Flaming Good - The Advantages of Natural Gas

Curl Curl Administration Admin Login - Wednesday, June 06, 2012

As we go into these cooler months the last thing you want to be doing is using more electricity. We all know that electricity prices have risen xx% in the last 5 years and is still rising with the new carbon tax.

So what are the alternatives? There is solar which works well in the Australian climate. This is great for hot water and for cheap electricity. The trouble with solar is the cost to supply and install. This cost was reasonable when the government rebates were in place but now they no longer exist it is far less cost effective.

The other alternative is Gas.  If you are lucky enough to have Natural gas in your street this is a very cheap option to power your hot water service, cook top, oven, room heater, or central heater.

The advantage of this energy source is the appliances are reasonably priced and easy to install.  As for the solar option you need to have a roof that is big enough and face the right direction to pick up the sun.  This can become difficult if you live in a town house or unit and even if you have a big home, the cost can be expensive to get the panels up on a second story roof.

So if you’re looking to slash your energy bills this year than look at getting the gas on.

There is even an option for those that don’t have natural gas in the street.  That opion is having refillable LPG gas bottles on the side of you house.  It works just like natural gas except you have to have your gas bottles refilled.  The system is set up in a way so you never run out of gas.  This works by having 2 bottles and when 1 bottle runs out you flick a switch and change over to the full bottle.  You than call to have the empty bottle filled.  The 2 bottles would normally get you through a winter.

If you would like to know more about getting Natural or LPG gas on, call our friendly team on 99076077.

For every gas hot water upgrade from electric, we will give you $150 trade in on your old heater whether it is working or not.  Now that is a Flaming good deal!!!
