Switch To Natural Gas and Save

Do you have an older home that’s racking up big utility bills each month? Natural gas may be a great upgrade to consider. Learn more about the benefits of natural gas below and even more incentives to make the switch.

Cut back on monthly utility bills. It’s estimated that NW Natural customers can cut heating bills in half by using natural gas instead of oil or electric heating sources. Natural gas is a regulated utility, without any costly mark ups, this means you’re only paying for the services associated with getting the gas to your home and the amount of gas you use.

Reduce your carbon footprint.
Natural gas is not only more plentiful and efficient, it’s also one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. If you’re using natural gas in your home, you’re producing 37% less greenhouse gas emissions than a home with electric appliances. Carbon dioxide emissions are 45% less than conventional fuel and 30% less than oil.

Have reliable energy when you need it most. Not only can natural gas be utilized in a power outage, it provides instant fuel for heating large spaces, water, and cooking. Heat can be precisely controlled and produce quick results. A well-maintained natural gas furnace can provide around 20 years of service.

Increase the resale value of your home. More people are looking to make the switch to natural gas and it can be a great selling feature for any home.
