Winter has never been the same since getting firmus energy natural gas according to one local Antrim family.
Denise Hamill switched to natural gas six years ago and couldn’t be happier with her decision. Since then she hasn’t has to worry about remembering to order oil, nor about saving for the big oil tank fill, now she pays for her natural gas via direct debit. Nor does she have to fret about having enough hot water at heavy football times, in fact, she says, upgrading to natural gas energy was one of the best household decisions she’s ever made.
Denise said “I was thrilled when I received a letter from firmus energy to say my house was finally connectable to natural gas as I had always been keen to make the switch from oil. This was back in 2014 and at the time I was definitely viewed as one of the early adopters of this new way of heating the home. Since then you could say I’ve become a bit of an ambassador for natural gas. It’s just so convenient. Its clean, it’s always on and it never runs out. What’s not to like.
I have constant hot water when I need it and instant heat, which I can control at the touch of a button making it no problem making sure the house is cosy and inviting when friends and family make impromptu visits. I have also been able to utilise the added space from removing our old oil boiler as a drying room, helping me through the winter whilst still keeping our home nice and tidy.”
In fact having the ability to heat the house instantly was a major selling point for Denise “having access to hot water and the ability to heat our home instantly is incredibly comforting, there’s nothing worse than returning home after forgetting to leave the heat on a timer and waiting for the house to warm especially in these colder months.
Another personal advantage is the environmental benefits associated with converting from oil to gas. To be honest when I first switched it wasn’t an overly deciding factor, but over recent years it is something I believe to be very important. You only have to understand how important it is to reduce C02 emissions. Oil has significantly higher C02 emissions than natural gas and, for me, it makes me feel better than I am playing my part to help reduce the impact that I have on the environment,” she says.”
To date over 95,000 customers have connected to natural gas with firmus energy and are enjoying the benefits that natural gas brings – from constant hot water, to more space in the garden to more efficient boilers. And with the recent decrease in tariffs there isn’t a better time to switch!
