If you already have a gas line in your house, or are buying a new house you should consider the potential gains of gas appliances and gas household appliances.

A gas home appliance runs on natural gas as the main fuel source. These appliances offer a great alternative to electrically powered goods for heating your home, providing hot water, cooking food and even cooling your home and clothes drying.
Usually you will still need to supply electricity to a gas appliance. The amount of electricity needed will vary from appliance to appliance. For example, a gas cooker will still operate even when there is a power outage, whereas a gas dryer still relies upon electricity.
Gas can be used for more than heating.
Keeping yourself warm with natural gas is generally less expensive than keeping warm using electricity. Savings can be as much as 50% depending on your fuel prices and efficiency.
Gas provides higher air temperatures and offers better reliability.This is a big plus if you if you get power cuts
As well as general heating natural gas is great for a fireplace. With a natural gas fire, you still get all the ambiance and plenty of warmth without the mess.
Natural gas air conditioners can be an effective method to cool your home.
Gas powered air conditioning requires a bigger initial investment but is cheaper on an ongoing basis meaning lower prices in the long term. Higher effectiveness has the added positive impact of reducing your carbon footprint.
There are two types of gas water heaters, non-tank and tank. Gas heaters are more rapid and more efficient than electric water heaters. Tankless water heaters also give a continuous supply. Invaluable if you have a big family that indulges in long showers.
The fact that natural gas lines are almost always underground and protected from the elements means you can still have hot water even if you don’t have electricity.
Everyone has encountered the saying “cooking with gas”. A great marketing strategy created to link gas with effectiveness and efficiency.
Clever marketing or not the phrase stuck because it is accurate. A great many chefs choose natural gas for the ability to control the temperature, and natural gas hobs are also a more cost effective way of converting energy into heat.
Gas might not be the first place your mind goes when it comes to laundry, however, gas clothes dryers have many advantages. Gas Dryers heat the air a few degrees hotter thus clothes dry in a shorter time.
You have to restrict your natural gas use to indoor appliances. When it comes to outdoor entertaining, natural gas is often used for lighting and food prep and even to heat your spa.
Wow your guests before they even reach the front door with outdoor lighting, keep them warm even when the temperature falls and get a meal prepared outside at the perfect temperature, whenever you are ready, and without the having to go to fill up your propane bottles.
Just like indoor water heaters a pool or spa heater will heat the water twice as quickly as an electric heater. And natural gas outdoor heaters set the mood as well as offering comfort for luxurious outside living.
With any decision you make it makes sense to look at the pros and the cons. First up the benefits of choosing Natural Gas.
Making the change between natural gas and electricity is not easy and the right choice for you probably won’t be the best choice for everyone.
Currently natural gas is almost always cheaper than electricity, so if the cost is your main motivation this can be a major factor in the decision-making process. However, while studies show that three-quarters of new home buyers are choosing to have natural gas, retrospectively installing natural gas comes at a cost. Thus, finding out how much a new gas line would cost if you don’t already have one is a good place to start.
Another key advantage of gas is reliability of supply. If power failures are common in your area then having appliances that continue to work during outages can count for a lot.
Finally, in environmental terms, while gas home appliances are generally more efficient you can’t switch them to renewable sources like you can electrical appliances. Installing solar panels or a heat pump could be a better investment and more eco-friendly options in the long run.
