You’ve just started to enjoy the aroma of your favourite snags sizzling on the barbecue and the LPG bottle dies. This leaves you with the choice of awkwardly whipping everything inside to finish cooking or making a mad dash to the service station for a gas bottle refill. With a natural gas-powered BBQ it doesn’t have to be that way…
Pool party host
Natural gas is an excellent option for heating your spa or swimming pool. Why? Because heating is fast and on-demand when you need it, plus natural gas-powered pool and spa heaters and can easily maintain any temperature no matter the weather.
A pool or spa pool is an ultimate luxe outdoor accessory, giving you that holiday vibe from the comfort of home – but did you know they can be heated using a gas connection?
If you’re already using natural gas inside your home, gas energy will cost you around one-third the standard unit price of electricity. The same goes for other outdoor gas appliances too. With high efficiencies up to 97%, gas systems are designed for durability and low maintenance.
Enjoy your role as the ultimate pool party host with your pool or spa heated by natural gas.
