As we inch closer and closer to summer, this is the ideal time of year to start thinking about outside entertaining. All over Sydney, balconies, courtyards, patios and all manner of outdoor spaces will be getting a clean-up in anticipation for hosting family and friends in the warm months ahead. But while you’re busy with the high pressure hose and pouring over the latest furniture catalogues, have you forgotten one thing that could really make your al fresco entertaining amazing? Yep, gas!
In this article, we look at the benefits of using gas vs electric, which one is cheaper and the benefits to your home and the environment.
BBQ with ease!
Having a gas bayonet connection installed in your outdoor area means no more gas bottles, and that means no more of those dreaded emergency trips to the servo when your gas has run out mid-BBQ with half-cooked snags languishing in the summer sun. If that’s not a good enough reason to make the switch to the reticulated natural gas supply, then we don’t know what is!
Looking further ahead, when summer fades and the cool of autumn starts to kick into a cold winter, what would be better than living in the toasty warmth of gas heaters? And what about an instantaneous gas hot water system, heated on demand so you never run out of hot water?
Clean & Green
These are not examples of the unfulfilled promises of the year 2015 depicted in the Back to the Future trilogy. Gas is a clean, green option for cooking and heating your home. It’s more affordable than electricity and incredibly energy efficient, saving you money now and in the future.
