Not sure if natural gas is right for you? Here are four reasons to switch today!
- Natural gas is the affordable fuel of choice. Based on energy costs during the 2018-2019 Maine winter heating season, a home that used 700 gallons of fuel oil would have saved approximately $600 if they had used natural gas.
- Natural gas will enhance the value and marketability of your home. According to the National Association of Home Builders, homes fueled with natural gas have a 4% higher resale value compared to homes with fuel oil or propane.
- Natural gas is clean and environmentally friendly. You’ll feel great about the environmental benefits of natural gas, but you’ll also save money on the costly annual maintenance of your existing oil-burning unit.
- Natural gas is reliable and abundant. There’s nothing more reassuring on a cold winter day than knowing your home is always going to be comfortably heated. No need to call the oil company and arrange a delivery, and then pay a large, lump sum to fill your oil tank. Natural gas comes from a distribution system, is always available, never runs out, and you pay for it after you use it.
