Building Efficiency Upgrades – Electrification

Many homes use natural gas for water heating, cooking, and space heating. The gas used in your home, whether reticulated natural gas or liquid petroleum gas (LPG), is a non-renewable fossil fuel. As the electricity grid becomes more renewable, gas will remain an expensive fossil fuel.

What Can I Do?

Transition to an all-electric home by replacing your gas hot water system with a highly efficient heat pump, switching to an energy-efficient induction cooktop, and using split systems for heating and cooling. If you’re planning a new home, consider going all-electric from the start.

Going off gas not only reduces emissions but also saves money, improves indoor air quality, simplifies maintenance, and future-proofs your home. All-electric homes are more able to take advantage of solar generation and battery storage.

Research shows that in WA, it’s more cost-effective to replace old gas appliances with efficient electric alternatives, with even greater savings on the south coast due to higher gas prices and increased heating needs in colder climates.
