When the Energy is Electric

You’ll rave about all the benefits you get by switching to electric appliances, power tools and even vehicles. From safety to sustainability, here are four reasons to make the switch from gas to electric.

Safety First

Electric appliances, especially stoves, are generally safer than their gas counterparts as they eliminate both open flames and the potential for a gas leak.

They do not produce carbon emissions, and they are not as noisy. They are also safer because they do not have idle mode like the gas-powered options do.

Cost Savings

Not only do electric appliances, power tools and vehicles run on a more affordable energy source, they generally require less maintenance than their gas-powered counterparts. This can result in significant savings that will outweigh your upfront investment over the long haul.

Efficiency and Sustainability

When it comes to things like vehicles, heat pumps and water heaters, electric options take less energy to do the same amount of work, which makes them more efficient and

more sustainable. They’re easier on your pocketbook and better for the planet. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about running out of gas when you’re in the middle of a project!

It’s Universal

Energy conversions are costly. Your home and business are already set up for electricity, so getting a new device up and running is as simple as plug and play. Plus, electricity powers all types of energy usages, while gas is limited in its scope of power.
