Natural gas has a number of uses around your home, including heating and cooling, hot water systems and cooking.
Below, we explore 4 benefits to having access to natural gas:
More cost effective
In Western Australia, using is around half the cost* of using grid based electricity, which can result in savings on your energy bills. Using natural gas appliances, such as heaters and stoves, are known to be more efficient than electric appliances.
Preferred method of cooking
For most, gas is the preferred energy source for cooking as it allows you to be in complete control – you can control the intensity of the heat by adjusting the size of the flam. Induction cooktops also require special pots and pans to be compatible. With gas cooktops, you can use your regular cookware.
With natural gas connection, you can even connect your BBQ, so you never have to worry about running out of gas at your next party.
One of the biggest benefits is reliability. If the power goes out in your home, you can still continue to operate your gas appliances (such as cooking on the stovetop) without interruptions.
In Western Australia, natural gas produces less greenhouse emissions than grid supplied electricity*.
Did you know: some land estates don’t offer gas connection, so be sure to check when you’re looking for your perfect place to call home if this is important for you.
