Natural Gas, What Is It?

Natural gas is a commonly used fuel source for heating residential homes in Abbotsford, B.C. It is a fossil fuel that is primarily composed of methane. Our gas fitters are fully trained and certified to work with with gas lines and appliances.

In furnaces, natural gas is used as the primary fuel for combustion. The gas is ignited in a burner, which heats up the air within the furnace. The heated air is then distributed throughout the home via ductwork, providing warmth to different rooms.

For boilers, natural gas is utilized to heat water. The gas is burned in a chamber, which transfers the heat to the water. The hot water is then circulated through pipes to radiators or baseboard heaters, providing warmth to the rooms.

Water heaters also use natural gas to heat water for domestic use. The gas burner heats a tank that stores and maintains hot water, supplying it to faucets, showers, and appliances as needed.

Why Choose Natural Gas?

Natural gas heating systems, such as furnaces, boilers, and water heaters, are known for their efficiency. In fact, the heating industry considers them to be more efficient than many other heating options available.

When it comes to furnaces, modern natural gas models can have efficiency ratings ranging from 90% to 98%. This means that 90-98% of the gas’s energy is converted into heat for your home, while only a small percentage is wasted. The higher the efficiency rating, the more cost-effective and energy-efficient the furnace is.

Boilers, on the other hand, tend to be even more efficient. High-efficiency natural gas boilers can achieve efficiency ratings of 90% or higher. These boilers extract more heat from the combustion process, which results in less wasted energy and lower heating costs.

Water heaters powered by natural gas also offer impressive efficiency. Tankless gas water heaters can have efficiency ratings of around 95%, because they only heat water when it is needed. This means no standby heat loss. To compare, traditional tank style water heaters, powered by natural gas have efficiency ratings ranging from 60% to 70%, depending on the model and technology used.

These natural gas heating systems are efficient and popular in residential homes due to their reliability and cost effectiveness. However, it is important to ensure regular maintenance, repairs, and replacements to keep these systems running efficiently and safely. We can help you do that!
