Natural Gas Benefits

Natural gas is key for lower energy bills. It also unlocks a higher level of value and performance that can be seen everywhere from increased comfort to a smaller carbon footprint.

Economical

• Homes with natural gas save around 25% on their monthly energy costs (For commercial customers, the savings are even more substantial)
• Natural gas tankless water heaters provide up to 50% in water heating energy savings alone
• Natural gas provides additional long-term benefits such as increased re-sale value, longer appliance lifespans and reduced maintenance costs
• Appliance rebates help homes and businesses kick-start the savings even sooner

Eco-Friendly

• Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel and can cut a home’s carbon footprint by nearly half
• While natural gas provides more than 90% usable energy upon delivery, non-gas only provides 27% of its original energy by the time it reaches the consumer
• Replacing a traditional non-gas water heater with a natural gas tankless can reduce 3,000 lbs. of CO2 from the atmosphere every year

Reliable

• Natural gas is delivered via underground pipeline, providing nearly 100% reliable service
• Homes and businesses with natural gas can continue to use hot water, cook, and maintain other basic comforts/operations—even when the power goes out
• Over 97% of the natural gas used in the U.S. comes from North America, which helps keep energy dollars home and contributes to a secure, independent energy future

Superior Performance & Comfort

• Natural gas provides more everyday advantages, including endless hot water, more efficient space heating, gourmet-quality cooking precision, and faster drying laundry
• Natural gas appliances are more energy-efficient and cost less to operate than their non-gas counterparts
• More than 70% of homebuyers prefer natural gas appliances, largely because of their superior quality and appearance, on top of more extensive features and capabilities
