Every Day Uses of Gas in the Home
Like most Australians, you probably use gas every day without even realising it. Over the course of 2015-16 it provided as much as 24% of Australia’s total energy use!
Natural gas’ most common use in the home is cooking. The kitchen is a space we spend a lot of our time in, so having a cooktop that looks great and performs well is important.
The Classic BBQ
A favourite for Friday dinners, family get togethers or Sunday lunches with friends. The vast majority of Australian homes own a gas BBQ (around 65%), with some researchers calling us the ‘BBQ capital of the world’. Whether you’re partial to a classic snag or a vegan pattie, you can’t beat a gas bbq. Not only does gas let us cook up a storm in the yard at home, but it powers the ever-amazing sausage sizzle, which no Bunnings or local fete is complete without.
There’s nothing like a hot shower after a long day. In fact, the average Aussie showers around 8 times a week. Gas can cut upfront costs associated with water heating, and provides instantaneous heating so you don’t waste water while you’re waiting for it to be warm enough to hop in.
A lot of home appliances run on gas too. Tumble dryers, fireplaces and outdoor heaters can all run on gas reliably and affordably.
Whether you know it or not, gas plays a big part in almost all Australian homes. Most of us use it for cooking, hot showers or weekend BBQs with the family. Gas is also vital in keeping local businesses, schools and hospitals powered and running.
