangerous carbon monoxide.
