LPG Gas is a versatile, affordable source of energy for homes. It can be used for heating, cooking, cooling and drying. It is becoming a popular alternative to electricity because of our power constraints and constant disruptions. 

Here are 3 excellent reasons why you should switch to gas.

Compared to electricity LPG Gas, or Liquid Petroleum Gas, is more:


Cost Effective
because it:

  • Is cheaper to buy than electricity.
  • Is bottled in refillable gas cylinders. 
  • Has better heat control as it:
    • Heats instantaneously
    • Heats more evenly -  stove: the sides of a pan as well as on the bottom.
    • Heats only when turned on - electric geysers need to be turned on long before they have generated water hot enough to use for cooking or bathing so they are usually left running all the time.
  • Cooks food faster so you use your stove for shorter periods of time.
  • Spreads its heat more widely across the home whereas electrical heat is contained close to the appliance in use.

 

Eco Friendly because it:

  • Is an efficient and clean energy source.
  • Emits fewer pollutants and odours into the atmosphere.
  • Is non-toxic.
  • Has lower greenhouse gas emissions.

 

Reliable because it

  • Is a natural gas.
  • Originates from an underground pipeline so your fuel supply is always constant.
  • Allows you to braai or cook and to keep yourself and your home warm, or cool, even during load-shedding or any power outages. So, no more load shedding blues with gas!

It makes sense to switch to gas. Contact us, at SimsGas, if you want a cheaper and more energy efficient source of power for your home. We can help you make the switch.

With so much focus on being environmentally friendly and the high cost of electricity these days, not to mention the continuous power cuts, make it a New Year’s resolution to start getting off the grid by switching to appliances which use LPG, or Liquid Petroleum Gas, an efficient and clean energy source. 

LPG
is produced during natural gas processing and is stored as a liquid under pressure in gas bottles or tanks. As it heats up quickly, reaching its maximum heat almost immediately, it has a low carbon footprint and is much cheaper than electricity. It is bottled in refillable cylinders making it even more cost-effective. 

Switching to gas appliances may be costly initially but the long term financial savings of doing this will be well worth it and more eco friendly. However, it is also possible to begin getting off the grid gradually and in small, more affordable steps. Here we discuss both the expensive and less expensive options of switching to gas powered appliances. 

 

Where Options are Only Inexpensive
Gas Hot Plates
These are inexpensive, quick heating, portable, stand-alone small appliance cooktops with one or more heating elements or gas burners. Ideally, use these instead of your electric hob where possible and keep for backup when there is load-shedding or no electricity.

 

Where Options are Both Inexpensive and Expensive
Gas braais
Inexpensive
Small and portable versions are available.
Expensive
Install* a built-in gas braai on your patio.

Gas Heaters
Inexpensive
Portable, indoor gas heaters can be moved around in the home or outside onto the patio and even outdoors.
Expensive

  • When fixed in place, or wall-mounted, these gas heaters are designed for heating large areas. 
  • Modern gas heaters which look like fireplaces can be positioned between one or more rooms to heat the spaces simultaneously. They give off a lot of heat, so when the rooms have warmed up, you can save gas by reducing to a lower heat.

 

Gas Stoves
Inexpensive 

  • Use small and portable gas stoves instead of an electric stove where possible and as backup for when there is load-shedding or no electricity.

Expensive 
With Gas stoves, there is instant control of heat from high to low and it is much easier to regulate the temperature. Gas-only stoves can be permanently installed* in your kitchen, replacing your electric stove as the main cooking device or you can select a Dual-fuel stove so that you can choose which power you want to use at will. Just remember that using the gas option is generally much cheaper.

 

Where Options are Only Expensive
Gas Water Heaters or Gas Geysers
Because Electric geysers are huge consumers of a home's electricity, gas geysers are often the first replacement choice when converting to gas. They are extremely efficient as:

  • They only use the gas as and when it is required;
  • They only start to produce hot water when the hot tap is turned on so only the water that is needed is actually heated;
  • No water is wasted whilst waiting for the water to heat.

Consider these suggestions and determine your own needs but make it a New Year’s resolution to begin getting off the grid by switching to gas. You will reduce your expenses and will be lowering your carbon footprint and saving the environment. 

Here are some other, easy, cheap suggestions - which are not related to gas - to help you to start becoming energy efficient by switching to :

  • LED light bulbs.
  • rechargeable lights.
  • solar cell chargers, car phone chargers or a cell phone power bank.
  • surge protector plugs for your fridge, television and computer.

*It is important to note that Gas installations MUST be handled by a Gas Installer who MUST be registered with the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety Association of Southern Africa (LPGAS) and who will issue you with a Gas Compliance Certificate which is also required by your insurer to keep your insurance policy valid.

LPG Gas Distributors need to be registered with Liquefied Petroleum Gas South Africa (LPGSA). They must also have a valid wholesale licence from the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy if they want to sell petroleum products to consumers for end use.

This licence allows distributors to buy petroleum products in bulk (1 500 litres or more, per transaction of petroleum products) from gas refineries, and to sell it to their network of customer facing retail outlets. The licence must be renewed annually.

You can view a list of the registered dealers/distributors and their contact details here on the SAQCCGas website: https://saqccgas.co.za/
