Not only does it produce a third of the greenhouse emissions than electricity, but it is also far cheaper to run and maintain. Here are three ways to use LPG in your home to save you money and run a more eco-friendly household.


Geysers

Electronic water storage systems are usually left running throughout the day or are required to be turned on long before you plan on taking a shower, bath, or washing the dishes. Gas powered geysers will only use gas when hot water is actually needed, making it the cheaper and more energy efficient option.


Heating

Gas is the ideal option to heat your home as well as to help keep your refrigerator cool. Both are essential to living and LPG provides a stable, cheap power supply in South Africa’s unstable electricity supply.


Cooking

Not only are gas stoves and oven cheaper to run and maintain than their electrical counterparts, but they are also more responsive to what you need temperature wise. LPG will give you instant and even cooking heat meaning your food will take less time to cook.

It’s never fun to run out of energy for the task at hand, and whether you are braai-master for the day or washing the kids hair before first day of school, you should always have your LPG gas ready to go! Read here for our 5 tips to never run out of gas.

  1. Always have at least two LPG bottles so you can properly cycle them, and order a refill as soon as the first one is finished.
  2. Order your refills first thing in the morning to avoid a forgetful blunder, and now you can even make your orders online. Place an order with us here. http://ow.ly/B7YH30mIb8h
  3. During the colder winter months or periods of high-use like with additional house guess, remember to check your gas bottles more often than usual. Try and note the timescale of your usage for better reference in the future. 
  4. As you increase the number of appliances installed, remember to check the quantity level of your gas bottles more often to account for the more output. To check the level, see if a line of condensation appears on the bottle, which will indicate the level of the remaining gas. If no line is apparent, place your hand on the bottle and you should feel a temperature drop at the level of gas.  
  5. Have your fittings and connections checked regularly to monitor any potential leaks within your system, and avoid costly wastage. 
  6. Make sure you use a trusted Gas supplier to avoid half full gas cylinders!
