Why Choose Gas
Natural Gas can benefit your life in so many ways. If you are one of the lucky Victorian townships soon to have access to Natural Gas, you too can enjoy the warmth and comfort that Natural Gas provides. There are seven great reasons for you to make the switch to instant, efficient, economical natural gas.
Reason No 1. IT’S AFFORDABLE
Natural gas is a more affordable alternative to electricity and LPG, while also remaining more efficient.
Reason No 2. IT’S CONVENIENT
No more splinters from carrying the wood in from outside; less dust around the house; no more smoke or ash; and you’ll never run out of fuel! Think of the instant heat, the endless hot showers and the ease of cooking.
Reason No 3. IT’S COMFORTABLE
With natural gas heating you can have the warmth you want, where you want, when you want it. Most importantly, natural gas is a more comfortable heating. It provides instant, short, intensive heat without draughts, dust or condensation. It is the perfect source of heating for families with health problems.
Reason No 4. IT’S SAFE
Natural gas is one of the safest forms of energy, due to it having a limited range of flammability. This means that it requires a very specific mixture of fuel and air, as well as a very hot ignition source, in order to ignite, unlike fuels and oils. While natural gas is odourless, the gas running through the pipeline has an odour added to it to assist in identifying a gas leak. Natural gas is also lighter than air, so it dissipates much quicker in the event of a leak.
Before a gas meter is commissioned all equipment and pipework is rigorously tested to ensure it complies with the standards and will operate safely.
Reason No 5. IT’S VERSATILE
You can use natural gas to heat your home with a fully-ducted system, or set the mood with a flame-effect fireplace. Natural gas can even be used to heat your swimming pool or hot tub. You can use it for cooking indoors or out, with cooktops, ovens and even BBQs. Once your home is connected to natural gas it’s very easy to connect additional appliances in the future.
Reason No 6. IT’S CLEAN
Natural gas is the cleanest of all fossil fuels and is one of the best energy alternatives available today.
Reason No 7. IT’S GOING TO MAKE LIFE EASIER WHEN IT COMES TIME TO SELL
Having natural gas connected to your home has been proven to increase property values and make the property more appealing to prospective buyers searching for a cleaner, greener home.
