Oil vs. LPG
Which is best for you?
Most off grid homes in the UK use oil for their central heating, but increasing numbers are choosing LPG to heat their homes. If you’ve purchased an off grid home and a modern heating system is already installed, you may not want to consider OIL VS LPG. However with the government introducing the Clean Growth Strategy soon, rural homes may wish to research which is going to be the best form of energy.
There are benefits to using either option. Both oil and LPG central heating are highly efficient, giving you a great return on every unit of energy.
Both domestic heating oil and LPG are delivered by road and stored in a tank on your premises. Whilst LPG has one of the lowest carbon emissions of all fossil fuels available to homes, both fuels produce significantly less Kg CO2 per unit /Kwh than standard grid sources.
Oil fired central heating works in a similar way to mains gas central heating. The oil is burned to heat water, which is channelled to your radiators and your taps to give you central heating and hot water.
