Although furnaces are popular there may be a better alternative, especially now with the new CA Rule 1111. With residential gas furnaces being 5% of our total emissions, the state of California is concerned with our environment. Electric heat pumps have become the best and smartest solution to gas furnaces. Electric Heat pumps are better for public health by reducing poisonous emissions, are 4 to 6 times more efficient, and can save you on average $60 each month in utility bills. Not only that, it mitigates our impact on our environment as they don’t require gas to operate and eliminates any risk of gas poisoning and fires/explosions.
Electric Heat Pump
|Significantly more efficient||Requires indoor and outdoor components|
|Installation cost is usually much lower||In extremely cold weather, it won’t be as effective|
|Save money on utility bills|
|No risk of carbon monoxide poisoning|
|Usually has a longer lifespan||A gas leak could result in an explosion or fire|
|Fewer mechanical parts which can lead to lower maintenance cost||Gas combustion leads to poor indoor air quality|
|Tend to be more dependable due to fewer components|
In the graph below, various home heating methods are presented. The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) measures just how much fuel each system efficiently utilizes compared to other methods. While other options have a range from between 45% to 97%, electric heating is the only method that achieves 100% efficiency while also lowering the chances of health and safety risks that come with natural gas and the burning of fuel.
