If not, then you are really missing out. There is a lot to gain by using natural gas in your home. It is a very versatile fuel, and it is one that is also incredibly convenient. As is the case with any fuel, though, natural gas can be dangerous if it is not used properly.
The only way to guarantee that you are using natural gas safely in your home is to have it piped into your house by professional plumbers. And the best way to guarantee that you’re working with the right plumber in Corona, CA, is to schedule service with a Sunny Plumber.

Heat Your Home. Heat Your Water. Dry Your Clothes.
Like we said, natural gas is a very versatile fuel. Some common applications of natural include providing fuel for:
- Water Heaters
- Clothes Dryers
- Outdoor Grills, Firepits, and More!
Now, you may be saying to yourself—so what? Electricity can power my heater. It can dry my clothes. What’s the big deal?
Natural Gas Is Very Affordable
Electric appliances are incredibly efficient, but homeowners too often confuse efficiency with affordability. While an electric furnace may have a higher efficiency rating than a natural gas furnace, it will most likely still cost you more to run. Why?
Because electricity is just more expensive. So, even if the system/appliance is using it efficiently, that initial cost of the fuel/power itself is going to make the difference! It’s not all about affordability either, though.
Natural Gas vs. Oil, Propane, etc.
Natural gas is not the only combustible fuel that people use in their homes, but it is hard to make an argument against it being the best fuel combustible fuel that people use.
Think about the alternatives. Oil is a largely foreign product, meaning that your money isn’t going into our domestic economy. Plus, oil prices are far more volatile than natural gas prices. As natural gas is a largely domestic product, it tends to be much more stable in terms of price.
And, unlike fuels like oil or propane, there is no need to schedule fuel delivery. Natural gas is piped directly to the house. There is no minimum delivery amount, no delivery fees, no need for on-site storage, etc.
Natural gas is one of the cleanest-burning fossil fuels, too.
Smell Gas? Get Out and Call the Authorities!
We cannot stress this enough. When you work with a professional plumber like us, natural gas is very safe to use in your home. However, there are no 100% guarantees when it comes to safety. If you ever smell the rotten egg odor of natural gas in your home, get out of the house immediately and call the appropriate authorities. If there is a gas line/piping leak, we can fix it. But you need to keep yourself safe until we do.
