The home gas appliances to look out for in 2018

Are you considering making the switch to natural gas? Or are you looking to expand the range of gas-based appliances in your household? Well, look no further. We’ve compiled the latest and greatest in gas technology for the home, including solutions for heating, cooling, cooking, outdoor and laundry. Remember, the more appliances you have running on natural gas, the less you’ll pay per unit overall – so get connected and start saving.

 

ENTERTAIN IN STYLE

When it comes to making the most of your backyard, natural gas is an easy choice. An outdoor fireplace is an excellent way to conjure up the ambience of a campsite, without all the hassles that come with trekking into the wild. A gas fire pit is also a great way to ensure you’ll be able to enjoy your garden or patio deep into the colder months. Materials-wise, a fireplace can be customised to suit your home – with manufacturers offering options that range from rough-and-ready oxidised steel right through to sleek slate-and-glass combos. Find a style that’s right for you and cosy up to the flames in the comfort of your own backyard.


BARBECUE WITH THE BEST

While we’re talking about the great outdoors, have you considered a natural gas BBQ? Elevate this humble Australian tradition to an artform, naturally, with a gas grill. When you’re cooking with natural gas, there’s none of the hassle of swapping out empty bottles that come with an LPG system – which means no risk of ruining dinner because you ran out of fuel halfway through cooking. A consistent flame, and the ability to fine-tune temperature, means you can get that perfect finish on your steaks – every time. Plus, natural gas burns cleaner than alternative fuels, meaning it’s better for the environment and better for you.


FIRE UP A FEAST

Speaking of cooking – there’s a reason that most professional kitchens run on gas. A gas-based cooktop system in your home gives you access to instant heat at the touch of a button, matched with the ability to dial in the temperature for optimal results. When installing a system, burners can be configured to match the demands of your cooking. Need a long, slow heat to create those perfectly caramelised onions? No problem. How about a rapid flame to stir-fry vegetables in a wok perfectly? Easy done. When you’re cooking with gas, the only limitation is your imagination.


LAUNDER LESS

When it comes to the laundry, updating your tumble dryer to a natural gas model can save you both time and money. Overall, gas-based dryers are more efficient in terms of cycle-time and their carbon footprint (that’s a win-win if you ask us). That shorter run time also converts directly into dollars saved ¬– not to mention precious minutes that aren’t wasted waiting for clothes to dry. Make the switch today and spend more time doing what you love, and less in the laundry.


STAY COOL WHEN THINGS HEAT UP

Natural gas is a common choice for heating systems – and rightly so – but it’s also a great option when it comes to cooling your home. Gas-powered solutions can be installed as individual air conditioning units or as part of a house-wide ducted system. You’ll find a gas-based unit is not only more efficient to run when compared to traditional electric options, they also tend to run quieter. If you’re looking for an all-in-one climate solution that will serve you year-round, there are plenty of split systems available that will handle both heating and cooling.
