Cooking with gas

There are very good reasons why many professional chefs love cooking with gas. Gas ranges respond immediately when lit, providing precise temperature control and highly-sensitive and instantaneous cooking results. It’s easy to see that cooking with gas offers superior results in every sense. Immediate heat, superior temperature control, even heat distribution, improved usability with a multitude of cookware, and to top it all off, a more affordable heating source: how can you go wrong? Upgrading your kitchen to a gas cooktop can also be managed without major remodelling, as gas cooktops are fairly easy to install and can either be free-standing or built in.

Gas-heated water

Imagine having instant hot water the very moment you need it: no more waiting for freezing shower water to heat, no more running kitchen taps with your hand underneath… Gas hot water systems have the benefit of providing instant hot water which won’t run out, because it is heated as you are using it. There are several terms for this type of water heating: califont, tankless, instantaneous – but whatever name you give it, it’s a fantastic (and cost effective!) option for water heating. Califonts can be installed outside to save space, and offer an easy and efficient way to heat your home water supply. Not only will your water be heated instantly upon ignition, but your water supply will increase as it is no longer constrained by the size of your cylinder. Worried about costs? You may be surprised to realise that your energy bill will actually decrease because you only pay for the water you use, not a drop more! Change to an instant gas hot water system and treat your family and yourself to the delights of hot showers that won’t suddenly leave you in the cold.

Gas Heating for your Home

Keeping your home warm and cosy has never been easier: gas is an easy and hassle-free option, creating a warm and welcoming environment at the flick of a switch. While we all love the romance of a wood fire, the atmosphere can lose it’s glow once you run out of wood, or once you realise that the time taken to heat a room (let alone an entire house) can run into the hours. Electric heating is a fast and easy option for heating your home, but it can be far too expensive, pushing your power bill through the roof. LPG home heating really does have it all! Instant warmth, low power bills, and even living flame options to keep that romantic touch. Combine your power with our LPG gas service for even more savings: take a look at our range of Home Dualfuel Plans for more information.

Thinking of switching to gas heating for your home? Choose from a range of easy options tailored to your needs, including portable gas heating, gas log fire heaters, flued gas heating, and gas fireplaces; with thermostat controls, instant ignition, remote controls and timers. Gas heating is the most energy-efficient and cost-effective method to keep your home cosy and toasty warm this winter!

Outdoor Living Made Easy

Summer evening meals cooked on the deck with a gas-powered barbeque are what kiwi weekends are made of. With a patio heater, brazier or outdoor fireplace, you can keep on relaxing outside after sunset and enjoy that gorgeous evening summer air – no effort, no mess, no fuss. The options with LPG outdoor heating and cooking are endless – why would you choose anything else?
