The summertime can be hot, and so hot that you probably don’t need to heat your home, so there’s no better time to consider switching to natural gas than right now! Making the switch to natural gas can lower your energy bill, keep you warm when the power goes out, and even add value to your home. Joseph Frederick and Sons is your number one resource for all your Delaware heating and air needs, and we’d like to let you know how switching to natural gas can be better for your family and your home.
Using natural gas to heat your home produces minimal sulfur dioxide, airborne particulates, and dissolved solids, which can all negatively impact people and pets. A properly operating, and well-maintained natural gas heating system generates nearly no carbon monoxide.
Of the fossil fuels, natural gas is the cleanest burning, plus if you plan to switch to gas in the kitchen as well, advancements in gas-burning appliances have helped to reduce the amount of natural gas used even as it has seen an increase in popularity. Only about 30% of the energy used to heat your home with an electric heating system makes it to your home, resulting in a 70% energy loss. Natural gas heating systems see an energy loss of just about 10%. As you can see, natural gas is about as green as Delaware heating and air can get.
While fuel costs vary from place to place, gas heating is more affordable than electric in most parts of the country. Additionally, a new, high-efficiency gas heating system could qualify you to receive rebates from your gas utility provider.
Switching your home to natural gas can seem like a big switch, but there are plenty of reasons to switch and benefits to doing so.
