Home Forums General Discussion Gas Bottles vs Line Gas Reply To: Gas Bottles vs Line Gas


I too would love to see the complete maths on gas bottles ( the different sizes) versus line gas. The per Kw cost of gas on line is definitely cheaper that electricity… but every time I Audit a house with both electricity and gas the over all cost are considerably higher than someone who just has electricity. The key component is 2 line charges.

If a household is only using gas for Flued heating and cooking then owning the 45kg bottles or even renting may make sense.( I think) Unfortunately what I haven’t been able to ascertain is the per Kw cost of bottled gas. Line gas is between 8.5c to 9.5c. If anyone has the conversions or a formulation we could use it would be very helpful in the recommendation of what direction or investment for a homeowner to consider.
