SANTA ANA, CA, August 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- While shopping for their kitchen upgrade or kitchen remodel, customers often have to make the choice between a gas and electric range. Both options offer differences in price, electricity use and the process by which they cook.
The infographic Gas Ranges Vs. Electric Ranges clearly defines the differences and similarities between the two options for consumers who are wondering which one will better fit their needs.
Like the name suggests, gas ranges are hooked up to a gas line and run off of gas. A blue flame is produced on the stovetop and cooks food. On the other hand, an electric range works off of the electricity in the home. The electricity heats up coils or a flat top on the stove top to heat food.
The temperature on a gas stove is easy to control, but gas stoves also generally cost more. If the kitchen doesn't already include a gas line for the stovetop, then the homeowner will have to include installation of one in the cost of a gas stove. However, a gas stove is thought to be more energy efficient, even though the upfront cost to purchase one and install one is more expensive than purchasing an electric range.
Sometimes a homeowner may decide between gas and electric based on what the kitchen is already set up for. This can help someone avoid spending money on prepping the kitchen for a different type of range, such as installing a gas line for a gas stove.
Regardless of which range you choose, remember how important it is to turn on the kitchen range hood while you're cooking to ventilate the air in your kitchen.
