The Benefits of Gas Appliances
There are a lot of benefits of using gas appliances such as hot water heaters, ranges, and gas fireplaces. The biggest plus is the efficiency of gas for heating anything. This is because you put the heat straight to the purpose of heating, instead of electricity which is made by using gas to create heat to turn a turbine to make electricity. The effect of always losing some of the energy along the way, in the form of lost heat or resistance in the electrical lines means that it will always cost more to use electricity to heat things. Therefore, gas water heaters, furnaces, stoves, and ovens all cost more to operate when they are electric.
When it comes to cooking, gas has added benefits in the way of temperature control. Electric stoves have limited settings, and the whole eye is on whether your pot is large or small. Gas flames can be tuned to the proper setting that your heat stays under the pot where it does the most good. Food cooks faster, and some people would say better, with gas appliances. Gas grills have the conveniences of keeping the flame the whole time you cook at an even setting, verses charcoal which is as likely as not to cook too hot at first and not hot enough later. Not only that, but the mess of the charcoal is avoided as well.
The gas appliances have many pluses, however you must have a gas line to each appliance to run it.
