Gas vs. Electric Appliances

Last updated 3 years ago

 It seems that in the gas versus electric debate, electric is usually viewed as the cheaper, more efficient option.  At least this is the case when we speak about the automotive industry and the distinct trend of electricity playing a larger role within that field. 

However, when we look at the other common usages of energy, gas takes on a whole new meaning, because we are talking about natural gas, which will actually save you money.

Let's take a look at the natural gas vs. electric debate in terms of the appliances you use all the time.


Natural gas burners heat up quick and provide the chef (you) greater control of the relationship between the heat and the food.  If you want to create great meals in your own kitchen, then natural gas can help you do just that.


Natural gas is more efficient than electricity for the same reason that it is so effective.  There is no warm up or cool down time (wasted energy); natural gas gets down to business right away.  This efficiency saves you money.


The cost of natural gas costs compared to electricity depends on where you live.  If you have an available energy provider (Florida does), then you will save money using natural gas.  Electric is cheaper only where natural gas is not provided.

If you are located in south or central Florida, then you have Florida Public Utilites to provide the natural gas that will meet your functionality, efficiency, and cost effective needs.
