All-electric buildings or building electrification refers to buildings that have no natural gas service. All-electric buildings have electric appliances for space and water heating, clothes drying, cooking, and more. By avoiding the use of natural gas, a fossil fuel, an all-electric building has a smaller carbon footprint.
Electric appliances are more efficient than their natural-gas counterparts and are comparable in cost.
