Most people in c depend on the natural gas lines in their home when they heat anything on the stove, or stay warm during chilly winter months. Many appliances and systems in your home may be powered by natural gas, including water heaters, clothes dryers, and heaters. Even your barbeque or fireplace can be connected to your gas line.
While natural gas is one of the cleanest fuel sources, it comes with its hazards. Natural gas is, of course, combustible (it creates a lot of heat when you burn small amounts). While this is what makes natural gas convenient, it also is what makes it dangerous. The combination of a gas leak and spark or fire source can result in explosions. Sounds dramatic, we know, but that’s what really happens, which is why our team at Quick Quality Plumbing highly recommends you have a professional manages all your natural gas supply needs.
Because natural gas is such a common source of energy, homeowners often overlook it’s numerous benefits. Aside from the number of appliances it can run, natural gas produces 65% less emission than coal, and 25% less than oil. It’s also up to 30% more affordable than coal, and costs half as much as oil. It’s no wonder that natural gas use has largely replaced these older heating methods!
