Separating Fact from Fiction: Seaside Gas Tackles Common Myths

At Seaside Gas, we pride ourselves on being a trusted source of reliable information for all your energy needs. However, we understand that myths and misconceptions can sometimes spread like wildfire, especially in the world of gas and energy. Today, we’re here to debunk some of the most prevalent myths surrounding our industry, so you can make informed decisions.

Myth #1: Natural Gas is Harmful to the Environment

Many people believe that natural gas is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and environmental pollution. While it’s true that natural gas is a fossil fuel, it’s important to note that it burns cleaner than other fossil fuels like coal and oil. When burned properly, natural gas produces significantly less carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides than its counterparts, making it a relatively cleaner energy source.

Myth #2: Gas Leaks are Impossible to Detect

This myth couldn’t be further from the truth. At Seaside Gas, we employ state-of-the-art detection systems and conduct regular inspections to identify and address potential gas leaks promptly. Additionally, natural gas is odorized with a distinctive smell, making it easier for homeowners and businesses to detect leaks and take appropriate action.

Myth #3: Gas Appliances are Outdated and Inefficient

  • Modern gas appliances, such as furnaces, water heaters, and cooking ranges, are designed with energy efficiency in mind.
  • Many gas appliances today are ENERGY STAR certified, meaning they meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • When properly maintained, gas appliances can be just as efficient, if not more so, than their electric counterparts.

At Seaside Gas, we are committed to providing our customers with accurate information and dispelling any myths or misconceptions that may exist. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our knowledgeable team.
