|You could save significantly on fuel costs by converting from propane to natural gas. Ameren Illinois natural gas prices also remain relatively low and stable, while propane prices tend to be volatile. And because natural gas appliances are so efficient, you'll save every month on energy costs. Ameren also offers many bill payment options, including Budget Billing, to help manage monthly costs.|
|Natural gas is delivered to your home through underground piping, so you never have to worry about running low on fuel, scheduling tank refills or maintaining storage tanks.|
|When used properly, natural gas is an extremely safe fuel choice. Natural gas is naturally colorless, tasteless and odorless, so Ameren adds a rotten-egg smell to make it easier to detect a natural gas leak.
For added safety, we install an excess flow valve on all new residential gas service lines to stop the flow of natural gas if a service line is damaged or ruptures.
|Natural gas supplies in the U.S. are abundant, so you can count on a ready supply of fuel.|
