Gas vs Electric Furnaces


When you’re getting a new gas or electric furnace, do yourself a favor and have a certified and licensed technician install it. This mitigates your household’s risk of gas leaks, improper exterior venting, power outages, or electrical fires. Snell’s expertise extends across premium pipe sealing, vent routing, and wiring.

Energy Efficiency

Furnace efficiency depends on how much of the energy your unit utilizes to heat your home. Gas furnace energy efficiency, or annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), is anywhere from 55 to 97% depending on how old the model is. Electrically-powered furnaces achieve a 99-100% rating. We’re always available to provide dependable furnace repair services and perform a consultation to determine the best model for your home.

Upfront Cost

A gas furnace unit costs $3,000 – $4,000 and its average installation fee is $1,500 – $2,000. Meanwhile, the price of an electric furnace is $1,000 – $2,500 and its installation cost is $1,000 – $1,500. However, our team of licensed technicians can provide guarantees and coupons with our furnace repair solutions in Fairfax Station to help you save money.


Gas furnaces are less expensive to operate because gas comes at a lower cost than electricity. However, their maintenance is more expensive—they’re sensitive to corrosion and carbon monoxide leakage. To keep your family safe in Fairfax Station, we can come to perform regular maintenance on your gas and even electric furnace (albeit less often) for your peace of mind.


Their vulnerability means gas furnaces need replacing more often. Gas furnaces last 10-20 years and electric ones last 20-30 years. If your furnace has been breaking down at an increasing rate, call us at (703) 543-9649 to discuss the best replacement for your home.

Air ConditionerLife Cycle of a Central Air Conditioner

A central air conditioning unit can last for 15 to 20 years after it’s installed. Once you need a replacement, you might find that your model’s been discontinued. This could be the case even if you could get replacement parts from or contract honored by your manufacturer over the years. Snell technicians maximize your unit life with our delicate air conditioning repairs, or install a modern, high-efficiency central air conditioner if it’s time for a new one.

How a Central AC System Operates

Your air conditioning system is fueled by a cooling agent called refrigerant. This gas agent is moved through condenser coils in your outdoor condensing unit by a compressor. Here, it’s chilled and condensed into a liquid state. Next, it passes through evaporator coils, where it cools the coils and returns to a gaseous state. The air circulating around your house is cold because a circulation fan blows over the cold evaporator coils before entering the ventilation system. This airflow goes on until the home lowers to your desired temperature. We offer air conditioning repair services to homes in Fairfax Station for cracked evaporator coils and damaged compressors. Give our team a call at (703) 543-9649 to receive support with an air conditioner problem.

Water Heater ServicesHow Gas and Electric Water Heaters Operate

The water in your water heater begins heating up when the thermostat notices the temperature has dropped below the threshold. If you have a gas water heater, gas is released from a valve to combust at the burner under the tank bottom. This only occurs if the thermocouple sensor concludes the pilot light is working.

Electric water heaters include two heating elements that are warmed up electrically and then inserted into the tank water. Heating for both water heater types continues until the thermostat notifies the system to stop once the target temperature setting is reached.
