Answer: The two most common types of heating which are used in the US homes include gas heating and electrical heating. Hence, you may be doubtful about the kind of heating that you need to choose for your home. To make that choice you should be aware of the features of both these types of heating. First of all both electric heaters and gas heating can be categorized into two types each. Electric heaters have radiation heaters as well as convection heaters. On the other hand gas heaters are of two types as well. They are the flued heaters and the non-flued heaters. The installation of electric heaters is a lot simpler than that of gas heaters. In fact, the cost to install an electric heater is lesser than the cost of installing a gas heater. As a result you might be discouraged to shift from electric heating to gas heating. But the environmental benefit and the savings that you make in the long run from gas heating will encourage you to move to gas heating for your home.
