With any decision you make it’s best weight up the pros and the cons. First up the pros of choosing Natural Gas.
Making the choice between natural gas and electricity is not easy and the right choice for you may not be the best choice for everyone.
Currently gas is almost always less expensive than electricity, so if the price is your main motivation this can be a big part of the decision-making process. However, while studies show that three-quarters of new home buyers are choosing to have natural gas, retrospectively installing gas is expensive. With this in mind, finding out how much a new gas line would cost if you don’t currently have gas appliances is a good place to start.
Another reason to choose gas is reliability of supply. If power cuts happen often in your area then being able to heat water, heat or cool your home and cook during power cuts can count for a lot.
Lastly, in environmental terms, while natural gas appliances are generally more efficient you can’t switch them to renewable sources in the same way you can electrical devices. Opting for solar panels or a heat pump may turn out to be less expensive and more eco-friendly options in the long run.
