The 4 Biggest Drawbacks that Come with Natural Gas

1. Safety Concerns

Natural gas is explosive and can cause issues that can drastically affect the safety of MA residents who use it. Safer fuel alternatives such as propane are non-caustic, more eco-friendly, and have clear, distinct warning signs in the unlikely event of a propane gas leak.

2. Costly Conversions

Converting to natural gas might seem simple on the surface, but there’s more to it than you might think. If you choose to become a natural gas customer for heating, you’ll also need to convert all your appliances or invest in brand-new equipment.

3. Lack of Local Customer Service

Unlike the top-quality service you expect from your local full-service HVAC provider like Snow’s Fuel Company, natural gas utility service is a huge operation that handles its customer service from equally large call centers. If you have a problem with your natural gas utility and need to reach someone, you won’t be talking to an experienced local customer service representative.

4. Sub-Par Equipment Service

As a natural gas customer, instead of trusting a local full-service provider with both your fuel delivery and HVAC needs, you’ll have to rely on a separate service provider for equipment conversion, installation, or repairs. That’s a stark difference from getting both your fuel and equipment service from Snow’s!
