Why Natural Gas?

From helping save you money to saving valuable energy, natural gas provides many benefits:

Natural Gas is Better for the Environment

  • Natural gas emits far less chemicals associated with acid rain, smog and greenhouse emissions than petroleum-based fuels
  • The average natural gas home emits 46% less carbon than its non-gas counterpart
  • Replacing a non-gas water heater with a natural gas tankless water heater prevents approximately 3,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere every year

Natural Gas is Efficient

  • Natural gas reaches your home directly at more than three times the efficiency of non-gas energy
  • While natural gas provides up to 90% usable energy, up to 78% of non-gas’ original energy is already wasted by the time it is delivered to your home

Natural Gas is Economical

  • Natural gas appliances cost up to half as much to operate as their non-gas counterparts
  • Homes with the four major natural gas appliances save an estimated 25%* on energy costs every month

Natural Gas is Reliable

  • Natural gas is delivered to your home via an underground pipeline and provides nearly 100% reliable service
  • Homes with natural gas can still cook and use hot water** — even when the power goes out

**In the event of a power outage, a natural gas tank-style water heater continues to operate automatically while a tankless water heater requires a simple battery.

Natural Gas is Domestic

  • Over 97% of the natural gas used in the United States is produced in North America (approximately 84% is domestically produced while the remaining 13% comes from Canada)
  • The direct use of natural gas can help reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil — working to keep over $1 billion energy dollars (and countless jobs) home every month
  • America’s current natural gas supply is set to last well into the next century with a worldwide supply thought to be more plentiful than oil
