Fueling the Future with Natural Gas 

 What's New

Natural gas for your business
When you choose natural gas for your operation’s facilities and transportation, you not only save energy, you can also save money for years to come.

 

Savings
Natural gas costs about half as much as other fuels and is the best choice for your budget. It’s simply a better value, especially when considering the efficiency of the equipment. 

 

Comfort
With reliable natural gas service, there’s no need to worry about surprise power outages that may create disruptions. Natural gas equipment is available for nearly every application with a wide range of benefits.

 

Environment
Natural gas is the right choice for a cleaner tomorrow. As a primary fuel that can be used in its natural state rather than undergoing a pollution-producing, energy-wasting conversion process, natural gas leaves about half the carbon footprint than electricity.

 Water Heater Maintenance

Natural gas water heaters will save most businesses about 50 percent over electric and maintaining them can help prevent costly leaks.


Here are a few tips:

  • Keep the burner area free of dust and dirt.
  • Store combustibles or flammables such as gasoline or paint away from the water heater.
  • A gurgling noise when the burner is on signals damaging sediment buildup. To keep lime deposits and sediment from building up, starting when it’s new, every month drain several pails of water from the drain valve near the bottom of the water heater.
  • If the pilot light on the water heater goes out, shut off gas to the appliance. Do not use tools to turn the gas valve; use hand pressure only. Relight according to the manufacturer’s instructions, usually found near the control on the lower part of the tank. If you have difficulty relighting, call a qualified appliance service technician or qualified heating contractor.
