Oil vs natural gas heating

Most houses in North America use a central furnace for space heating. In gas or oil fueled furnaces, the fuel is mixed with air and burned. However, most of Canada’s residential space heating is fueled by natural gas, especially as many new homeowners switch out oil heat furnaces in favor of natural gas equipment. Despite the common transition towards natural gas, heating oil tends to burn hotter than natural gas and thus, efficiently heats spaces in a much shorter time. Oil furnaces tend to last much longer than natural gas furnaces.
