Switch your appliances—such as furnaces, water heaters, stoves, and clothes dryers—from gas to electric to improve the health and safety of your home and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Building electrification is the substitution of gas appliances (furnaces, water heaters, cooking ranges, dryers, etc.) with clean, safe, and highly efficient all-electric alternatives in a way that results in improved indoor air quality, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and more grid resiliency. Find resources on this page to help you transition to electric appliances in your home.
