Everything You Need To Know About Natural Gas

June 11, 2015

Natural gas is a flammable gas that’s comprised of mainly methane and other hydrocarbons. The gas, which is taken from the ground, is naturally occurring and it’s often associated with the petroleum industry. Natural gas is used for a wide range of applications and is an efficient way to cook food and heat buildings. Many industrial applications also benefit from using natural gas.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Natural Gas?

Natural gas is much cheaper than other fuel sources. Compared to the price of gasoline, natural gas can be up to 30% cheaper. This large difference in price has encouraged people to move away from other fuel sources and turn to this highly efficient gas.

Natural gas is one of the most efficient fuels on the planet. It produces 65% fewer emissions than coal, making it better for the environment than many other alternatives.

Natural gas also increases the value of your house, meaning that having it installed is bound to bring you higher returns when you finally decide to sell your home. Because it’s pumped through underground pipelines you also don’t have to worry about it running out or not working.

What Are Some Of The Ways In Which Natural Gas Is Used?

Natural gas is used to produce electricity, meaning it can be used to do just about anything you can think of. It can be used to power up commercial or residential properties, and is often the preferred option for restaurants. Many chefs prefer a gas burner to an electric one when it comes to food preparation.

Natural gas can also have more industrial applications, like fueling forklifts and other equipment, and also be used in the manufacturing of goods.
