Get Natural Gas Appliances
There are many ways that natural gas appliances can help you save money while adding comfort, convenience, and efficiency.
Choose natural gas for your new or remodeled home for warm, safe, and energy efficient heat. According to the American Gas Association, natural gas furnaces and boilers are up to 97% efficient, and save you around $200 annually compared to electric water heaters. They also provide more consistent heat and cost much less to operate than older furnaces. Heating is the single biggest use of energy in a home. Natural gas is comfortable, clean, reliable, and easy on your budget.
Gas Ranges and Ovens
Natural gas is the top choice for professional chefs, and it’s no wonder! Gas ranges and ovens turn on and off instantly, and they provide even heat distribution for faster cooking and baking. A natural gas range can save you up to $30 per year in operating costs compared to an electric model. Natural gas ranges tend to have longer shelf lives and lower operating costs than electric ranges, making gas ranges 10 percent to 30 percent more affordable than electric alternatives. Cook like a pro with fast and safe performance in your kitchen.
Choose a natural gas water heater for lower operating costs and quicker recovery time. While it may be tempting to buy an inexpensive electric water heater, the least expensive water heaters are often the most expensive to operate. A high efficiency gas water heater may cost a little more than a basic electric water heater, but could save you up to $350 per year in operating costs. Natural gas water heaters, both storage and tankless models, provide more hot water on demand and provide serious savings in the long run.
According to the American Gas Association, natural gas furnaces and boilers are up to 97% efficient, and save you around $200 annually compared to electric water heaters. Plus, while an electric water heater produces about 2.8 tons of carbon dioxide annually, a natural gas water heater emits only 1.5 tons, making it the clear green choice.
Gas dryers are easier on your clothes and your budget. Moist heat from natural gas is gentle on fabrics, resulting in softer sheets and towels, with brighter colors. Natural gas dryers cost a little more than electric models, but they can save you up to $75 per year in operating costs compared to those electric dryers. For better performance and energy cost savings, a natural gas dryer is the clear choice.
Who doesn't love snuggling up to a warm fire on a chilly day? With a natural gas fireplace, that cozy atmosphere is as easy as flipping a switch. There’s no need to haul wood or clean up ashes with convenient gas logs and fireplaces. Plus, when the power is out, a gas fireplace may provide instant light, and a vent-free unit can provide heat for your family. For about 30 cents per hour, a gas fireplace is easy on your budget while providing safe supplemental heat and light for your living space.
Natural gas grills make outdoor cooking easy and affordable. They’re always ready to go, even during a power outage. Never worry about running out of propane or charcoal again. Natural gas grills are environmentally friendly, too, with reduced emissions and fuel odors compared to charcoal grills. At about half the cost of propane, natural gas is the smart choice for affordable and convenient backyard cooking.
Add warmth and ambiance to your outdoor living space. Natural gas fire pits are a great addition to any deck, patio, or outdoor area. They don't produce smoke that will irritate airways, and you don't have to worry about flying embers that could ignite surfaces. Also, since natural gas is much more affordable than other fuels, like propane, you can have a cozy outdoor space for a fraction of the price.
