Inexpensive to buy, these systems are among the most popular choice and can be connected to a range of electricity tariffs dependent on demand.

Natural Gas & LPG

Natural Gas & LPG – Natural gas is cost effective and environmentally friendly, if you have the connection for it. If you don’t have a connection to metered natural gas, there’s an option for bottled LPG gas. Unlike electricity, gas rates don’t vary throughout the day, making this a cheaper option over electricity. Though environmentally friendly, LPG has a significantly higher running cost than NG.

Using the sun to heat water, these systems are the most environmentally friendly, but also the most expensive to buy (though government rebates and other incentives can help offset this cost). However, the right system will pay for itself over time, with very low running costs. Bear in mind that costs will increase on overcast days, when you’ll need to boost your hot water supply by alternate means, such as electricity or gas.


What our customers are saying

    This was the first time I contacted Todd from Murphy Plumbing and Gas. My experience was very positive. Communication was quick and service was excellent. I only had a small job to be done fixing the pipe connections from my water tank to the pump which had recently been moved! I am pleased to say all is now working beautifully! I will definitely contact Todd again for any future plumbing needs! Highly recommended!
