Why go all-electric?

Replacing gas furnaces, water heaters, ranges, and other appliances with all-electric alternatives has many benefits.

  • Efficient: Electric appliances are becoming increasingly efficient. Equipment like heat pumps can be up to 300% more efficient than a gas-powered furnace.
  • Clean: Electric appliances produce no combustion byproducts. By going all-electric, you can minimize your exposure to harmful gases and combustion byproducts associated with gas-powered appliances.
  • Safe: Electric appliances eliminate the danger of gas leaks.
  • Environmentally Friendly: As more and more renewable power generation from sources like solar panels and wind turbines are added to the grid, all-electric appliances emit fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to natural gas alternatives.
