Is a Gas Heater More Efficient Than an Electric One?

I’ve been getting some crazy electric bills lately and it is making me wonder if my electric heater is using too much electricity to heat my flat.

  • I need to go visit the old man in the store and see what he thinks about it.

He has been an HVAC specialist for longer than I have been alive so I think he will have an answer. I bet that he is going to tell me that a gas unit is the way to go because it is much cheaper than an electric one. I’m not sure how much they cost to change out but I am going to run down to the local contractor to see if they are open today. Okay, so I just came back from the store and they are not open today because it is Sunday. I am going to look online at gas heaters and compare their energy usage to the electric heater. I think I could get a gas tank installed and even heat the water in my house with it too. I have an old hot water heater with a rusty tank that could be changed for a new one. I think my water heater is using a lot of power too because I take hot baths after my morning swim each day and I know I am using a lot of power to heat the water. I need to take these baths though because when I get home from my swims I am freezing and need to heat my body up quickly.
