Natural gas offers many benefits
When you choose natural gas as an energy source for your home, you can enjoy an impressive range of options combining comfort, energy efficiency and protection of the environment. Clean, safe natural gas is one of the world’s most widely used energy sources.
Gazifère’s natural gas system is among the most modern in North America, daily serving over 36,500 residential, commercial and institutional customers in the Outaouais region. System reliability and service quality are your guarantees of peace of mind at all times.
Converting your furnace
Your house is equipped with an oil-fired furnace, and you want to convert to an energy source that performs better and is more environmentally friendly? These are some good reasons for deciding to heat your home with natural gas.
A natural gas furnace will quickly fill your home with cosy warmth. With an electronic programmable thermostat, you can regulate the temperature accurately and get the level of comfort you want at any time of the night or day.
Natural gas furnaces use pulse combustion technology, are quiet in operation and produce very little dust. In addition, it is inexpensive and very easy to add central air conditioning and a humidifier to your natural gas furnace.

Begin by contacting the Sales Department to check whether your home is located near the Gazifère system. If your home fronts on a street served by our system, Gazifère will absorb the cost of connection. (Some conditions apply.)
Let Gazifère know at least five weeks before your renovation project begins. To request connection to the Gazifère system, call the Sales Department at 819 771 8321, and press 6.
We suggest that at the same time, you hire a contractor who is a natural gas specialist to install the piping in your home and connect your new natural gas appliances. Be sure to ask questions: your accredited contractor can advise you on new appliances that will meet your requirements.
