Why we love natural gas

Why we love natural gas

There’s a huge range of gas powered appliances available on the market these days, so when it comes to choosing which to add to your home, it can be pretty confusing. Besides how it looks, knowing how an appliance works can guide your choices by helping you decide if it meets your needs and fits with your lifestyle. Here’s a breakdown of the most popular appliances available when you have a gas connection, what they do and why to love them.
Nearly everyone will be familiar with the joy of cooking on a gas cooktop,
the gas powered ring burners provide an extremely high level of controllability and instant temperature response, meaning they reach their full heating power immediately. Plus, you can still cook in a power outage, and unlike your neighbours with the electric cooker, you’ve got the best tool for any kind of wok cooking.


Why we love them: Never have to replace an LPG bottle again­ especially not in the mid-sausage sizzle.

Without a doubt, natural gas is the most convenient way to run your barbecue: a continuous, uninterrupted energy supply that’s cheaper than LPG bottles, doesn’t require you to wait in line to swap it over and doesn’t ever crop up as a surprise cost. Plus, if you have a gas connection fitted outdoors, you can add appliances as you go: heaters, spa heaters, an outdoor fireplace and so on.

Did you know the products of combustion that power gas ovens actually release moisture which can help the cooking process by keeping roasts, ribs, cakes and cookies moist?


Why we love them: The perfect roast, every time.

When it comes to choosing an oven, it’s all to do with the features. If you’re buying a new home, make sure you tell your builder what your preferences are.

Storage hot water systems

Why we love them: It may not be as efficient as a instant system, but a gas powered storage tank still lets you reap all the benefits of natural gas ­ it’s clean, it’s economical, it’s reliable and it still works in a black out.

New homes with natural gas connected hot water supplies were most commonly fitted with storage tanks, but over the last decade there’s been a move towards instant systems, with this change continuing to accelerate. A good analogy is to imagine the hot water storage tank as a giant kettle heated by a gas flame ­ a thermostat controls the temperature and when the water hits the mark, the pilot flame turns itself off.

Instant hot water systems

Why we love them: Set the temperature and suds up ­ even with a big family, this hot water supply never runs out.

These hot water systems sit outside in a small ‘box’ and are often built into the wall (meaning they take up significantly less space than their storage tank cousins!). They’re very economically efficient and instant, which means no waiting around for a hot shower. 

Natural gas fireplace

Why we love them: Those flickering flames add character and cosiness to any room.

This appliance is all about ambiance. Like any radiant heater, it’s heating you rather than the air around you (just like the sun!), but has the added psychological benefit of the seeing the fire which helps you feel warm, too

We’re obviously a little bias but the benefits of natural gas really do speak for themselves.
