Here’s a quick rundown of all the reliable, economical and environmentally smart natural gas appliances that can make outdoor life around your home more pleasurable.
It’s time to join the “grill masters” who’ve made the switch from charcoal or propane grills to a natural gas grill. Natural gas eliminates the hassle of charcoal or refilling heavy propane tanks. They extend your summer cookout season – and never run out of fuel. Gas grills can be installed just about anywhere. The can be permanently mounted in-ground or on your deck. Or you can use a quick-connect option and install your grill on a portable cart, so you can move it when you’re not using it. Add-on options include cast iron grids, adjustable shelves, side burners, rotisseries and instant-start ignition.
Natural gas grills offer more precise temperature control than charcoal. Cooking outdoors on a natural gas grill also reduces heat in the kitchen, which puts less demand on air conditioning during hot summer months.
Want to get a head start on summer? How about extending your swimming season? Consider a natural gas pool or spa heater. Natural gas is the most effective way to maintain ideal water temperatures. Models are up to 97 percent energy efficient and warm the water twice as fast as electric heaters, according to the American Gas Association. Natural gas pool heaters are available for any size pool or spa.
Natural gas patio heaters let your family keep enjoying the outdoors on your patio or deck, even when the temperatures drop. Natural gas patio heaters are mushroom- or umbrella-shaped units that radiate heat downward to warm a 12- to 20-foot area. They are most effective when the outdoor temperatures are between 50 and 70 degrees. Patio heaters can be located almost anywhere with post mount, suspension and portable models available.
Authentic gaslights are beautiful. Mounted on exterior walls, porch ceilings or on lampposts, gaslights not only add charm to your home, but also functional outdoor lighting. You can control modern gaslights with switches installed inside your house, or with timers. And there’s a bonus benefit: Gaslights don't attract bugs.
