Natural gas costs less to use than other major home energy sources. For example, a high-efficiency gas furnace costs less than half as much to operate as a heat pump, oil furnace, or propane furnace.*

According to the Energy Information Association’s 2017 Energy Outlook, natural gas prices will remain relatively stable for the next 20 years. That means you could see years of continued savings.
If you already have a gas main in front of your house, you may be eligible for a free installation of a gas service line to your home. And when you switch to gas, you can save additional money with BGE equipment rebates. For example, get $270 back if you install a high-efficiency gas furnace.
Reliable and Convenient
Because natural gas is piped directly to your home, it eliminates the need for fuel deliveries, and it frees up space that oil tanks would require. And natural gas is abundant, reliable, and safe: BGE is committed to maintaining a safe and reliable gas system, which begins with helping our customers understand the importance of natural gas safety.
Not only does natural gas fuel your heating system, it fuels many other appliances inside and outside your home. Enhance your indoor living with a gas range, fireplace, clothes dryer, and water heater. Extend your indoor living outside with natural gas lighting, grills, and patio and pool heaters. Note that some of these are non-standard equipment and extra service line charges may apply.
