This is a question we get all the time and one that customers are burning to know the answer to. When compared to electric heating systems, gas-burning appliances can seem less safe. While it’s true that a gas-burning system uses combustion when compared to electric systems simply using electricity, this doesn’t mean that gas-burning appliances are inherently unsafe. In fact, there are a lot of safety precautions that protect the owners of gas furnaces.
