The Benefits of Natural Gas at Carnes Crossroads
May 19, 2014 | Real Estate
Carnes Crossroads is a natural gas community: Every home throughout every neighborhood has direct connections to the community’s natural gas lines, with service provided by South Carolina Electric & Gas. What does this mean for the homeowner? Natural gas can translate into convenience, efficiency, savings and enhanced lifestyle options in your home.
Whether you’re cooking on the stovetop or in the oven, natural gas allows for faster, more precise heating. With a gas flame, you don’t have to wait for the burner to warm up or cool down, making it a more cost-effective option. And if the electricity goes out, you can still heat water and cook. A
Better Option for Heating
Energy-efficient natural gas furnaces heat homes quickly and provide heat up to 25 degrees warmer than electricity. Gas heating systems also have a longer lifespan and require less maintenance. And with gas, you also have the option of adding gas logs and fireplaces, an environmentally-friendly way to add warmth and ambiance to any room with a fireplace.
A Better Way to Heat Water
Natural gas water heaters heat water 50% faster than most electric models, giving you plenty of hot water whenever you need it – even when the power goes out. And gas water heaters are easier to maintain, with parts that typically last longer, saving on long-term maintenance costs.
Natural gas amenities can transform your home’s outdoor areas into true outdoor living spaces by supplying the energy for gas fire pits and all kinds of gas grills. And natural gas lanterns provide atmospheric outdoor lighting that doesn’t create harsh shadows or attract bugs the way electric lights do.
