Are you installing LPG in your home?

That's a smart move. LPG offers a safe, clean and economical way to heat water, cook, warm your home, warm your pool or spa and even bring warmth to your BBQs and patio on chilly days. You can use it wherever you live in New Zealand as it's delivered in 45kg cylinders that fit neatly along the side of the house. The great thing is you can forget about them until the company alerts you it's time to deliver a refill.
With tanks in place, it's time to link up your gas appliances. Water heaters are the first choice for most. One of the wonderful ways LPG has improved the lives of Auckland residents is by ensuring a constant supply of piping hot water in the home. 

When choosing a hot water system for your home, you'll need to get one that's the correct size for your space. To get this right, it's best to call in a professional firm to take care of all your LPG appliance installation needs. One neat device to consider is the tankless continuous flow LPG gas hot water heater system. With this system, there's no need to store hot water in tanks. It just heats the water on demand as it flows through, saving you money and energy.

Another option of appeal to the eco-conscious is the gas boosted solar water system. Essentially this involves using the sun's energy when available. At other times the gas system kicks in to ensure constant hot water.

The other major use of LPG is for cooking. Gas stoves are prized by professional chefs as the flame is so controllable. The heat is instant, too. You don't have to wait for elements to warm up as you do with electric cookers. Bear in mind that natural gas and LPG requires different amounts of oxygen to burn properly, so be sure to buy the right kind of stove or cooker. Your gasfitter can advise you on this.

One concern people have about gas is safety. You don't need to worry as all LPG appliances sold in NZ are subject to strict quality control guidelines and safety standards. The process is administered by a division of the Ministry of Economic Development known as Energy Safety. When you have any LPG appliance installed, it is certified with a legal document. In addition, gas appliances can be only installed by licensed gasfitters with the requisite skills and experience as determined by the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board. 

All this means is that providing you deal with reputable firms, you need never have any safety concerns about running your gas appliances. You should, of course, take the usual care as you would when using any gas or electrical device.

LPG makes a home truly livable with toasty rooms, lashings of hot water for baths and showers, and fast efficient cooking. For more information or to book a gasfitter to fit an applince contact
