To ensure smooth operations and guarantee continuity of service, nothing matches the reliability of natural gas. It outperforms electricity and is cleaner than fuel oil, which means that everyone can breathe better.
Make an energy investment that is both durable and economical. Heating, hot water, cooking or laundry – natural gas amenities often come with a rapid return on investment.
Natural gas is easy to use and the right equipment can improve performance significantly. In addition, natural gas allows us to realize substantial savings compared to fuel-oil or electricity.

Several health establishments have decided to choose natural gas as an energy source to reduce their energy costs and reinvest the money saved to improve their competitiveness.
The Fleurimont Hospital, now part of CHUS, was built in the 1960s and converted to natural gas in the 80s. At the time, the goal of the conversion was simply to save money and reduce pollution. The hospital centre, aided by invaluable subsidies, naturally turned towards natural gas.
