Why is electricity better for your budget?
Converting to electric appliances such as a heat pump water heater and a heat pump HVAC system will help you save money on your overall energy costs. The average residential customer who switches from gas to all-electric can save an average of over $500 per year on their energy bills*.

Why is electricity better for your health?
On average, we spend most of our time indoors, where pollutant levels are often higher than those outside. Converting to electric appliances will eliminate the indoor air pollution that gas-burning appliances release into your home.

- Cooking with gas expels pollutants directly into your home, contributing to poor indoor air quality.
- Pollution from gas cooking can be reduced by continuously running your vent hood while cooking.
- Indoor pollution is estimated to cause hundreds of thousands of respiratory health problems each year.
