If your home is already running on natural gas, you’ve made a great choice. If not, consider these reasons to switch:
More affordable: Your family can save an average of $380 per year in Texas by using natural gas appliances instead of electric, so it’s more economical.
Heating your water with natural gas instead of electricity saves an average of $262 per year.
Better performing: Water heater recovery is twice as fast with natural gas vs. electric and a natural gas tankless water heater provides instant hot water on demand.
The air coming from a natural gas furnace is 25 degrees warmer than air from an electric heat pump, so you stay more comfortable.
More reliable: Natural gas pipelines are buried underground so they are less susceptible to severe weather.
Natural gas generators can power all or part of a home, including the air conditioner.
Cleaner: A natural gas home in Texas emits about 1/3 less carbon emissions compared to an all-electric home, so it’s more environmentally friendly.
It produces fewer emissions which lead to greenhouse gas, acid rain, smog, and contamination of fish.
More efficient: Natural gas appliances are on average 2X more efficient than electric appliances, so you can save energy and money.
Natural gas water heating and clothes drying cost is about 1/2 the cost of using electricity.
Innovative: You deserve a clean energy future. We’re working toward that goal with a variety of safe and effective programs and initiatives.
Offering affordable conservation and energy-efficiency programs and corporate initiatives to achieve a net reduction of 70% of operational carbon emissions.
Domestic: About 93% of the natural gas used in the U.S. comes from within U.S. borders.
