With power prices rising and gas prices falling there has never been a better time to convert to gas. Plus right now there are great natural gas rebates to be had. Rebates on space heating, ducted heating, hot water and connection.

Mr Philip Andrews Chairperson of the Gas Works groups said “These are very generous rebates. This year the rebates for installing natural gas space heating is double over last year. In fact if you are not connected to natural gas you can apply for over $2,000 in rebates. As part of the rebated scheme this year there is a new incentive to connect to natural gas. Natural gas is not subject to outages like power has been of late and you seldom hear of interruption of service.” Mr Andrews went on to say “With 5 stores, Gas Works have tremendous buying power with manufactures and only stock top quality brands. Take the South Australian made Pecan Nectre for instance, this unit comes with a free standard flue kit and after the natural gas rebates you can have a beautiful romantic gas log fire in your home for a little more than a $1,000 (plus installation) and the Australian Gas Network offer free connection as an added bonus (T&C’s apply). So if you are looking for economical option to heat your home that is fair more environmentally friendly than coal fired produced electricity then gas is a great option whether it be Gas Log Fire, an easy to install, portable space heater or the convenience of  whole of home ducted solution, then gas could be for you”.
