  • Why use gas and what are its main benefits?
    Gas is a realiable source of energy and there is plentiful supply of gas in New Zealand for domestic and commercial needs.

    Gas delivers heat the instant it is needed. It is fast, efficient, environmentally friendly, and provides totally precise control for cooking and heating and a continuous hot water supply.

    Gas costs cheaper than electricity, thus it is the economical choice. Bearing in mind that water heating and space heating have the biggest effect on your power energy bills, by switching to gas you will save money on your energy bill.

    As a guide, in an average home, using about 500 litres a day at 45 degrees C, the continuous flow hot water heats water for half the cost of an electric tank.
