For many, the new year brings with it an abundance of new challenges, for some this challenge could be in the form of moving into a new home or even a new state. Pass the packing tape!

However, even if you aren’t quite ready to pack up your home into numerous cardboard boxes and are still on the search for the perfect abode, it’s worth considering your options and must-haves. Do you want open plan living? Is that freestanding bath really a non-negotiable? Beyond the more obvious considerations, there is also the choice between gas and electricity when it comes to heating, hot water, cooking and even cooling your new digs.

Now, we don’t want to sway your preferences - but we do love a freestanding bath and if you want the best out of your bath time you’d also have to go with natural gas. Because who wouldn’t want instant and continuous hot water at the turn of a tap?

Reliable and convenient

Beyond long, hot, bubble baths, the instantaneous nature of natural gas means you can always rely on coming home to a comfortable setting. Turning your house into a home comes naturally with TasGas, as it introduces instant control over the ideal temperature of your home without having to wait on appliances to ‘warm-up’- one of the most desired features for busy homeowners.

When it comes to the most important room in the house - the kitchen, every chef knows that natural gas gives you the control you need to provide a steady temperature when cooking. Plus if you love outdoor entertaining you’ll love the benefits that natural gas can bring to your BBQ. With no need to worry about empty canisters, you can spend more time impressing your loved ones with your grilling skills.

A future proof investment

When buying a property you want to be ensured of its resale potential even if at the time you imagine it to be your ‘forever home’. When a home is connected to the Tas Gas network its value is enhanced because home buyers recognise the benefits and the innate luxury that natural gas offers. In terms of efficiency, a utility like natural gas enhances the appeal and value of your property, a great cherry on top for potential buyers.
