The Safety position in football is widely considered one of the most valuable positions in the foundation of a formidable team. Safeties are the last line of defense and expected to be vigilant, consistent, and protect their teammates at all costs. This football season, as you’re watching your favorite college or pro team, consider the value of safety both on and off the field when you learn more about the safe use of natural gas energy inside your home.
Protect your teammates: Making the right choice in energy source helps protect your family. Appliances using natural gas have built in safety measures – consumers are aware when natural gas is in use thanks to its smell and technology built into the appliances.
Call the right play: When it comes to cooking appliances, it’s important to call the right play by selecting a natural gas stove and oven. The rate of reported cooking related fires in homes using electric appliances was 2.6 times higher than those using natural gas. Electric stoves are often less obvious when turned on and they tend to take longer to cool after being switched off following cooking.
Stay vigilant: Be aware and proactive when using cooking appliances. Scientific studies show that proper ventilation when cooking with both gas and electricity greatly improves air quality. All cooking releases emissions so be mindful of the temperature at which you’re cooking, the length of time on the stove or in the oven and the type of food being cooked. For more, watch our cooking safety PSA below.
Remain consistent: Natural gas is consistently found to be the safe and dependable choice. Federal regulations based on tests and research from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have continually confirmed that natural gas is a safe energy source for consumers.
With all of this in mind, you can create a winning lineup this fall by switching to direct use of natural gas in your home. In addition to being safe and reliable, natural gas appliances are cost effective, allowing families to save up to $1,000 a year! Talk about a winning combo!
