Natural gas and electricity are not the same, just as living in a flat or a chalet or living in Murcia or Teruel are not the same.
We’ll tell you the advantages of each heating system, clearly and simply.
Gas heat: cold climate, large house
Generally speaking, natural gas tends to be more efficient and affordable than electricity as a heating system.
But it all depends on your situation: to begin with, if you don’t have access to the piped gas network (which is common in rural areas and separate homes) this is not an option for you.
Despite the great success that gas heating systems have had in Spain, it’s a fact that it gives you more in cold environments and large houses.
In warm climates and/or small flats, you have to weigh not only the area heated but also how much you will pay for installation,the boiler and maintenance.
Advantages of natural gas
- Immediate heat: with a good boiler you can be sure you will never be cold.
- Value for your money: in large houses and/or cold climates your gas bill will be less than your electric bill, especially with a competitive tariff like One Gas.
