In South Africa, the main types of gas used for heating and cooking in our homes and businesses is LPG and Natural Gas or Mains Gas.
LPG is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases also called propane or butane. It is almost entirely derived during the refining of petroleum. LPG can be used for space heating, water heating, cooking, commercial applications and powering vehicles.
LPG is normally supplied in pressurised steel bottles or LPG gas cylinders. There are various sizes and the length of time they last depends on how often you use the gas and what for.
LPG is more efficient than traditional fuels and is more environmentally friendly. It is a great option if you cannot get piped or natural gas to your home or office.
