Natural gas can power a stove, a water heater, and even a furnace. Having these big appliances in your home powered by a less expensive source of fuel can really make your life better, easier, and happier. To start, you need a gas line installation, if your home does not already have a gas line installed. Then you can really enjoy all of the following.
A Warmer Home
Natural gas burns hotter and provides better heat throughout your home than electricity does. An electric furnace is slow to warm, slower than a gas furnace to distribute heat, and subsequently causes you to crank your heat just to get some warmth. After you have your gas line and gas meter installed, you will begin to notice an automatic difference between how warm your home was on an electric furnace and how warm it is now with a gas furnace.
More Hot Water Faster
Likewise, your gas water heater can heat as much hot water as you need at a much faster rate. All of those times when other people used up the hot water and you ended up in a cold or tepid shower are done. Now you can run a load of laundry, a load of dishes, AND still take a hot shower all at the same time because the gas water heater can keep up with the demand better.
Cook Even When the Power Is Out
While many of your neighbors are desperate for a hot meal but cannot cook because their electric stoves are down with the power, you can keep on churning out hot food. A gas stove will keep on cooking no matter how many days the neighborhood is without power. Who knows? You might even have quite the party at your house when neighbors realize that you can cook when they cannot.
Make Sure Your Contractor Connects All of the New Gas Appliances
If you are adding more than just a gas line to your property, make sure that your contractor attaches all of the gas-powered appliances properly. You do not want to flood your home with natural gas, or have it explode because one of the appliances was not hooked up correctly. It is especially helpful to the contractor if you have purchased all of your gas-powered appliances and have had them delivered to the house prior to the installation of the gas line. Then he/she can install everything all at once.
