For millenia we have taken from nature and now is the time to give back by making very simple and small choices. Here we will learn about how it is a wise idea to switch to natural gas from oil. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it is also great for your wallet too.
Natural Gas in Ontario
Natural gas is the principle energy source of choice for the majority of homeowners in Ontario. According to Statistics Canada, 58% of households in the province of Ontario use natural gas for home heating, water heating, and to fuel large appliances likes ranges and clothes dryers. The majority of homes in Ontario use natural gas instead of electricity or oil as the main fuel source.
Better for Your Wallet
It all comes down to dollars and cents. Natural gas costs homeowners less in energy expenses compared with oil, electricity, and propane. You’ll notice your bills take a big dip from the moment you make the switch. In the current economy where expenses are sky high, a change like this can make a huge difference to quality of life.
