Information about Residential Natural Gas in Reading, PA

Your city of Reading, Pennsylvania now has a deregulated natural gas market, but are you familiar with what deregulation is and what it means for you and your home? It means having access to more options and lower rates on residential natural gas service in Reading.

Although you now are able to choose your natural gas provider, leading to potential savings on your monthly utility bills, you may still have some questions about what a deregulated natural gas market means for your hometown.  At UGI EnergyLink, we put our customers and community first and have answered all your questions here!

Should I Choose Natural Gas for my Reading, PA Home?

Many homeowners in Berks County find that natural gas is a much more affordable heating choice than either oil or propane since the natural market in Reading has been deregulated. Natural gas furnaces also require less maintenance and can last up to 20 years, resulting in greater long-term savings. In addition, since your natural gas appliances will be more efficient, you will save even more money! Natural gas furnaces produce heat that is between 25 and 35 degrees warmer than heat produced by other furnaces. They are also far better at evenly distributing heat throughout a space—resulting in a more comfortable living or working environment.

When listing advantages of natural gas in Reading, it’s also important to know that natural gas:

  • Is the cleanest fossil fuel
  • Appliances are more efficient
  • Is domestically abundant
  • Is reliable
  • Can be used everywhere
  • Is an affordable, comfortable heating choice

What Is Natural Gas Deregulation in Reading, PA?

Under natural gas regulation, homes in Reading had only one option when it came to choosing a natural gas provider—the local utility. Natural gas deregulation opens up the market and enables multiple service providers—such as UGI EnergyLink—to compete. The purpose of natural gas deregulation is to lower prices and increase customer satisfaction by introducing competition into the Reading residential market.

With natural gas deregulation, you now have the opportunity to buy your gas from approved natural gas companies other than your traditional utility company. UGI EnergyLink* is a fully licensed natural gas supplier. As one of the largest and oldest fully licensed Berks County natural gas suppliers in Pennsylvania, we can take advantage of market opportunities unavailable to a regulated traditional utility company. This allows us to offer our customers the potential to lower their annual natural gas service bills and enjoy price stability by locking in their monthly rate.

*UGI EnergyLink’s prices are not regulated by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. UGI EnergyLink is not UGI Utilities, and you are not required to buy from UGI EnergyLink in order to receive the same quality of service from your utility.

If your home currently uses another type of fuel, you’ll need to have pipelines installed to convert to natural gas.

Call the local utility provider in Reading to see if there is a natural gas pipeline near your property. This might seem overwhelming, but in the end when you have natural gas in your home, you’ll find the opportunity for savings is worth it!
