Frequently asked questions

Here are some of the questions get get asked the most. If you can't find the answer to yours, simply give us a call.

  • Why use LPG?

    LPG is a popular choice for heating homes up and down the country. Here’s why:

    • It’s low carbon
    • LPG emits 33% less CO2 than coal and 12% less than oil – with the lowest carbon footprint out of all off-grid fossil fuels.
    • It’s clean
    • As a clean-burning fuel, LPG is smoke-free and emits very low levels of NOx, SOx and Particulate Matter (PM).
    • There’s a secure supply
    • LPG has multiple sources, and is easily transportable meaning it offers a secure, widely available energy source for homes off the gas grid. 
    • It’s versatile
    • LPG can be used practically anywhere for lots of different applications.
    • Highly efficient
    • Gases inherently offer high efficiency which supports optimised performance in the newest boilers.
  • How do I switch supplier?

    Switching LPG supplier is quick and easy as we’ll do everything for you – the whole process is seamless and you can just sit back, relax and leave it to us. You most likely won’t even need to change your tank.

    All you need to do is check that you’ve come to the end of your contract with your current supplier. Don’t worry if you’re in an exclusivity contract as it can now only run for a maximum of two years. Also, if you find you’re still stuck in a contract, just let us know when it ends and we’ll get in touch nearer the time

    Here’s how to switch to Northern Energy:

    1. Get a quote by calling us or applying online
    2. We’ll talk to your current supplier
    3. We’ll tell you when the switch is done
    4. Sit back and wait for you LPG delivery. It’s that simple!
  • How do I switch LPG supplier when on a metered estate?

    Switching LPG supplier needs to be a group decision. Everyone on your metered estate must be out of contract with your current supplier.

    This is why we recommend you first:

    • Check the expiry date of your current contract.
    • Speak with your neighbours.
    • Don’t rush into resigning with your current supplier until you’re sure.

    Remember, if just one home is still in a contract you won’t be able to switch to Northern Energy.

    Once you’re ready to switch, get in touch and we’ll do the rest. It couldn’t be easier and before you know it, everyone will be enjoying the best service and value possible from Northern Energy.

  • Do I need to be at home when you deliver my LPG?

    As long as we can get to your tank, then no, not usually.  However, if you wish, we can let you know we’re coming the day before we plan to make a delivery in case you need to make access available, for instance.

    You can choose how we let you know – we can e-mail you, send you an SMS text message to your mobile phone or just give you a buzz – whichever suits you best. All you need to do is let us know and rest assured we’ll contact you in advance so you can be ready for your delivery of LPG.

     

  • How can I pay for my LPG?

    Choose from a variety of ways to pay – whichever makes life easiest for you.

  • What is Bio LPG

    It is the future of fuel because even though LPG is a low energy carbon source, bioLPG (biopropane) provides an affordable, convenient and non-intrusive ‘drop-in’ solution to decarbonisation. 

    We’re very excited to play our part in supporting the Government in its plans to make it available to homes and businesses across the country. Especially as it not only produces 90% less carbon but is also renewable as it’s made from a range of biological feedstocks and processes. What’s more, you can use it in your existing LPG boiler so there are no retrofit costs. It works in exactly the same way as traditional LPG and gives instant and affordable heat. 

    Here’s why bioLPG is so exciting:

    • It’s renewable
    • BioLPG is made from a diverse mix of biological feedstocks and processes. 
    • It’s low carbon
    • Reduces carbon emissions by up to 90% and carries the same low NOx, SOx and PM as conventional LPG. 
    • Boilers are Bio ready
    • Your existing boiler can use it so there’s no retrofit costs. 
    • You get instant heat
    • Enjoy immediate heat or hot water on tap.
  • When will you be in a position to supply bio LPG?

    BioLPG is on it’s way but we’re sorry, we can’t give you an exact date as to when we’ll be able to offer it just yet. 

    BioLPG is both renewable and sustainable and can lower your carbon emissions by up to 90%!  What’s more, it’s completely compatible with all your existing LPG products, meaning your boiler can already run on it so there are no retrofit or replacement costs – the ideal future choice for homeowners wanting to lower their carbon footprint.  Just fill up your existing tank with bioLPG and you’re good to go green!

    We’re really looking forward to being able to supply it so you can start using greener fuel. It’s the future and one we’re excited about being part of!
