Load shedding is worse than ever, and there’s no hope that it will get better in 2022. When it comes to electricity, we are powerless. It is so frustrating when you can’t cook dinner or take a hot shower when the power is out. While we can’t do much about the current state of affairs, we can use an alternative energy solution – gas. Here’s how switching to gas in 2022 will change your life.
Gas Is Readily Available
Unlike electricity from Eskom, gas is always available. There might be a rare occasion where the demand is high, but these short supply moments are typically sorted the following day. It’s best to always keep a spare at home should you run out at an inconvenient time.
Gas Is More Affordable than Electricity
Electricity rates are ridiculously high and still climbing. Some users have to fork out nearly R3 per unit, and the more you use, the more you pay. It doesn’t even make sense.
Gas will cost you around R280 for 9kg, R430 for 14kg, R580 for 19kg and R1460 for 48kg. Keeping your gas stovetop going for around three months will cost you R280 (9kg). And you can cook even when the electricity is off.
Now that food is sorted, you will be surprised to see how much you can save on your monthly electricity bill when you install a gas geyser. You’ll see savings of between 40% and 50%, and you will always have hot water.
Most South Africans have a habit of keeping the geyser switched off for most of the day and only switching it on an hour or so before they shower. But what happens when that hour falls within load shedding? You’ll never have hot water.
Gas appliances are nice to have. But they are also a vital element to every South African household that is sick and tired of load shedding. For more information about gas installations Johannesburg, get in touch with ActionGas today.
