Benefits for Homeowners

Homeowners love cost-saving luxuries. And beyond facilitating sales and increasing home value, including natural gas can provide clients with dozens of immediate and long-term benefits that will ultimately reflect back on you.

Cost-Savings

Natural gas allows homeowners to enjoy various forms of cost-savings, including:

  • Up to 25% in monthly energy savings (when comparing the average natural gas home to its non-gas counterpart)
  • Appliances that operate at up to half the cost of non-gas
  • Longer appliance lifespans with reduced maintenance
  • Up to $1,750 in potential rebates, up to $450 in tax credits and other potential incentives

Superior Reliability

Because natural gas is delivered via underground pipeline, it provides nearly 100% reliable service and enables hurricane-proof comfort—even when the power goes out. Examples of natural gas appliances that continue to operate automatically in the event of a power outage include:

  • Water heaters
  • Ranges
  • Grills
  • Outdoor lights
  • Generators

Improved Lifestyle

Endless hot water, gourmet-quality cooking precision and faster clothes drying—these are just a few of the many lifestyle advantages attributed to the superior performance of natural gas. Plus, homeowners can enhance their everyday lifestyle even further with natural gas outdoor/luxury appliances, such as:

  • Indoor & outdoor fireplaces
  • Generators
  • Outdoor grills
  • Patio & garage heaters
  • Outdoor lights & tiki torches
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers
  • Pool heaters

Green & Domestic

By using America’s own cleaner, greener natural gas, homeowners can feel good about knowing that they’re helping to conserve energy and cut pollution while keeping billions of energy dollars (and countless jobs!) right here at home. In fact:

  • More than 97% of the natural gas we use in the US is produced in North America (approximately 84% is domestically produced while the remaining 13% comes from Canada)
  • Natural gas appliances are up to twice as efficient as their non-gas counterparts
  • Every home that switches to a natural gas tankless water heater can prevent 3,000 lbs. of CO2 from entering the atmosphere every year
