WHY CHOOSE NATURAL GAS?
Choosing natural gas for your home offers many benefits and advantages that will help you save money, increase the value and marketability of your home, improve the environment, and increase your comfort. Whether you currently are using heating oil, propane, or electricity, switching to natural gas is the clear choice for heating your home and fueling other appliance like your water heater, clothes dryer, stove, and fireplace.
Natural gas is affordable. Natural gas costs less than fuel oil, propane or electricity to heat a home. In addition, natural gas supplies are domestic, abundant and prices are expected to remain low for the foreseeable future.
Natural gas burns clean and it’s reliable. Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel and it’s always available and never runs out. There is no need to call the fuel oil or propane company to arrange a delivery, and you pay for natural gas after you use it.
Natural gas is safe. Properly installed and used, all major types of energy are safe. But it’s important to note that natural gas produces about half as much carbon monoxide as does oil when burned. And, because it’s lighter than air, natural gas dissipates quickly in the unlikely event of a leak.
