    'furthermore' has a more serious, formal sense.
    So:
    A wood burning fire gives just as much warmth as gas, and moreover, it's cheaper.

    A soldier is being reprimanded:
    "As your commanding officer, I am ordering that, as punishment, you will peel potatoes in the kitchens, and furthermore, that you be confined to barracks for a period of one month."
