Consider going all-electric

            Whether you’re choosing your energy supply for a new home or looking to consolidate the energy sources in your existing home, consider these advantages to an all-electric house:

  • If your home is already wired for electricity, there’s no need to also install and connect gas and oil lines.
  • Electric appliances are quiet, clean and fume-free. Electric appliance manufacturers are constantly working to produce more efficient products like those with the Energy Star label, which means the government has deemed them extra-efficient.
  • Energy-conscious California is updating building codes to encourage all-electric homes. Some utilities there are even offering rebates to homeowners who buy new, all-electric homes or retrofit their existing homes to get rid of the need for gas.
