Take the First Step to Comfort and Savings

To enjoy the comfort, warmth and savings of natural gas in your home, first let’s find out if natural gas is available to your property then explore the many uses of natural gas throughout your home.

Discover the Many Benefits of Natural Gas

Natural gas from UGI is an efficient source of energy that is reliable, affordable and easy on the environment. The cost stays low and stable, because it is a “home-grown” energy, with 96% of natural gas consumed in the U.S. produced in this country.

It's Affordable

On average, customers who heat with natural gas save hundreds of dollars per year over oil, propane or electric. For customized annual cost comparisons for natural gas versus other fuels, refer to UGI’s home savings calculator.

Natural gas also, historically, has had more price stability than oil. You only pay for the energy you use, after you use it. To make gas even more affordable, we offer a budget billing plan, allowing you to space out your payments throughout the year.

It's Clean

Natural gas is the cleaner than oil and electric. When used for water and space heating, cooking and clothes drying, natural gas creates about 30% fewer greenhouse gas emissions versus electric.

It's Abundant

Natural gas is one of the most abundant and widely available domestically produced resources in the United States. In particular, the Marcellus Shale continues to help keep the supply of natural gas plentiful.
