Everybody knows, gas is the way to go, especially with the increase in the cost of electricity, switching to gas is a no-brainer.
And the only place to get helpful advice and purchase top quality gas products is at Origin Energy, whose showroom is located at the Tafuna Industrial Park.
From now until December 31, Origin Energy is offering 5%-10% off selected appliances, including refrigerators and stoves. There is also a big selection of gas cookers, which make great gifts.
For the new year, pamper yourself to a nice hot bath on rainy days, or a warm shower during the cold early morning hours by purchasing a hot water heater, which will definitely be a great gift for yourself or the entire family.
If you’re not on the market for a four-burner stove, don’t worry. Origin also has available hi-pressure woks so you can get alot done in half the time.
Don’t forget to check out their two-burner stoves which, according to the company, is their hottest selling item. The two-burner stoves come with a stand and are very convenient and easy to use.
Keep in mind that not only will gas products benefit you during this holiday season, they will also come in handy when a natural disaster strikes and the power goes out.
That’s right! With the Department of Homeland Security and the local weather station urging the territory’s residents to be cautious of the current weather conditions and to prepare for the hurricane season, gas products from Origin Energy seem to be the logical choice.
During a hurricane or tsunami, electricity usually gets cut off (sometimes for days or even weeks) and people with electrical appliances are at a disadvantage, not being able to keep their food fresh in the fridge or cook hot meals for the family.
Here’s the good news: You don’t have to be one of them, as long as you stock up on gas and purchase a gas stove or refrigerator from Origin Energy today.
If you have concerns about switching to gas, you are not alone. Many people are hesitant to switch from electric to gas. But that’s only until they speak to the folks at Origin who have all the answers to those pertinent questions and can put your fears to rest.
The company has in stock all the parts for the appliances they sell and they stand by their products, with one-year warranties on all large appliances and three-month warranties on the smaller ones.
Once you buy something at Origin, their friendly, specialized gas technicians will take it from there, going as far as providing safe, reliable installation at your desired location.
Origin Energy has been in business for over 25 years and they have a dedicated staff willing to help you every step of the way, to make your transition from electric to gas an easy one.
For those who live in the Eastern district, there’s no need to make that long drive to Tafuna, as Origin also has a terminal located in Aua, next to Onesosopo Park where customers can get refills and buy appliances.
Numerous stores across the territory also serve as resellers for Origin, meaning people can exchange their old, empty tanks for full ones.
Origin’s belief is: “Together, we can make a difference.”
The company offers this awareness tip to all local residents: “Gas is cheaper than electricity. Help us keep the air we breathe clean.”
 For more information on the current holiday specials or to inquire about the benefits of gas products, call 699-9740 or 644-2170.
Both Origin locations are open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays, from 8 a.m. - 12 noon.
Origin Energy’s management and staff wish the people of American Samoa a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
