Gas cookers are some of the most popular in the World, especially as gas can be so much cheaper to use than electricity. However, there is a worry about the diminishing fossil fuels and whether we can continue to use gas to heat our food or even warm our home.
There has been a lot of research into gas cookers that are more environmentally friendly and cheaper to run than the current models we use nowadays. Let’s take a look at some of these now.
Your current gas cooker
Do you know how much your current gas cooker costs you every year? Have you ever taken the time to look at your utility bill and break down the cost? Not many people have, but if they did it could come as quite a surprise. Although it’s general knowledge that gas is cheaper than electricity there are other factors to take into account.
A gas cooker can take quite a while to heat up, especially if one of the older models. If you’ve had your cooker for some time then you will begin to notice the lack of power and the time it takes to get warm. When a cooker starts to slow down it will begin to use more gas to just get to the right temperature. As this happens your utility bills will rocket and more and more of this precious fossil fuel will be used up.
Gas fired eco range cookers for the future
Many of you may have seen an Aga in a beautiful country kitchen and wondered how people can afford one, never mind the cost of running it. There’s also the impact these giant range cookers have on the environment and all of a sudden it is crossed off the kitchen wish list.
There is, however, a lot of research going into a gas fired cooker that is more efficient than your normal Aga range ovens. The cost of running one of these has been estimated at £100 to £300 a year currently, depending on whether you are using it to warm your kitchen on a regular basis too.
The impact that these eco friendly range cookers has on the environment is a lot less than many of your typical gas cookers, including the expensive Aga models. Many people are already counting down the days until they can get one of these beautiful cookers in their homes, without having to worry about the costs or possible damage to the environment.
Alternatives on the market today
Although it may be a little while until the gas fired eco range cooker is available on the market, there is something similar which still ticks many of those boxes. For the same price as the gas cooker (when it is available) as well as an extraordinary saving on your utility bills, you can get an oil fired version instead.
In fact, the average running costs of one of these range cookers is £180 per annum! Due to electricity and even gas being more expensive than oil this is one of the most cost effective ovens you can purchase for your home. Add the fact that it keeps the house warm too and you’re onto a winner.
