Natural Gas Use During the Holiday Season

December 1st, 2014

The 2014 holiday season is upon us, which means Pennsylvania business owners are finalizing 2014 numbers and gearing up for 2015. As a business owner, there’s no better time to save money than during the holiday season. Not only is natural gas a reliable fuel selection for your Pennsylvania business, it is one of the most cost-effective fueling options on the market.

Keep reading to learn how Pennsylvania businesses use natural gas during the holiday season and how your company can lower its utility costs in 2015.

How Pennsylvania Businesses Use Natural Gas

In Pennsylvania the winter holidays bring wintry weather and extremely cold temperatures. For business owners, this often means turning the thermostat up in order to heat your office, storage facility, and warehouse, along with powering any natural gas appliances your company may own.

Natural Gas for Commercial Heating & Cooling

If your business owns a commercial furnace, there is a likely chance it is fueled by natural gas. As temperatures dip in the Commonwealth state and the snowflakes start to fall, your heating bills will increase if you don’t pay close attention on your natural gas use. In order to keep your storefront, office, warehouse, or storage facility at a comfortable—and affordable–temperature for customers and employees during the 2014 holiday season, we recommend setting your thermostat to a consistent temperature—usually between 65 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit, and no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent frozen pipes.

Natural Gas for Commercial Kitchen Appliances

As the holiday season comes into full swing, many restaurants and commercial kitchens will be preparing to serve a variety of holiday appetizers, entrees, and, everyone’s favorite, dessert! Don’t own a restaurant? Almost all businesses use gas powered kitchen appliances for everyday activities, too, like lunch breaks for your employees. Some commercial kitchen appliances fueled by natural gas are:

  • Ovens
  • Ranges
  • Fryers
  • Broilers
  • Water heaters
  • Dishwashers
  • And more!
