Gas Ranges

Why are Gas Ranges more Efficient than Electric Ranges?

The clear winner in the energy efficiency battle between gas ranges and electric ranges is that gas ranges. It takes about three times as much energy to produce and deliver electricity to your electric range. According to the California Energy Commission, a gas stove will cost you less than half as much to operate (provided that you have an electronic ignition–not a pilot light).

Although the government’s Energy Star program, which rates home appliances for energy efficiency, doesn’t rate ranges, buying a gas stove and then following our energy-saving tips can help you spend less each year. The final figure on your annual energy bill will depend on how much time you spend cooking on your stove,

but energy company MGE asserts that you can expect to pay an average of $2.34 per month to run a gas range without a pilot light (based on a gas rate of $1 per them, or 100,000 BTU), compared to $5.94 per month to run an electric range (based on an electric rate of $.14 per kilowatt hour).
