LPG is fast becoming one of the most popular home heating options for homeowners and businesses that are unable to access the mains gas network.These properties are often in rural areas of the country and require their fuel to be delivered by a local supplier in a tanker via road. The gas is delivered into the tank and the level can be monitored by a gauge on the top of the tank.LPG can be used to heat your home, provide you with hot water, fuel your gas fire and power your gas cooking appliances. It is stored in a bulk tank outside your property, below or above ground. The tanks themselves are rented off your supplier for an annual fee.
Why use LPG?
So, what are the benefits of using LPG? LPG is a clean burning fuel with a high combustion efficiency. It’s less harmful to the environment than other conventional fossil fuels. It emits low levels of CO2 and is low in other gases which are the main cause of pollution. Also, if the LPG leaked it evaporates quickly so it does not cause any damage or contamination to water or ground. Unlike heating oil which can cause detrimental damage to the environment if it were to leak.LPG boilers take up little space, create no noise or smell and are generally low maintenance. Boilers and gas appliances should be checked annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer to ensure they are working safely.
