Should You Choose Natural Gas?

Making the decision between gas and electricity is not straightforward and the right choice for you may not be the optimal choice for everyone.

Currently gas is almost always less expensive than electricity, so if the cost is your main motivation this can be a major factor in the decision-making process. However, while studies show that three-quarters of new home buyers are choosing to have natural gas, switching to natural gas comes at a cost. Therefore, 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 that you are less likely to get interruptions in supply. If power cuts are common in your area then being able to heat water, heat or cool your home and cook during power failures can be a big plus.

Finally, the environmental credentials of gas may be relatively short term, as you can’t switch them to renewable sources like you can electrical appliances. Choosing solar panels or a heat pump could be less expensive and more eco-friendly options in the long run.
