Natural gas is widely used at households to heat showers and light stoves. Its choice as a fuel is not limited to these uses, however. It can also be used to heat saunas, pools, clothes washers and dryers, cooling systems, fireplaces, heaters, and even fire barbecues.
The choice of natural gas created a market that is in great expansion, particularly in the major urban centers throughout the Country. State distributing companies have been increasing their networks, making significant investments in conversions and in residential adaptations.
