Natural gas is known as the affordable choice for home and business heating <https://www.fortisbc.com/MediaCentre/Blog/Pages/20161031-Can-you-name-the-cheapest-energy-source-available-today.aspx?utm_source=blog&utm_medium=ng_patio&utm_campaign=blog>. In fact, it’s about one third the cost of electricity for space and water heating. But it’s also great for making your outdoor space cosy and inviting. Whether you want to entertain friends and family with a barbecue party, relax in a hot tub under the stars or curl up in front of a fireplace on your patio, natural gas appliances offer convenience, reliability and style.
Check out all the ways natural gas can add sizzle to your summer:
Natural gas barbecues heat quickly and evenly, allowing you to control the heat precisely and cook with different temperatures at the same time. You’ll never run out of fuel or have to deal with messy charcoal or propane tanks again.
Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits
For instant ambience, nothing beats a natural gas fireplace or fire pit. They provide the warmth of a real fire without chopping wood, smoke or spitting embers. With a wide variety of styles, sizes and venting options, it’s easy to find one to suit your outdoor space.
When the sun goes down, you can stay outdoors and keep cosy with natural gas patio heaters. They use radiant heat to raise the temperature of an area by a few degrees.
Natural gas patio lamps provide a beautiful glow, perfect for patio entertaining and illuminating walkways for safety. They connect to your home or business natural gas supply, so you never need to refill them.
Pool and hot tub heating
Natural gas pool heaters can extend your swim season well into fall, and they’ll keep your hot tub toasty. They heat faster than electric heaters and keep the water at a consistent, comfortable temperature.
