Natural Gas vs L.P.G (Propane)


Firstly, you need to know what a Megajoule is. A MJ is a way to measure the energy content of Natural Gas & LPG. Our Frankston Plumber is licensed to carry out work on both of these types of gas.

Secondly, you need to know that kpa or a kilopascal is a way of measuring pressure. Our Mornington Peninsula Plumbers use 2 different types of gas pressures that is supplied by the gas retailer to install into our customers appliances.

Depending on the type of appliance you are installing  and the gas type available in your area would determine what you need. You could call our service Plumber Somerville way to get some over the phone advice.

Natural gas jets are usually bigger in diameter because they require more of the gas to obtain the equivalent Mega joules that the in particular appliance needs to operate in comparison with LPG.

If Natural Gas is available in your area, then you should almost definitely make sure you are running your gas appliances through natural gas instead of LPG. By Price comparison LPG is hugely more expensive on running costs.

If you need to upgrade a new appliance you could visit our online store and have a look through our range of plumbing products that can be installed by our Mornington Pumber, Rosebud Plumber, or our Frankston South Plumber.

You must always use a Licensed Plumber when it comes to do with any type of gas work. The safety of you and your family is on the line and these jobs need to be completed by the experts.
