Swannnoa HVAC Company
Probably one of the biggest decisions you will face when building your new home is heating. Do you go with oil or gas? There are pluses and minuses to each and the argument about which one is better will go on, most likely, until the end of time.
Oil heat is unquestionably more safe. That is the big argument supporters of oil heat will give you. The problem with oil heat is that with the rising costs of fuel oil, it costs a fortune, especially if you live in a cold climate. On top of that, oil heat is clearly not as convenient. You need to get constantly supplied and if the truck doesn't come you freeze. It happens.
Gas heat is cheaper, it's cleaner but it can also be dangerous. Gas explodes. Oil doesn't. But let's for argument sake say you decide to go with gas heat because the pluses far outweigh the minuses. What can you do to make sure your gas heat system is as safe as possible?
For starters, make sure the system itself is installed by a professional Swannnoa heating contractor. Don't do this yourself. Make sure the system itself is top quality. Don't skimp in this area. Natural gas is nothing to fool around with. The last thing you want is to have your home blow up on you. After the system is installed make sure it is inspected for any gas leaks.
