You’re in hot water! How to save money

When we talk with customers about saving energy and saving money, we talk a lot about natural gas water heating and especially natural gas tankless water heating.

There are good reasons for this - natural gas water heating is a great way to reduce your energy costs, be more environmentally friendly and improve your home comfort – and it normally costs a lot less than upgrading your heating and cooling system (which is another great thing to do but usually a lot more expensive).

You have to have hot water every day, so why not pay the least amount for it?

Looking for a new home? You'll probably see gas water heating as standard if you’re looking at high quality, highly efficient homes. Natural gas water heating can save you as much as $250 or more every year in energy costs while providing a seemingly endless supply.

Converting to natural gas water heating in your current home is a great way to save money, be greener and improve your comfort and convenience. We have a $300 rebate to help you convert your existing electric or propane model to natural gas so call us today at 1.800.251.SCEG (7234) or visit us on-line at for more information.

Now you know why we talk a lot about natural gas water heating! Oh, and most natural gas tankless water heaters also qualify for a federal tax credit up to $1,500 as long as you have tax liability. Check with your tax advisor to see if you qualify, and hurry because the tax credit ends this year!
