Top best answers to the question «Are modern ac units gas or electric»
Is the central air conditioner powered by gas?
- Gas Air Conditioning. The idea of an all-gas system is a misnomer. This is because gas-driven central HVAC systems still rely on some degree of electricity to operate. The furnace is the only unit in the central air conditioning system that is fueled by gas. The condenser is powered by electricity.

A unit with a higher SEER rating means that the air conditioning system will use less energy to provide quality cooling in your home. It is recommended that you have a unit that functions with a 14 SEER or higher to spend less on cooling your home. With a gas installation, there is a little bit more involved than with an electric system.
