Why Choose Natural Gas

Natural gas is a safe and economical choice for heating your home and powering your major appliances and has been a part of our city since 1879.

Top three reasons to consider natural gas for your home or business:

  1. Cost-efficiency -  Natural gas is the most economical fuel choice for heating your home in Kitchener. When you shop for natural gas appliances, you can compare EnerGuide labels and look for ENERGY STAR-qualified models for the highest energy efficiency. For example, there are natural gas furnace units that can achieve over 95% efficiency, saving you a bundle in heating costs.
  2. Environmentally friendly - With growing concerns about greenhouse gases and global warming, consumers are turning to natural gas for their homes and businesses. Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. When burned, it releases less carbon monoxide than coal and oil, for cleaner air both inside and outside of your home.
  3. Versatility - Natural gas can be used for more than just home heating. A licensed natural gas service professional can easily add connections for indoor natural gas appliances such as a dryer, fireplace, water heater, or range.  Outdoor appliances such as a barbecue or pool heater can also be converted to natural gas. All of these can be done with little inconvenience or disturbance to your home. Natural gas can provide an instant and efficient source of energy for most of your household needs.
