- Gas appliances run the risk of filling your home with carbon monoxide (CO). CO is an odorless, tasteless and colorless gas that is omitted by gas appliances and can be deadly to those who are exposed to it in lethal levels.
- Electric appliances run the risk of a fire or electrocution if they are not installed correctly or are malfunctioning. Many electric appliances are at risk of being a safety hazard as they age, and a simple spark from a frayed wire can set off an electric fire.
Homeowners will eventually be presented with the option to choose between gas appliances or electric appliances. Both options come with their own pros and cons – but which is safer for your home?
