Patterns of range gas consumption in northern illinois households

(1999-10-01) Wilkes C

Information on range gas consumption in residences is important for (1)predicting and managing short-term and long-term changes in demand for natural gas, and (2) modeling indoor air quality (IAQ) impacts of combustion products such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. This research analyzed data from a Residential Load Study conducted by the Northern Illinois Gas Company (NIGAS) between 1990 and 1992. Data for both the range top and oven were examined in order to quantify patterns of range gas consumption and the relationship of consumption rates to various factors including time of day, time of year, presence of pilot lights, and demographic characteristics. Based on daily meter readings, the average daily fuel consumption for gas ranges is 9.3 cubic feet. If pilot light consumption is excluded, the average daily consumption is 6.4 cubic feet. Weekly gas consumption exhibits a distinct sinusoidal pattern throughout the year, peaking in December/January. Additional analysis using the data from the NIGAS study is recommended.
