What is LPG?

Before learning about the advantages of LPG, it is important that you understand what LPG is. LPG is similar to natural gas, a popular energy source, but it is made of a different chemical compound. Though LPG and natural gas are both considered to be hydrocarbons, LPG is made of propane or butane, which gives it advantages over natural gas and even oil heat. In normal conditions, LPG is a gaseous material but it is often stored under pressure that turns it into a liquid. This makes it very easy to transport, one of the many advantages of LPG over other energy sources.

Advantages of LPG Over Other Energy Sources

  • LPG is easy to transport
  • It has a higher heating value, allowing you to heat your home at a lower price.
  • LPG doesn’t contain sulphur, so it burns a lot cleaner than energy resources like oil.
  • Liquid Petroleum Gas burns consistently, making it more reliable than other forms of energy.
  • LPG is also perfect for those who don’t have access to natural gas lines. Since it is easily transported and even able to be stored underground with little danger, many UK households will find advantages.
  • Finally, you will find that LPG is more environmentally friendly than other sources of energy. Though all energy sources will release carbon dioxide, when compared to oil, LPG only releases 81% of the carbon dioxide that oil does. When compared to coal, another energy option, LPG only releases 70% of the carbon dioxide.

What our clients are saying

We have just had a delivery this morning. The driver is new and I just wanted you to know how efficient he was and very friendly. He told us about your new vehicle which will be able to access hard to reach properties if the weather is bad and the big tankers cannot get access. Mr S
We had an exceptionally busy period at the pub in summer and ran out of gas from a delivery which would normally have lasted much longer. I rang Northern Energy mid-morning when we discovered our situation and they delivered within 20 minutes! We were all very impressed by the speed and helpfulness of the service which got us out of a potentially very difficult situation. Lunch service went on as normal in our pub.
Thank you, Northern Energy!

Yes I would recommend you, I score 10. The 'PPP' keeps my tank topped up, no VAT to pay. A very good efficient firm with nice friendly delivery men. Thank you Mr W
Been with you now since 2005 would recommend you to anyone Mr W
Always good service from ring (a day before) to say delivery is on it's way to the tank being filled up, thanks guys! Mr T
Last year I recommended you to my neighbour and he is equally happy with your service. Mrs S
I have just recommended your company to a friend who's just moved into a new home and uses oil. I have given you 10 in ratings. Mr M
We find the whole service really easy & efficient Mrs M
We are new customers, but the one delivery we have had came on time. The driver was very friendly and quick with no mess. Very pleased and no need to go elsewhere! Mrs D
I have always been very happy with the service I've recieved from Northern Energy and in fact have got you 2 more customers in the village. The delivery men are always courteous and I think that goes a long way! Northern Energy get a five star rating from me. Mr C
I am pleased with your automatic top-up system. It saves me worrying about running out and presumably saves you money if you can top up a group of neighbouring customers in one delivery - so win-win. Mr D
We have been very impressed with the service received from Northern Energy. The team are always very friendly and always willing to help in any which way they can. If we are cancelling a delivery there are never any questions asked. Recently we had a new oil tank fitted and the oil was delivered within two days of being ordered (we had allowed up to 5 days). Mr K
As a customer I love the all inclusive package of oil and maintenance that you offer. As a second home owner, we never run out of oil like we do ‘at home’ because you keep us ‘topped up’. Mr C
