Why You Should Convert Your BBQs Gas to Your Homes Mains

As we head into the warmer months, it’s the perfect time of year to invite some friends and family over for a BBQ. We Aussies love entertaining and we especially love our BBQ’s, but getting your BBQ fired up can sometimes be a hassle. How many times have you thrown your meat on the grill, only to run out of gas a few minutes into your cook?

As fantastic as it is to have your own BBQ in your backyard, it can be inconvenient always ensuring you have a full gas bottle connected for an uninterrupted cook. This requires constant trips back and forth to the petrol station which is not only annoying, it’s adds up and can be quite costly too.

Did you know it’s possible to make whole process simpler by connecting your BBQ to your mains gas?

Connecting your backyard BBQ to your gas line at home means you will never run out of gas mid-cook and it gives you the freedom to cook with complete peace of mind. Put simply, you will never worry about serving your guests undercooked meat again! Natural gas is much cheaper than LPG so you are guaranteed to save money too. Some portable gas bottles can even cost as much as four times the price of natural gas!

If you’ve decided to make the switch, firstly ensure your BBQ is compatible with conversion to mains. Most are, but if you can’t find this information on your BBQ manual, your manufacturer can advise you. Gas is highly combustible, so every precaution should be taken when handling gas lines or gas bottles.

Secondly, don’t attempt to do it yourself. ALWAYS use a qualified and experienced gas plumber such as Richmond Plumbing & Roofing. Contact us today to get the right person for the job!
