Considering the global movement towards cleaner living, the wide variety of gas installations provides us with many options to significantly reduce our carbon footprint as well as our monthly expenses.
Although LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) is not as clean as wind and solar energy, it is far cleaner than other fossil fuels such as coal and oil. Furthermore, it is also relatively cost effective.
TYPES OF GAS INSTALLATIONS
These different gas appliances can be installed in private domestic homes or in commercial environments such as restaurants, hotels and guest houses.
It is important to only use qualified and certified gas installers to do your gas installations. This is to ensure that your gas appliances are installed in such a way that they comply with all the relevant safety standards.
5 BENEFITS OF USING GAS
There are numerous benefits of using gas as a means of energy. Whether it be in your home or in your business environment, the use of LPG should be seriously considered.
• Cost effective
Natural gas is easily one of the most cost-effective sources of energy.
Additionally, you have the option of shopping around to find the most competitive prices for the refilling of your gas cylinders.
• Instant results
When using gas to heat a room and the water in your geyser or to cook, you can enjoy instant heat.
There is no need for waiting for extended periods of time for a stove plate or a heater to warm up.
Using gas to warm your geyser water means you can switch it off when it is not in use which saves energy.
When you require warm water, all it takes is to ignite the gas and wait just a few moments before you have steaming hot water.
• Long term savings
Due to instantaneous results when using gas to heat, you will be saving significant amounts in the long run on your electrical bills.
• Reliable source of energy
If you live in a place that is prone to undergoing power cuts due to storms or load shedding, you will not be without a means of heating your room, your water or food.
Gas appliances rely solely upon manual or automatic (depending on the type of appliance) ignition to provide you with the energy you require.
• A cleaner source of energy
It does not produce soot (carbon emissions that are produced by the incomplete burning of organic matter) or sulphur dioxide.
It is believed to produce up to 30% less carbon dioxide than oil and 45% less than coal.
Furthermore, it does not have any pollutant effects on the ground or the underground water because the few by products that may be released during combustion are gaseous and not absorbed.
