Thoughts on Natural Gas

- 12:56 pm - March 7th, 2013

Devastation isn’t something we take lightly at Dominick Fuel. And, when tragedy strikes we reflect on what could have been done differently; we ask ourselves…

  • Was there a warning sign?
  • What preventative measures could have been taken?
  • Were routine inspections being completed; issues repaired and addressed?

It’s only natural to feel that way, and we believe you do the same. That’s why…
When we post articles about natural gas explosions, or any other tragedy, we’re only doing it to help educate you and all of the Dominick Fuel customer family. Sometimes that means talking about things which are, well, uncomfortable, like the recent tragedy in Michigan.

If you haven’t heard what happened in Michigan, you can read about it here.
Recently the State of Connecticut has been pushing residents to switch from oil heat to natural gas. They have two main reasons:

  1. It’s cleaner. And,
  2. It’s cheaper.

I’ll get to the cleaner part in a minute. First, is it really cheaper? Right now, yes.
But, that hasn’t been the case for 24 of the past 28 years, and there is no guarantee it will remain cheaper. Like everything else the price of natural gas (and oil too!) fluctuates, which is one of the reasons Dominick Fuel offers price protection plans to our oil customers. (If you’re not a customer already, you can get one too. Just give us a call to find out how.)
Now, about natural gas being cleaner. Most folks don’t know that the main fuel component of natural gas is methane, which can produce 25-70 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. And, according to The Washington Post natural gas is a leading cause of Global Warming.

So, is it really cleaner? We’ll let you decide on that one.

We’d be happy to share more information with you, and answer any questions you have about oil vs. natural gas heating. So, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 203-866-5836 if you’d like.

Best Regard,
