Fuel Switching to Lower Your Carbon Footprint

Fuel Switching to Lower Your Carbon Footprint

Looking to reduce your carbon footprint and save energy? Consider fuel switching. Saying goodbye to gas appliances is one of the best ways to help the environment and increase the energy efficiency of your home. Electric appliances have come a long way and their performance now often exceeds gas models. Here are some of the easiest ways to make the switch.

Electric and Induction Cooktops

Compared to gas ranges, electric and induction cooktops produce less ambient heat which means lower air conditioning costs. Gas stoves can emit free-floating air pollutants which contribute to poor indoor air quality. In fact, a study by researchers at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health found that the harmful indoor air quality caused by gas-powered appliances can increase the likelihood of respiratory and cardiovascular disease and premature death. By switching to electric or induction cooktops, you can lower your energy bill and have peace of mind knowing that you aren’t at risk for a gas leak.

Heat Pump Water Heaters

Heat pumps use electricity and refrigerants to take heat from the surrounding air and transfer it into the water in the tank. These heat pumps offer several advantages over conventional natural gas water heaters, including increased energy efficiency and reduced air pollution and carbon emissions. Heat pump water heater rebates are available to both homeowners and to qualified installers and contractors.

Heat Pump Space Heaters

Heat pump space heaters work similarly to heat pump water heaters and are a high-efficiency alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Heat pumps don’t expend energy-generating heat, so they achieve the same level of comfort while using one-fourth of the energy compared to traditional heating or cooling appliances.

Electric Vehicles

One of the most impactful ways to practice fuel switching is to buy an EV. The cost of powering an EV with MCE’s Deep Green 100% renewable service is half that of a gas-powered vehicle, and it’s completely free of greenhouse gases. MCE offers a number of EV rebates and discounts to help you make the switch.
