More than 177 million Americans use natural gas to cook a hot meal, heat their water or warm their houses. Not only does natural gas make appliances more efficient, but it can also offer a charming and efficient form of lighting.
Bevolo Gas and Electric Lights began in the French Quarter in 1945 when Andrew Bevolo, Sr. revolutionized the production of gas lamps. He honed his metalworking skills while working for historic manufacturing companies, including Ford, Sikorsky, and Higgins. Bevolo’s master craftsmanship and artistic style was the perfect complement when paired with the talents of renowned architect A. Hays Town. Together, utilizing a hand riveting technique rather than brittle soldered joints, they created what would eventually become known as the original French Quarter Lamp.
Today, Bevolo’s gas burners provide a distinctive “bat-wing” shaped flame while offering the lowest BTU rating on the market. The burners, exclusive to Bevolo, cost approximately $7 to $11 per month to operate t 24/7. Adding Bevolo lanterns to a home or building is simple. Bevolo offers a complimentary design and scaling service. To begin, email plans or pictures of the project you desire and Bevolo will make style and scale recommendations.
Bevolo gaslights burn in all 50 states and more than 34 countries. With an efficient burner, low environmental impact manufacturing process and sustainable materials, Bevolo lights last far beyond our lifetime.
To experience Bevolo natural gas lights in person, stop by the AGA booth (#C2615) during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas on Jan. 20-22.
