Frequently Asked Questions About Ranges:
Should I use gas or electric?
The type of range, whether gas or electric, can many times depend on the installation process. When considering a gas range, it is important to keep in mind where your gas line connection is in regards to where you wish to position the range. The same idea can apply to electric appliances and outlet availability or, if needed, electrical outlet installation. The best method is to contact someone experienced in range installation to determine which connection will work best for your establishment.
Gas fueled ranges are all about speed. They heat up more quickly than electric models, and are more cost effective upon purchase. They also normally offer a higher maximum temperature. They are even cheaper to buy. But sometimes, electrical ranges are the only option due to city codes involving gas versus your location. A good general rule is, when you have the option to go with gas, gas is the better all-around choice.
