Give Residential Home Owners What They Prefer - Gas
There has been a trend showing more residential consumers are preferring gas as the fuel for household energy. The Energy Use in the Australian Residential Sector Report 1986 – 2020* predicts that gas is forecast to increase by 39% as a proportion of total energy use by 2020.
Big Growth in Use of Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water Systems
The biggest trend is the shift away from electric storage systems to gas or combinations of solar with gas or electric boosting. The B.I.S. Shrapnel Household Appliances Market Report in 2016 ** states that “electric storage hot water systems are now followed by gas continuous flow models (28%) which have expanded nationally by seven percentage points since 2014, and then gas storage hot water systems (18%). The profile of continuous flow hot water systems across Australian households witnessed a nine percentage point expansion in the ownership of gas continuous flow models between 2012 and 2016.”
Consumers Prefer Cooking with Gas
A very significant move is the shift away from electric cook tops towards gas. This trend is driven by consumers preferring the improved control and performance afforded by gas. The popular cooking shows all use gas, as well, further reinforcing the advantanges of gas.
In 2016 the B.I.S. Shrapnel Report found that “nationally, 54% of Australian households use gas for cooking purposes”.
Gas Heating Highly Preferred
In the report gas heater consumers were asked why they chose gas over electric heating. For non-ducted consumers, cheaper running costs (36%) are the leading driver, marginally ahead of efficiency (35%). The stand-out driver for ducted gas consumers is cheaper running costs, recording a high 57% preference.
LPG is Economical, Reliable and Accessible
LPG is already used by over one million residential, commercial and industrial customers through-out Australia and this number is expected to increase with the rising electricity and natural gas prices.
LPG is available in virtually every area within Australia and is not only accessible but economical, reliable and versatile as well as being better for the environment!
