Natural gas is the most affordable home energy
As the most affordable source of home energy, natural gas can save you more than $2,000
every year in heat and hot water costs compared to electricity, oil or propane. And, by
using a natural gas range or barbecue, you can save even more.
For the past 10 years, while the cost of living has gone up, natural gas prices have
remained low. With abundant supplies of natural gas right here in North America, you can
count on having reliable and affordable natural gas to heat your home and help cook your
food for years to come.

about how natural gas gives you the best value for your hard-earned dollars.
Inspect and detect—avoid carbon monoxide poisoning
Carbon monoxide (CO) is
a toxic gas that can build
up when any fuel-burning
equipment, such as your
furnace, water heater or
fireplace, doesn't burn or
vent properly. Because
you can't see or smell CO,
it's extremely important
to inspect and detect to
keep your family safe.
The best way to protect yourself and your family
from CO poisoning is to have all the fuel-burning
equipment in your home inspected annually by a
Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA)
registered contractor. You should also regularly
ensure outside exhaust vents, flues and chimneys
are clear of any nests, leaves or other debris.
The next line of defense is
to install CO alarms on every
level of your home, especially
near sleeping areas. Detecting
a natural gas leak requires
a natural gas or combined
natural gas/CO alarm.
What are the symptoms of CO poisoning?
- Headaches, shortage of breath, fainting.
- Dizziness, nausea, vomiting.
- Mental confusion, drowsiness, weakness.
Visit our Safety page for more information and
to watch a video on CO safety.
