Reliable, Energy-efficient and Environmentally Safe
Natural gas is one of the most reliable and cost-effective energy sources. Use natural gas for heating, water heating, cooking, drying and other energy applications such as grilling and pool heating.
Natural Gas Benefits
Natural gas is highly efficient, using more than 90 percent of its energy potential. In fact, it can cost 50 percent less to cook with natural gas versus electricity. It is also the cleanest burning fossil fuel available, making it an environmentally friendly choice. Read more in Natural Living magazine.
