Natural Gas is used to produce heat for many purposes. Heat for drying cloths (with a dryer) heat for food ( with an oven) heat for water (with a water heater) and heating our homes. As we all know, Natural Gas is a fossil fuel and produces CO2 as a byproduct. If we want to truly live a Zero Impact Lifestyle, we need to lower our usage of Natural Gas. The technology exist to create all the necessary heat with electricity, by using an electric dryer, an electric oven and electric water heaters, along with electric heat pumps. And since electricity can be produced from clean sources such as solar and wind, these appliances will have a low impact on the environment.
