If you want to get the most out of your Brampton homes when you sell them later on, up the road, kitchen and bathroom renovations are the ones that will net you the biggest returns. No kitchen remodel is complete without an update of the old appliances, with the stove being one of the key pieces that needs your attention. But when you're trying to predict what would be best for your needs and what buyers will want in the future, how do you choose between gas and electric? This article will give you the information you need to decide.
Often the utility setup of your home will make your decision for you. It is much easier to just go along with how your Ajax houses have been wired than to retrofit to incorporate the other, as both gas and electric stoves need special fittings. Gas stoves of course require gas lines and an external store of propane, while electric stoves need heavy duty 240 volt outlets and cannot be plugged into a normal household outlet. Check your setup before you decide.
If you're building Toronto Beaches real estate from scratch, of course or doing a complete rewire or remodel, you can go with either, so your choice becomes more difficult. If price is a factor, electric stoves have the advantage. Electric ranges can be as much as several hundred dollars cheaper than their gas counterparts. But if the environment is a factor, you'll have to consider whether your local power plant produces electricity more cleanly than a stove powered by natural gas.
If you plan on doing any sort of professional cooking in the kitchen at your Queens Quay condos, or even if you're just going to cook a lot, you will likely want to choose gas over electric. Professional cooks prefer gas ranges because they heat up much faster than electric ones and they're not limited to a set series of heat intervals on the numbered dial of an electric burner, rather they can turn the heat up as much or as little as they want.
Of course, if safety is a concern for you, you may not want to introduce a gas appliance into your Sutton real estate. With gas comes the possibility of gas leaks, carbon monoxide buildup, and even explosions or fires, so electric stoves are the safer option, even if you get a gas stove that lights electrically rather than needing a match.
