Liquid Petroleum Gas - your survival tool for Loadshedding

So, you’re thinking of switching to gas? Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) is one of the most cost-effective routes to keep your home powered during the colder months. It's an essential industrial fuel but has additional benefits for personal and commercial applications.

This is increasingly important when considering modern demands and awareness of creating a more sustainable environment. This piece looks closely at the benefits of LPG and why you should consider switching today.

Avoid having to pay for expensive solutions

In most cases, the affordable price of LPG saves on increasingly high energy costs for most homeowners. Since it's cheaper than natural gas and petroleum, it is in high demand, so you won't have to look too far to purchase it.

LPG can help your industry maximise profits thanks to its energy-efficient properties for those trying to run a small business. Above this, it is easily stored and completely sealed thanks to its non-spillage container bottles.

Designed for low maintenance

Handling and using LPG is made easier thanks to its sustainable properties. Unlike other gasses, LPG does not produce harmful emissions such as smoke or unburned carbon particles, making it clean and efficient fuel. This effectively helps your appliances last longer.

When it comes to running your business, LPG reduces maintenance on combustion systems which increases the quality of production. On top of this, you also have the option to control your energy more uniformly, thanks to a simple temperature control mechanism.


Gas Appliances Perfect for load shedding

If we had any idea how bad load shedding would get in 2022 then it's likely more of us would have switched to gas long ago. Save yourself the heartache of having to deal with ruined dinner plans and frigid evenings by considering these helpful gas appliances.

  • Portable gas cookers - these handy little cookers are generally sold for camping out, but with load shedding becoming more and more prominent, we’re finding that they’ve now become more popular indoors.
  • Gas stoves - If you’re considering a more permanent investment then gas stoves are the way to go. Not only do they allow for a more precise heating regulation, but they’re also incredibly cost-effective.
  • Other effective appliances such as gas fridges and geysers are also making a serious comeback. Gas geysers, in particular, are no longer built using the archaic systems of the past and are quickly replacing regular geysers thanks to their fast and effective heat distribution.
