Purchasing a natural gas home is one of the best energy decisions that you can make for your family. You can use natural gas in a number of ways, including, heating and cooking at about half the cost of electricity, according to the Department of Energy.
Cook with Gas. If cooking is your passion or just a part of your daily routine, you’ll enjoy the total control of a natural gas range; perfect for your pasta, steak, stir-fry or delicate sauce. Most professional chefs refuse to cook on anything else. There’s no waiting for the burner to warm up or cool down, which means there is no need to move the pan once the burners are turned off.
Heat Water. Did you know that a typical family of four uses 26,000 gallons of hot water each year? Heating water takes the next biggest bite out of your energy budget after home heating. A natural gas water heater recovers twice as fast as units powered by other fuels, and today’s gas water heaters are way more efficient than models sold just a decade ago.
Fuel your Fireplace. A natural gas fireplace offers convenience and comfort unmatched by other fuels. When you buy a cord of wood, you have to stack and store it. With gas, no splinters, no bugs and gas costs less on average than purchased firewood. A gas fireplace is among the top “must have” amenities.
