Gas Furnace vs Electric Heater

What is the difference between a Gas Furnace or a Electric Heater ?

As the winter days approach so may your questions about what is the right heating system for you. The difference between both systems is in the way that they create heat. A gas furnace has burners that are activated and heat is then generated in a heat combustion chamber so that it can be distributed.

Unlike this system electric heaters use electric coils as opposed to burners and combustion chambers. When turned on the electrical current reaches these coils and burns them in order to generate heat.
