Why Choose Natural Gas
Natural gas typically costs less than heating oil, propane, and electricity for home/commercial space and water heating. Natural gas burns cleaner than any other fossil fuel and emits less greenhouse gas (GHG) than fuel oil, propane, or electricity.
Natural gas is versatile – it can be used to fuel almost any indoor or outdoor heating application.
For many consumers, choosing natural gas over other energy sources is, well, natural: Natural gas appliances cost less to operate than electric appliances. Natural gas dryers dry clothes quicker and are less expensive to operate than electric dryers. Natural gas hot water heaters typically heat water twice as fast as electric heaters and at lower cost. Natural gas furnaces last longer than electric heat pumps and deliver heat that is warmer.
Most professional chefs insist on cooking with natural gas because it offers even, consistent heat and exceptional temperature control. Natural gas ranges, cooktops and ovens offer that same controllable heat with the turn of a dial.
Natural Gas Benefits
Choosing natural gas for your home offers many benefits and advantages that will help you save money, improve the environment and increase your comfort. Whether you currently are using heating oil, propane, or electricity, switching to natural gas is the natural choice for heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying, fireplaces, BBQs and outdoor patio heaters.
