What are the Benefits of Switching to Natural Gas?
Natural Gas Is Safe
Gas industry experts have determined that natural gas is incredibly safe. These days, an odor is added into the gas, which allows homeowners to detect any gas leaks or issues with the supply line right away. In addition, gas companies go to extraordinary lengths to keep the supply infrastructure secure, which enables the safe distribution of gas to your home or business. Other types of fuel require trucks to deliver the fuel to a home or business, providing opportunities for spills or accidents natural gas is not subject to. In the event an interior gas line or appliance does develop a problem, Tri-City Heating and Cooling is available 24/7 to ensure the problem is taken care of right away and your home or business is kept safe.
Natural Gas Is Economical & Reliable
Oil to gas conversion provides home and business owners with an economical solution to high heating bills. Obviously, utility prices are subject to many variables, but with the abundance of domestic natural gas production, it is likely prices will remain reasonably stable for many years. That should provide home and business owners with a sense of security as natural gas costs will likely remain lower than competing fuels in coming years.
Natural gas supplies are rarely affected by weather conditions or damage. On the other hand, oil deliveries are easily compromised during severe weather, placing homes and businesses at risk.
Natural Gas Is Environmentally Friendly
Today’s natural gas burns cleaner than in the past. Nitrogen oxide content is significantly lower, reducing the potential for air pollution related to the fuel. There is also no danger of spills contaminating the surrounding soil as is frequently seen with oil. Environmentally conscious consumers generally recognize gas as the better alternative for home heating.
Natural Gas Does Not Require Storage
Another benefit of natural gas is the fact that there is no need for home or business owners to deal with underground storage tanks that are susceptible to leaks. In-home oil tanks tend to leak, which contaminates the surrounding area and leaves unpleasant odors that are difficult to eliminate.
