Here’s why you should choose natural gas for your new home

It’s no surprise that natural gas is the first choice for over 688,000 customers in Ireland today. Natural gas is cheaper than other conventional fuels and helps to reduce your carbon footprint. In addition to this, it’s a trusted energy source – reliable and versatile. If you’re making the move to a new home soon, make sure it’s connected to the national gas network to enjoy all of its benefits.

Save on your energy bills

Natural gas is one of the most cost effective fuels on the market – 18% cheaper than oil, 39% cheaper than bulk LPG and 68% cheaper than electricity.* Did you know that the price of natural gas decreases as more customers join the network? We’re continuing to connect more users each day – 300,000 in the last 15 years – which is good news for all of our customers. Gas prices also benefit from the security of our gas supply, with entry points in Cork, Mayo and Scotland.

Unmatched for convenience

What’s more convenient than your energy source being available on tap? A constant supply of natural gas is piped directly to your home, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you don’t need to place orders or organise deliveries.  Natural gas can’t be matched for speed and controllability, heating your home significantly faster than electricity. It also outperforms other energy sources in the kitchen, providing immediate heat and faster cooking times.

Better for the environment

Natural gas produces 24% less CO₂ than oil and 57% less CO₂ than electricity*, making it the best choice for a greener future. To supplement our supply of natural gas, renewable gas is currently being developed from organic materials to create a clean and green sustainable energy source. By 2030, we plan on supplying 20% of Ireland’s natural gas needs from renewable gas, so you can rest easy knowing that we’re working hard to reduce your carbon footprint.

Reliable and versatile

With natural gas piped directly to your home, you won’t have to worry about interruptions to your supply in winter months or relighting your boiler. It’s the most versatile of all fuels, compatible with a large range of modern appliances including fires, cookers and tumble dryers. It also provides hot water and heating with the flick of a switch.
