We’re being contacted by more and more people keen to take the next step in their sustainable home journey – ditching gas.
A growing awareness of the emissions from gas production and delivery are fuelling huge interest in the all-electric home.
Australians are also becoming more concerned about the health impacts of using gas for cooking and heating, especially in poorly-ventilated homes. And rising prices for gas mean the days of it being a cheap energy source are over.
If you’re already generating your own energy via rooftop solar, the logic of going all-electric is especially compelling.
Big gains in the efficiency of electric appliances sweeten the deal even further.
This recent Environment Victoria report provides plenty of compelling evidence – including estimates that an efficient all-electric home can knock two full years off a home loan if energy bill savings are put onto a mortgage.
So how will you kick off your all-electric journey?
Understanding your home energy use is a crucial first step – you might upgrade to an induction cooktop, or invest in a split system for your heating and cooling – whatever your plan and budget, electrifying your home is a win not only for you, but also for your community and our environment.
The future is electric – let’s make it happen!
