- Energy Efficiency: Electric appliances often have higher energy efficiency ratings compared to gas models, which means they consume less energy to perform the same tasks. This can lead to significant savings on your energy bills.
- Improved Indoor Air Quality: Gas appliances can release pollutants and contribute to indoor air pollution. Electric appliances, on the other hand, produce no direct emissions, promoting a healthier home environment.
