Our team at Clarksburg Contractors wants to help you make your home the best it can be, and we know that for many homeowners, that goal includes making their home more environmentally friendly. If you are looking for ways to reduce your home’s carbon footprint, a good place to start is by replacing your gas furnace with an electric heating system. In this article, we will go over a few ways that electric heating can reduce your energy consumption.
• Electric Heating Doesn’t Require Fossil Fuels- One of the reasons why switching to electric heating is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint is because this type of heating system does not depend on fossil fuels, but can instead be powered by renewable sources of energy such as wind or solar power. While some people do use fossil fuels to power their furnaces, other options are available, and our technicians can help you find the renewable power you are looking for.
• Electric Heating Doesn’t Produce Carbon Emissions- Another benefit of electric heating systems is that they do not produce carbon emissions. As long as your furnace is powered by renewable energy, you won’t have to worry about its source of power releasing carbon and other contaminants into the atmosphere, and you also won’t have to worry about harmful gases such as carbon monoxide being released into your home.
