Introducing a handy new online tool that lets you compare the estimated costs of natural gas water heating with other energy options like LPG, solar and electricity. Before simply investing your hard-earned cash in what you know, take a little time to research and find out what might actually benefit your home better in terms of cost, lifestyle and future-proofing.
Before getting stuck into home renovations, take some time to consider your household type and lifestyle needs. Are you on multiple levels with multiple bathrooms? Have you got a busy family or teenagers that use bucket-loads of hot water? How well is your home insulated against the elements? These questions and more will help you determine your appliance and energy needs – because heating your water and your home are simply not a one-size fits all, out-of-the-box solution.
Natural gas costs around 1/3 of the price of electricity per unit of energy when you use it to power the appliances in your home. For busy households, gas is often the most economical energy option, and offers benefits such as endless hot water with a continuous flow water system. But don’t take our word for it. That’s where this new online water heating comparison tool comes in handy.
Compare your current water heating solution against a natural gas option and see how the costs might stack up for you.
It makes sense to do your homework. If you have natural gas piped in your street, it’s worth investigating this extra energy option that could benefit you. If you’re in the Lower North Island, The Gas Hub can answer your natural gas questions, just phone 0800 GAS HUB or find them online.
