November 2nd, 2016

Considering procuring natural gas services for your residential home in Pennsylvania? Before you get started, or if you’re a first-time natural gas user, there are some things you should know.

What is Natural Gas, and What are its Residential Applications?

Natural gas is, in essence, a flammable fossil fuel in gaseous form. This resource is often used in residential applications, most commonly and traditionally for heating; however, in a modern home natural gas can also be used to supply power to various appliances as well, including stoves and ovens,  generators, water heaters, and many other in-home applications.

Why Should I Choose Natural Gas?

Natural gas for homes can provide many benefits over other fuel sources, including:

  • Cost-effectiveness. Changing from propane or standard electricity can bring your home a much more cost effective energy solution, as natural gas prices are considerably more stable and less costly than propane, and cost less overall versus electricity.
  • Availability. As long as your home has access to natural gas, you’ll always have the power you need to heat your home, cook, have access to hot water, and whatever other applications you choose for its use.
  • Reliability. Gas appliances can, in many cases, continue to operate independently of electrical power, meaning you retain access to critical home functions even in the event of an outage.
  • Versatility. Natural gas can be used for virtually any in-home application, giving you a reliable and effective fuel source that has a very wide range of uses.
