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!

There is nothing worse than turning on your stove, heater, gas braai or any other gas appliance only to discover that you’re out of gas. But how do you tell if it’s empty or running low on gas? Here are two tried and tested methods to measure the amount of gas you have left in your bottle.

Method One: Weighing

If you think your gas bottle is feeling a little lighter than you’d like, weighing the bottle is a great way to see how much gas is left. Most bottles will have the empty  weight stamped on the neck, and if the weight indicated on the stamp and the weight of your bottle are the same, you’re out of gas. You can then approximate the amount of gas you have left by the difference in weight. 

Method Two: The Water Method

For larger bottles that won’t fit on your bathroom scale, this method will probably work best for you. Fill a bucket with hot water from the tap and carefully pour it down the side of the gas bottle. A line of condensation should appear on the bottle indicating where the gas level is. If this line doesn’t show up, wait a few seconds and then run your hand down the side of the bottle where you poured the hot water. There will be a notable temperature difference between where the bottle is empty and where the gas is sitting, with the area of the gas being colder than the empty part of the bottle.

Switching your electrical stove top and replacing it with a gas powered stove has a wide range of advantages...

Although electricity has made our lives far easier and a lot more comfortable, making use of Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)  provides an efficient cooking method, with a few more important benefits that cannot be ignored. Here are the top four reasons you should be cooking with gas instead of electricity.

Immediate and even heat:

Using gas ensures that there won’t be such a long waiting period for your stove plate to warm up. This is the reason that many professional chefs opt for gas stoves as they can quickly and easily heat up their pan or pot with the turn of a dial. The heat provided by a gas stove is also evenly distributed across your cookware, ensuring you won’t have any cold spots or scorching areas on your pan when you cook.

Cleaner fuel source:

LPG gas is both lead and sulphur free and doesn’t require  burning  coal and other Fossil fuels to produce electricity.  Although gas is still a resource that requires extraction for our consumption, it is a more environmentally friendly option at the moment.

Unaffected by blackouts and load-shedding:

We’ve all been there when the power goes out right in the middle of cooking dinner. South Africans are very familiar with load-shedding, and most of us in Johannesburg aren’t strangers to blackouts during our famous Highveld storms. Having a gas stove means that when the power is out, there’s no need to worry.  With a LPG cooker, you will always be ready to cook up a storm, even though it may be by candle-light. 

Cheaper operating costs:

While the initial purchase and installation costs of a gas stove may be more expensive than  a standard electrical stove set up, the costs of running on gas are far less over time. An investment into using gas for your home cooking needs will give you peace of mind for many years to come. 

With all the benefits we’ve just mentioned, it is very easy to see whygas stoves have become increasingly popular in so many home across South Africa. 
Make sure you use a trusted Gas supplier to avoid half full gas cylinders.
