How to Select a Natural Gas Company

December 11th, 2012

We’re squarely in the middle of the cold season here in Wyomissing, PA (where UGI EnergyLink is located). Temperatures are only expected to drop in the coming weeks and months. Whether you live in the capital-city, or Lancaster City, you’ll want to ensure that you and your family are kept as warm as possible throughout Pennsylvania’s winter months. An excellent way to do this is by switching to natural gas (if you haven’t done so already)—you can lock in a lower rate and keep your family warm all winter long.

Why Should You Choose Natural Gas?

While you may currently use oil or propane for your home-heating, natural gas heating produces heat that is between 25 and 35 degrees warmer. Also, natural gas heating produces heat that is more efficiently distributed throughout a home. This means an end to those pesky and inconsistent hot and cold zones you may have experienced in your home. If your favorite corner or room happens to be much colder than the rest of your home, switching to natural gas will fix this problem—once and for all.

So what’s the catch? Will you lose money by changing to natural gas heating? Unlikely! If you currently rely on oil or propane to heat your home, you can actually save between 10 and 20 percent on your energy bill by switching to natural gas heating. Natural gas heating even requires less maintenance than other heating sources, resulting in long-term savings. As icing on the cake, domestically abundant natural gas is delivered to your home through reliable underground pipelines, which eliminates the possibility of service disruptions due to winter storms or power outages.

Selecting a Reliable PA Natural Gas Supplier

Are you convinced yet that natural gas home heating is right for you? Good. Now, it’s time for you to select a reliable natural gas company to do business with. Consider the following when making the choice:

Reputation of the Supplier

You must consider a natural gas company’s reputation before signing up for its services. UGI EnergyLink has reliably supplied and delivered natural gas locally and globally for over 127 years. We’re the natural gas company of choice for over 30,000 residential and commercial customers in over nine eastern states.

You can be confident doing business with us—we’re one of the most credible, helpful, and highly experienced natural gas companies in Pennsylvania. We pride ourselves in delivering outstanding services in a professional manner.

Availability of Multiple Pricing Options

When selecting a natural gas company, you’ll want to choose one that offers flexibility in terms of pricing options. As a result of natural gas deregulation in Pennsylvania, UGI EnergyLink is able to offer consumers a pricing choice between fixed and variable rates and some other options too!

For example, if you live on a strict budget, a fixed rate option allows you to enjoy peace of mind and stability. This option safeguards you from sudden (and often unexpected) natural gas price increases. If you prefer a more flexible option, select our variable rate pricing.

Ease of Transition

It’s important to select a natural gas company that offers a smooth conversion process. If you already have natural gas lines installed in your home, excellent! Switching to UGI EnergyLink involves filling out a simple enrollment form—provide some basic information and you’ve got us (and our great pricing options) on your side. In Pennsylvania’s cold winter temperatures, you can’t afford a disruption of service for heating your home—and UGI EnergyLink avoids that.

If you use a different type of fuel to heat your home, you’ll need to have pipelines installed before you can switch to natural gas. Call your local utility provider to determine if there is a natural gas pipeline near your home. An experienced contractor must properly install your pipelines and hook them up to your home as well as the main pipeline. Just think about the added comfort and extra savings you’ll get to enjoy as a result!
