Benefits of Natural Gas for heating your home

Looking for a weapon to beat the cold and costs of approaching “Old Man” Winter? I highly recommend natural gas as your weapon of choice. There are many benefits of natural gas for home heating in the Dover and Seacoast real estate markets.

Natural gas is very affordable. It costs less to heat your home with natural gas than electricity. Natural gas is also cheaper than buying wood for your wood stove! Furthermore, natural gas prices have remained more stable than oil prices. (www.nwnatural/Residential/BenefitsOfGas/Affordable)

Due to natural gas being a regulated utility, you receive your natural gas “at cost” and you pay the same price for it as every other natural gas customer. In fact, you only pay for the delivery and amount of natural gas you use. (Ibid.)

Natural gas is highly abundant and energy efficient. Natural gas is more plentiful and available than most renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind and biofuels. In fact, natural gas is on track to replace oil and coal as your energy sources. Furthermore, natural gas uses 92 percent of the energy when used directly for water and space heating as opposed to electricity, which uses 32 percent. (

Natural gas is also the cleanest and safest fossil fuel. When burned, natural gas produces 45 percent less carbon dioxide than coal, 30 percent less than oil and 15 percent less than wood. Natural gas is also beneficial to your family’s health by producing nearly zero carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and airborne particulates. (Ibid.)

The evidence of the benefits to natural gas is incontrovertible. Act now and buy natural gas for your Dover home. Protect you and your family from fast-approaching “Old Man” Winter. You will not regret it.
