Fact: natural gas costs less than it did 10 years ago.

What does that mean to you?

Natural gas is clean, safe and reliable. And it continues to deliver the best value by far for your energy dollar.

#

For the past 10 years, while the cost of living has gone up, natural gas rates have come down.

#

Heating your home and water with natural gas (instead of electricity, oil or propane) saves up to $2,500 a year.

#

New discoveries of massive deposits here in North America will keep natural gas prices low for another 10 years or more.

#

Over that same period, the price of electricity is expected to increase by over 40 per cent.

#

Unlike electricity, natural gas is the same low price no matter what time of day you use it.


Energy experts agree that natural gas will continue to be the most affordable fuel into 2025 and beyond. Visit uniongas.com/residential for more information about your best energy value.

Locate underground lines before you dig

Do you know where all the utility lines are under your property?

There could be a maze of hydro, natural gas, phone and cable lines just beneath the surface of your yard. Digging in the wrong place - even with a simple garden shovel - could create a safety hazard or disrupt service to your entire neighbourhood. And you could be held liable for all of it.

Do you know the law?

Homeowners or their contractors who cause damage can be fined, charged for costly repairs to equipment or neighbouring property, or even sued if someone is injured. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Ten Year Comparison of Energy Costs shows that natural gas is cheaper then electricity, propane or furnace oil
