Benefits of Switching from Electricity to Gas and Why You Should Do It Now

Many South Africans are exchanging their old electric stoves for gas stoves. For some, it might be because it’s the trend right now, but for others, it’s to become more energy efficient. Whatever your reason, have a look at the benefits below so you too can make an informed decision.


Using gas instead of electricity is much better for the environment because it releases approximately 59% less carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere.


An electric stove burner takes time to heat up and cool down, while gas stoves cool down instantly. If you have small children in the house, this safety benefit will save you lots of tears.


While you might have to invest money to convert from electricity to gas, the price of gas is much lower than that of electricity. And it doesn’t increase at such a rapid rate which means you’ll save even more money.

Foodies Will Love It

If you love cooking, you’ll love cooking with gas. You can control the temperature with precision, thus master any recipe. You’ll also gain the ability to experiment with recipes that require open flame cooking.

Reliable Source of Energy

Two words. LOAD SHEDDING. It has become common in South Africa to have unexpected power cuts. And usually, it happens at the worst of times. By using a gas stove, you’ll never have to settle for takeaways again. You’ll be able to cook your family a healthy meal, regardless.
