Looking for an efficient electric home? At Electrify My Home, we’re passionate about helping the rapidly growing communities who are embracing all-electric homes as we move towards a more sustainable future. Our goal is to simplify your transition to modern home electrification by completely eliminating the need for gas, which will help lead you to a cleaner and more cost-effective way of living.

Why electrify your home?

Simply put, gas is bad news; it’s a fossil fuel that is as unhealthy as it is unsustainable. Recent studies have indicated that children who are exposed to gas cooking are at a comparable risk of asthma development as those exposed to household cigarette smoke. The same research has shown that gas cooking contributes to as much as 12% of childhood asthma cases in Australia.

Aside from the concerning immediate health risks, the upkeep of gas appliances is considerably more expensive than an all-electric set-up. As such, choosing electricity over gas offers financial advantages on two fronts; firstly, electric appliances are considerably more energy-efficient, which ultimately leads to lower operational costs. Secondly, disconnecting from the gas grid results in substantial savings, with hundreds of dollars spared from fixed supply charges alone.

This is precisely why countless Australian homes have transitioned to solar power, which is the first important step to living in a renewable future. The next step is to ditch fossil fuels such as gas, which is at once an environmentally conscious choice, as well as a terrifically proactive way to reduce your annual costs by hundreds, if not thousands.

Is it worth it? How much can you save?

The answer to this is obviously very subjective and dependent on your location but speaking broadly Australian households have the potential to reduce their annual energy expenses by a whopping $450 when they make the switch from gas to electricity. At the time of writing, gas prices are surging at a rate nearly twice that of electricity, making gas a less affordable option. This trend is particularly challenging for low-income households, especially amid rising concerns regarding the adverse effects of indoor pollution linked to gas use. So a switch from gas to all electric is gentler on the environment, your lungs, and your wallet.

What are the methods of electrification?

Complete electrification involves the replacement of every gas appliance and systems with fully electric alternatives, so the scale of what that entails may vary wildly across different homes. This entails using electric heat pumps or resistance heating for heating, electric induction cooktops and ovens for cooking, electric heat pump water heaters for hot water, electric air conditioning systems for cooling, and electric heat pump dryers for clothes drying. Additional components of electrification may include electric hot water circulation pumps, fireplaces, backup generators or battery storage, EV charging stations, energy efficiency upgrades, and the potential incorporation of solar panels for electricity generation. But again, every home is different.
