Summer is here and you’re enjoying spending more time outside! If you love firing up your barbeque and spending time with family and friends on your deck or patio, you should consider the benefits of installing a gas line to fuel your outdoor appliances. Natural gas is a safe, convenient and cost-effective fuel for your grill, patio heater, gas fireplace and other cooking equipment.
Read the benefits of using natural gas for your grill and outdoor appliances.
You’ll never have to worry about running out of fuel again!
There’s nothing worse than running out of propane in the middle of cooking your dinner on the barbeque! Making regular trips to refill or exchange your empty propane tank is an inconvenience and means less time spent enjoying your backyard. When you have a natural gas hook up in your yard it means your appliances are ready when you are. There is no need to worry about changing the propane tank or if you have a charcoal grill, waiting for coals to heat up before you start cooking.
Natural gas is cheaper than propane.
Whether you’re fueling a grill or keeping your patio warm well into the evening with a patio heater or fireplace, you’ll enjoy substantial fuel cost savings with your natural gas hook ups. According to ATCO Gas, natural gas costs up to six times less than propane.
Natural gas is better for cooking.
Your natural gas grill or other cooking appliance will provide a more accurate cooking temperature compared to its propane fueled counterpart. Not only will you be able to reach the right temperature, the heat will be more evenly distributed so you know everything on the grill will be cooked to perfection every time.
Natural gas is safe.
Natural gas is safe to use. You also have the peace of mind knowing that our local utility company, ATCO Gas, responds to any emergencies 24/7 and makes sure it is continually delivered safely to your home. You do not have this kind of back-up safety service with your propane tanks.
Natural gas is clean.
Natural gas technology is a greener energy solution and it emits fewer greenhouse gasses than other fossil fuels. Not only is this better for the environment overall, it’s also better for the air quality around your home and yard.
Always have a professional gas fitter install your natural gas lines and hook ups.
A certified gas fitter will follow the Gas Code & Standards laid out by our provincial government. If you’re having a natural gas line installed underground outside, a certified gas fitter will ensure all underground utilities are marked before they begin so no lines are disturbed or damaged. They will check over your fuel-burning appliances, checking that they’re operating within the manufacturer’s specifications. Having a professional do the job will ensure gas lines and appliances are installed correctly and that your lines and appliances are running properly, efficiently and safely.
