COMFORT 
Natural Gas is Better 

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.

Heating
When you choose natural gas equipment for heating your business, you are choosing a source that's reliable, consistent, economical and comfortable.

Water Heating
Water heats two to three times faster with natural gas than electricity so there’s less waiting and less energy wasted.

Cooking
Precision control, efficiency and speed make natural gas the preferred choice for professional chefs. In fact, 91 percent of cooking is with natural gas compared to electricity.

Other applications
Commercial and industrial applications include humidity control, energy recovery, processing and more.

ENVIRONMENT 
Gas is better for our environment. 

Natural gas is the right choice for a cleaner tomorrow. And more and more, businesses are becoming savvy about how their choices impact the environment. 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. See a side by side comparison.

Compared to electricity, natural gas releases:

  • Less than half the amount of carbon dioxide (a major greenhouse gas)
  • Almost no sulfur dioxide (a major cause of acid rain and haze)
  • Less than one-third the amount of nitrogen oxides (the primary cause of smog)
  • Zero mercury emissions (makes some fish unsafe to eat)
