When people think of plumbers, they almost always think of water pipes. But plumbers work on different types of pipes as well. For example, an important service that we provide as plumbers in Southern California is the installation (as well as repair) of natural gas pipes. If your home already uses natural gas in some way, you may want to have additional piping put in so you can make a greater use of it.
Natural Gas Is an Excellent Resource
Any home that has access to a municipal natural gas line should take as much advantage of it as possible. Here are some of the reasons to put natural gas to work for you:
- Cost: Natural gas is a less expensive energy source than electricity or other types of heating oils, such as propane. If you use electrical heating in your home, changing over to a gas-powered heating system can mean significant energy savings.
- Environmentally friendly: Natural gas burns cleanly, meaning there are few harmful emissions. It also reduces reliance on coal-produced electricity.
- Easily available: Unlike heating oils, which must be delivered to a home, natural gas comes right from a municipal supply. It’s there whenever you need it.
- Domestically produced: Natural gas is a domestic product, helping lower our dependence on foreign oil.
How can you increase the ways that you use natural gas for your home? First, make sure that you have a gas-powered stove and oven in your kitchen. Not only will this save money, but it’s much easier to prepare meals than relying on electrical heating. (Just ask a professional chef!) You should also consider a gas-powered tankless water heater—one of the best way to lower utility bills around the year in California—and a gas-powered clothes dryer.
