Energy Efficiency with Gas Appliances

When it comes to energy efficiency, gas appliances have a clear advantage over electric options. Modern gas hot water systems, ovens, cooktops and ranges use less energy to operate, making them much more cost-effective in the long run.

Natural gas burns cleaner than other fossil fuels, aligning with the values of environmentally conscious homeowners. This makes it a more sustainable household energy source that aligns with green living initiatives.

Contemporary gas appliances exceed Australia’s demanding energy efficiency standards. Opting for a 5 star rated gas cooktop or 6 star oven contributes vastly lower greenhouse gas emissions, benefitting your household’s carbon footprint compared to most electric or LPG units.

Falling natural gas prices nationwide mean significant savings over time following appliance replacements. What’s more, advanced models contain precise burners and pilots that conserve even more gas energy without performance trade-offs.

Choosing modern gas appliances for your Inner West kitchen offers exceptional energy efficiency. Our informed gas fitters offer advice on the latest energy-conserving innovations, helping you lessen environmental impact and save money.

Ongoing Maintenance and Inspections

Annual inspections by professionals are vital to identify potential gas leaks and maintain optimal appliance performance. At Inner West Plumbing, Our licensed gas fitters advise scheduling annual servicing and safety checks following kitchen renovations with gas work.

Our technicians conduct thorough checks on gas pipes and appliances to pinpoint any leaks during maintenance. We conduct pressure tests, check for leaks, assess ventilation and ensure continued compliance. It’s essential that any faults, wear and tear or non-compliances are identified early.

Maintenance inspections also provide the chance to clean your gas appliances, pilots and burners. Built-up debris and grease deposits can hinder efficiency. Our servicing keeps everything clean while giving tips on care and usage.

Additional servicing may be required if you experience any loss of function, irregularities or suspect a gas leak. If you suspect a gas leak, immediately contact Inner West Plumbing for urgent repairs to avert more significant issues. Our emergency callout service is available 24/7.

Maintain vigilance for gas safety between annual check-ups. Contact us immediately if anything seems amiss, no matter how minor.

Look out for sooty pot marks, lazy ignition, yellow flames or the smell of gas near appliances. When it comes to gas safety in your newly renovated Inner West kitchen, prevention is always better than cure.

Gas Appliance Options

Choosing gas appliances for your kitchen renovation offers multiple options that boost functionality.


Gas cooktops provide superior cooking flexibility and heat responsiveness over electric counterparts. Open burner flame control lets you rapidly adjust heat, ideal for precision cooking tasks where temperature matters.

Popular styles include:

  • Professional-grade with multiple high-powered burners
  • Family sized with integrated grills or teppanyaki plates
  • Compact with fewer burners to maximise smaller kitchens

Gas Ovens

Modern gas ovens distribute heat evenly, ensuring consistent baking results. Models with flame failure and auto re-ignition safety also provide peace of mind by automatically shutting off gas if the flame goes out.

Ranges and Stoves

All-in-one ranges merge a cooktop and oven, providing a comprehensive cooking solution. Dual fuel models couple gas cooktops with electric ovens, merging responsive cooking across both technologies.

Our gas fitting experts stay abreast of the latest advancements to recommend top-notch appliances for Inner West homes.
