Maximizing Your Energy Budget with Natural Gas Appliances

Did you know that natural gas is much more efficient—and more environmentally friendly—than oil, propane, and even electricity? By using natural gas appliances, you can maximize your energy budget and save even more money, while adding comfort and convenience.

  • Natural Gas Appliances can help save money

Today, over three-quarters of home buyers choose natural gas to heat their newly-built homes. Natural gas appliances are clean, reliable, and easy on your budget. Whether you’re looking to convert to a natural gas furnace, install a new natural gas fireplace, or use other natural gas appliances, you can experience significant savings.

Getting gas appliances doesn't necessarily mean starting from square one. You can actually convert some existing appliances to natural gas. Instead of buying new appliances, you will save even more money while taking advantage of all the benefits that natural gas has to offer.

Most home improvement retailers carry a wide range of gas appliances, and a professional in the store can help you find the best appliances to fit your needs. You should hire a professional plumber or contractor to ensure that your appliances are installed correctly.

There are many types of natural gas appliances available. Some of the most common choices are furnaces and water heaters. Heating is the single biggest use of energy in the home, and today's high-efficiency natural gas appliances are as high as 97% efficient and provide a much more consistent heat than older furnaces. Similarly, a high-efficiency water heater could save you up to $350 per year in operating costs.

There are other ways you can also take advantage of natural gas appliances that add a level of comfort and convenience to your home, all while increasing savings. Gas ranges and ovens turn on and off instantly, and they provide even heat distribution for faster cooking and baking. A natural gas dryer can save you up to $75 per year in operating costs compared to electric dryers. And for about 30 cents per hour, a gas fireplace can provide safe, supplemental heat and light for your living space.

Natural gas appliances can save you money outside of your home, too. With a natural gas grill, for example, outdoor cooking is easy, affordable, and always available, even during a power outage. Natural gas grills are environmentally friendly, too, with reduced emissions compared to charcoal grills at about half the cost of propane. If you're looking to add some ambiance or extra heat outside your house, natural gas fire pits and patio heaters can be a great addition. They don't produce smoke or embers, and they are always ready to go with warmth and ambiance right when you need it.

Convenient, reliable, and efficient—if you're looking to maximize your energy budget, then natural gas appliances are the clear choice.
