Induction Stove Or Gas: Which One Is Cheaper?
The electrical consumption of a glass-ceramic is greater than the consumption of gas stoves. If we only take into account how much a gas stove consumes and what the electric glass-ceramic consumes, we will obviously opt for gas, however, it is necessary to take into account two fundamental aspects when contracting gas or light for our kitchen and calculate its cost. The gas kitchens require a special and continuous maintenance. The gas networks are forced to be revised every little time, in order to detect any anomaly in the general network as well as in the particular circuit.
Besides the expenses derived from the maintenance, it is also necessary to take into account the type of invoicing that we have contracted. If we have cheap electricity with a company that offers us advantages month by month in our bill (such as a rate with hourly discrimination that presents a cheaper electricity schedule), the difference can be much less, even equating the consumption of an electric stove with that of a gas stove.
The gas stove is cheaper with a traditional electric company, however you should take into account both the maintenance costs of the gas stove, and the type of bill from your electric company.
Advantages of using glass ceramics and a gas stove
When installing our kitchen, many questions can arise: how much do induction plates, glass-ceramic or gas stove, how can I save energy at home? In this post we review the advantages of using glass-ceramic or gas, and how this decision influences your electricity bill.
Advantages of using glass ceramics
The glass-ceramic is nowadays the most used system at the moment of deciding what type of kitchen we install in our home. Its advantages are many and we show you the main ones below:
The glass-ceramic continues being cheaper than other solutions, like the induction kitchens
Its cleaning is much easier. It is easy that the glass-ceramic does not lose its bright finish if we use specific products
The glass-ceramic supports all types of containers for cooking
A large amount of residual heat is obtained, so it is possible to finish the cooking with the plate turned off to consume less
The consumption of a glass-ceramic fire is around 825 w/h. Compared with the consumption of other household appliances, on the one hand we would have a juicer, which can reach 200 w / h, or a vacuum cleaner that comes to consume about 1,200 w / h.
The consumption compared places the glass-ceramic at the same level of consumption as a microwave or an iron (these data are adjusted to the consumption of a single fire).
Advantages of using the gas stove
Gas stoves are still used in many homes today. These are some of their advantages:
Gas heats very quickly, unlike glass ceramics.
Gas consumes little energy compared to other systems
These kitchens admit all types of containers
They allow you to adjust the amount of heat very precisely, which is why they are used in most restaurants.
A gas stove consumes approximately half as much as an electric one. If we used to set the consumption of a glass-ceramic fire at about 825 w/h, in the case of gas devices it would be around 400-450 w/h.
