Pennsylvania has become the 2nd largest producer of natural gas in the country. The abundance of this fuel has led to an increased demand for natural gas in homes. So, if you are wondering how you might be able to take advantage of this lower cost fuel in your home l, here are some tips from SaveOnEnergy.Com. Homeowners can:

 

  • Cook with natural gas, which provides better temperature control and uses “significantly less energy than an electric oven”;

  • Use a natural gas water heater, which is “more economical to run”;

  • Cool your home with a gas-powered air conditioning unit that typically requires “lower operating costs than electric AC units and eventually pay for themselves in energy savings’;

  • Light a fire in a gas fireplace, which is much safer than using a wood-burning fireplace; and

  • Dry your clothes with a natural gas clothes dryer, which can save consumers “up to 50 percent in energy costs compared to electric models.”

     

That last one is my favorite!  SaveOnEnergy points out that natural gas dryers are “so efficient you could do two loads of laundry in a natural gas dryer for the price of one load in an electric dryer” and … do it faster. What more could a new homebuyer want?

This is a great read for use of natural gas. The savings you could get by using it can go to other needs. Great info.

I agree with you Leif Price.  If gas is available in your area and you it's time for a new heating system, it is a great time to consider the savings that go with gas!

Oak Island, NC sounds like a nice place, Tom Bailey I am sorry that natural gas is not a commodity in your area.  Thanks for checking in with me.

Dear Joy,

Gas is not the end-all, be-all. You could also use a ground source heat pump (a few hundred per year to run) & a solar panel array with a battery to make your electric high efficiency appliances run for little after the initial installation costs. Works best, if you plan to stay awhile.
