Heat pumps and natural gas furnaces save homeowners money

Are you toying with the idea of ditching your current source of heat for a high efficiency gas furnace or a heat pump? If so, you’re likely wondering if it’s really worth it. In most cases, the answer is yes!

Home heating eats up the most energy in your household, especially if your home isn’t keeping cozy like it should be. Upgrading to a gas furnace or a heat pump is a smart choice for both your wallet and your home.

While the initial cost of installing a heat pump or a gas furnace may appear costly, the investment is quickly offset by savings on your energy bill right from the start. Natural gas is approximately one third the cost of electricity, and a heat pump can save you anywhere from 40% to 75%. Plus, there are all those energy savings going on!

To give you an idea about how much you’re spending to stay warm this winter, we’ve put together a spreadsheet that will help you compare energy costs for a variety of fuel sources.

Crunching the numbers can seem daunting, but the results will show you how much money is wasted by your current heating system.
