Building better with natural gas

How do you capture more than 70% of your market instantly? Build homes with preferred features that customers want - natural gas appliances.

According to a recent consumer energy preference survey, more than 70% of homeowners prefer natural gas for heating, water heating, and cooking. By building homes with natural gas appliances, you meet growing customer demand and increase homeowner satisfaction.

Why is natural gas the preferred energy source?

  • Efficient and economical - the best energy value
  • Secure - underground delivery system
  • Abundant - plentiful domestic supply
  • Clean - cleanest-burning fossil fuel emitting fewer greenhouse gases
  • Reliable - never runs out
  • Safe and easy to use
  • Modern - enhances today's lifestyles

Increase profits. Sell homes faster.

According to a 2010 Special Report prepared by the National Association of Home Builders, new single-family homes with natural gas heating and other natural gas appliances sell on average with 6% higher pricing than homes built for the same electric appliances.

The report also shows that an overwhelming majority of builders agree that new homes with natural gas equipment generally sell quicker than a new home without any.
