A natural gas heating system is the heart of your home.
Warmth and comfort - You can depend on it to keep you warm and comfortable inside, regardless of the temperature outside. Natural gas furnaces deliver warm air without the cool draftiness often associated with the air delivered with electric heat pumps. Gas-heated air is about 110 to 130 degrees, which is warmer than your body temperature, so you feel comfortable. Besides providing warmth and comfort, using natural gas to heat your home can also save you energy and reduce your carbon footprint.
Energy and Money Savings - If you have a 15-year-old or older central forced-air furnace, you can save on your heating costs by replacing it with a new, energy-efficient model. New, energy-efficient gas heating systems are up to 98% efficient, and the ENERGY STAR® logo will help you identify energy-efficient heating equipment.
While some ENERGY STAR® qualified heating products may cost more initially, they can generate 15-30% lower energy bills.
The reasons to choose natural gas have always gone beyond performance. Natural gas heating assures you of comfort that's affordable and reliable. It's preferred by homeowners who want to help save energy, reduce emissions, and protect the environment.

Types of equipment
Natural gas heating systems come in a variety of sizes and prices. Here are three of the most common types of natural gas heating systems:
There are two basic types of forced-air furnaces: packaged systems which contain the heating and cooling components in one unit, and split systems in which the heating and cooling units are separate.
Typically mounted on the roof of your home, a packaged system (often referred to as a gas pack, twin, dual, or combination system) includes natural gas heating and electric cooling components in one unit.
If you have a heating unit which is separate from your cooling unit, then your home is equipped with a split system. The furnace is usually located in your garage, attic, or an interior closet and the cooling unit is located outdoors, often on the ground.
