Why Natural Gas?
Natural gas is one of the cleanest, safest, and most useful forms of everyday energy. Natural gas is a fossil fuel that is formed when thousands of buried plants and animals are compacted and exposed to intense heat. It is found hundreds of feet below the earth’s surface, usually beneath reservoirs. There are many benefits compared to using oil to heat your building this season, including:
- Affordable—natural gas is a domestic product right here in the northeastern United States. Because there are no overseas shipping costs, natural gas tends to be more affordable than other heating sources, which can lower your heating bills!
- Reliable—unlike oil, natural gas is readily available. Oil requires delivery service at least once a year, whereas natural gas involves piping directly to your home or commercial building so you never have to worry about scheduling delivery service.
- Clean— natural gas releases 45 percent less carbon dioxide than any other widely available fuel source. Because natural gas is a clean fossil fuel, you will help the environment by using fuel that emits cleaner debris compared to oil.
- Energy efficient—natural gas can heat a home or building to the same temperature while using less energy. This not only effects your equipment but it can also affect your energy bill!
