Every once in a while I get a little sarcastic. It might get me in trouble one of these days – or should I say it might get me in more trouble one of these days.
Our burner tips are all a-flutter when we think of heating with natural gas because we know we have found a fuel that is committed to us for the long-term. With domestic reserves that boast an abundant supply, which could sustain our energy needs for approximately 100 years, it is the energy source that everyone can depend on.
You can always turn it on. As consumers, we need to be able to rely on basic things like a warm home, hot water and the ability to cook food. Natural gas is ready and waiting, even when the rest of your neighborhood is suffering a blackout. In fact, natural gas is so reliable that many use it to back-up generators in case of power outages. Other energy sources require you to keep a tank full, but natural gas is delivered through a pipeline, which means it is always there when you need it. (Emphasis added.)
Is it really any wonder why AGA is gaga for natural gas?
That was enough to turn me really quite snarky. I apologize in advance to all of the professionals who do their very best to make whole lemons from lemon juice vapors. They work hard to turn what was once an unwelcome byproduct of oil drilling into a useful, reasonably safe heat source.
Aside: – There is an old joke in oil producing regions. A prospector comes into a bar and tells his business partner the following, “I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that our well came up dry and does not have any oil. The good news is that it does not have any gas either.” End Aside.
I hope none of the professional gas technicians take offense from me pointing out that product pride and marketing can go too far. Here is the comment I wrote – I do not expect it to make it through the moderator or to last very long if it does.
I’m sorry, but I think you must have written this before February 2, when gas lines froze up all around Texas and New Mexico, leading to interruptions in BOTH electrical power production and natural gas deliveries.
I’m so sorry for those people who were oversold on your product to the point where they suffered quite a chill.
Gas is good, but please do not try to claim perfection. Those folks in the Allentown townhouse would beg to differ – only they no longer can differ with anyone because they died when your safe, clean product blew up just a day after their lines were inspected.
