The overall use of natural gas has steadily increased, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Natural gas offers an array of benefits to not only residential but commercial users too; so if you’re wondering if you should make the switch, look over all of the benefits.

Environmentally Friendly

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel, burning far fewer carbon emissions than any of the others. By switching to natural gas you can reduce your personal carbon footprint without having to give up any usage of energy.


The cost of natural gas has steadily decreased over the last few years. Even with the price of oil decreasing, there is no guarantee that it won’t skyrocket back to an unreasonable price range. Some companies even offer rebates on appliances when switching from oil to natural gas.


Appliances that use naturals gas, compared to electricity, tend to work faster. Heating systems, clothes dryers, etc. will all work at an increased pace without losing their efficiency. The delivery of the gas is also effective with only 10 percent becoming lost in the process, compared to electricity with about 70 percent of it becoming lost.


Most of the natural gas that is used in the U.S. is also produced domestically. The production of the gas has created almost three million jobs and is putting money into our own economy. This has lead to a decrease in the dependence of foreign oil, allowing the U.S. to focus on sustaining itself with its own energy supply.

The benefits of natural gas far outweigh the benefits of all other fossil fuels.
