Cooking & Hot Water

The Electrification process involves two main stages: sourcing energy from a clean, renewable source (such as solar) and using it to power electrical appliances and machines. If you’re using gas-powered hot water or cooktops at home, in order to achieve Electrification these will need to be replaced with electrical versions. Our licensed and qualified electricians are here to help with this process.

It Starts with Solar

Regardless of the changes you are making at home towards Electrification, the first step is ensuring you are using energy from a clean, renewable source. Solar power is the best way to achieve that for Sunshine Coast households. Talk to our team to get a free consultation and quote for solar on your rooftop.

Switching Hot Water from Gas to Electric

The energy for hot water can come from a renewable source

Primarily, moving from gas to electric hot water is a move to a more energy efficient and sustainable model. Since the electrical versions do not require the consumption of fossil fuels for the production of energy, emissions are reduced; and utilising clean, renewable solar energy enables energy-efficient operation. However, there are also a variety of other advantages involved with switching to an electrical hot water system.

Electric models include heat pump and solar-powered models, offering greater energy savings and environmental benefits. They are easier to maintain, and less complex than gas versions. They are also more versatile in their placement. Furthermore, without a requirement to use gas, the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning is eliminated.

Switching Cooktop from Gas to Electric

Induction cooktop – more control & cleaner

Switching from a gas-powered cooktop to an electrical cooktop such as induction cooktop is a critical part of the Electrification journey. Again, the primary purpose is to move away from fossil-fuel energy sources and the carbon emissions that they create, towards electrical appliances which are powered by clean, renewable energy. There are also other benefits including energy efficiency – the electrical heat process is more efficient, involving less energy loss than gas cooking. Electric cooktops also offer more precise control in the cooking process than their gas counterparts. There is also a health consideration – by taking gas out of homes for cooking, health and emissions risks are reduced. [SRC:]
