Natural gas isn’t only great for our country, it’s also great for everyday consumers!
Fracking has made it possible for us to access natural gas like we’ve never been able to access it before, and with above ground water storage tanks and other advances in the industry, fracking is safer and more environmentally friendly. In our last blog, we went over a couple of the many advantages of natural gas for consumers, so if you haven’t already, check it out! Today, we will be finishing up our blog series with these last few advantages of natural gas for consumers:
#8. Natural gas will help you save money.
On average, the cost of heating a home with oil is approximately $1,900, while heating a home with natural gas is only $780. Natural gas averages between 30-50% cheaper than heating oil. While the initial investment of switching to natural gas can be pricey, many gas utility companies offer rebates for switching to gas, which can make it easier to make the switch.
#9. Investing in natural gas heating can increase the value of your home.
If your home currently uses heating oil, then installing natural gas would be a smart choice for you. Not only will you be able to enjoy all of the benefits of natural gas that we’ve already gone over, but it’ll add value to your home and make it easier to sell in the future.
#10. Natural gas makes upgrading and remodeling easier.
As we discussed previously, natural gas is very versatile, which means that upgrading and remodeling will be easier than ever. Whether you want to add in gas appliances or a heated swimming pool, natural gas will help to simplify the process.
