Which gas is best for you?

There are two main types of household gases, Natural Gas and LPG. These gases both require stringent qualification and should only be handled by a professional Brisbane gas fitter due to State and Federal Laws and Regulations. Gas is a great alternative for many household utilities and can even be a more cost-effective strategy than solely relying on electricity. As Brisbane gas fitting professionals we understand the intricacies of both gases and can assist you in making the right decision.

Natural Gas

Natural gas is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture, consisting primarily of methane. Natural gas is an odourless and highly combustible gas sourced from a variety of different fuel deposits. One important property of Natural Gas is that it is lighter than air, leading to a faster and safer rate of dissipation if a leak occurs. A Brisbane plumber can connect natural gas directly to your home through the mains pipe making it easier and more convenient for you. For generating heat, hot water, or on stovetops natural gas is a cheaper alternative than LPG. Another benefit for environmentally conscious people is that it emits less carbon dioxide than fossil fuels such as LPG. For those who use gas more often natural gas is a great choice. 


LPG stands for ‘liquified petroleum gas’, it consists mainly of propane and is a by-product of processing other fossil fuels. The heat produced by LPG is slightly higher than that of natural gas. It is ideal for those living in regional areas without connection to the mainline, looking for a smaller upfront cost or those who use gas less frequently.
