Four years ago, François Rainville and his girlfriend bought a natural gas-powered condo. They didn’t know much about this fuel, apart from the fact that it was affordable.
The young couple were quickly convinced of the benefits of natural gas and are pleased with the increased comfort. The central heating system warms the air faster than an electric system. During a power outage, the natural gas fireplace served as backup heating. François and his girlfriend like being able to use the barbecue as much as they want without having to handle combustibles.
"Before, natural gas was a bonus and now it’s indispensable."- François Rainville
The two main criteria Pierre Hébert looks for when buying a house is central heating, for comfort, and natural gas, for performance and efficiency. Over 20 years ago, he and his girlfriend were happy to buy the family home, which already had a natural gas stove and boiler.
For heating, they activate the boiler and 15 minutes later, perfectly uniform warmth and a sense of increased comfort fill the house.
"To this day if I had to pick between two similar houses, I would pick the one with natural gas. Once you’ve tried it, you can’t go back."
