Gas furnace or electric furnace on new build? What would you do?


Posted by Rick on May 9th, 2001 09:39 AM

I'm building a new house and our builder uses all gas for the appliances and furnace, with an option to go with electric. We were told that we should stay with gas, since the resale value would be higher then if the house was all electric.

Problem is, I know of people who live in all electric homes and all gas homes, and the electric homes say their electric costs increased a little compared to last year, and the gas homes said their gas bills increased tremendously since last year...telling us to stay away from gas.

Any thoughts? (By the way, we'll be getting a heat pump after the build regardless what we go with.)
