Natural Gas Equipment and Appliances
Dependable, Energy Efficient, and Convenient
Simply put, natural gas appliances will save you money. The long-term cost of ownership of any natural gas appliance is far less when compared to any electrical appliance of the same type. Modern natural gas appliances are up to 98% efficient and, on average, use less fuel to achieve the same result as their electric alternative.
Based on identical energy requirements, the average Albertan will pay roughly 2 cents per kWh of equivalent electricity. Compare that to 10 cents per kWh for electricity, and the savings speak for themselves.
A natural gas furnace will keep your home warm and comfortable through the coldest Alberta days. When compared to the costly electrical or propane alternatives, it’s the best choice for affordability and convenience.
A natural gas hot water tank is a great way to ensure hot water is available whenever you need it. You could save thousands of dollars by switching away from an electric tank, and with natural gas, you never have to worry about a cold shower – even if the power is out.
The reliability that comes with natural gas pairs great with one of Alberta’s favourite pastimes – BBQing. Not only is natural gas cheaper in the long run, but you’ll also never have to refill another propane bottle again.
Ask any professional chef who uses natural gas and they’ll tell you, there’s no better way to cook than with the consistent heating of natural gas.
Natural gas dryers aren’t very common these days, but they are worth the trouble to seek out. Because of their efficiency, long term savings with a natural gas dryer can add up to hundreds of dollars over the life of the appliance.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also referred to as cogeneration, is an energy efficient integrated technology that uses natural gas to generate electricity, with heat as a by-product. Facilities that have a continual demand for heat and power will benefit the most from CHP. This includes swimming pools and recreational facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, colleges and universities, hotels, multi-residential buildings, and light industrial facilities.
