Is your oil boiler broken or are you looking to replace your old, inefficient oil boiler? Then take a look at the environmental and cost savings that LPG can offer.

If you’re one of the 2 million homes in the UK not connected to the gas grid, you may think your choice of fuel for heating and cooking is limited to traditional fuels like oil and coal.

With various government initiatives targeting the carbon output of fuels used to heat our homes, now’s a better time than ever to consider moving to a low carbon alternative.

Why should I switch to LPG from oil?

  1. Increased fuel efficiency
  2. Enjoy instant heat and hot water
  3. Price security - know what your LPG price will be every time you order. With oil there's no fixed prices and no monthly direct debits - making budgetting difficult.
  4. Cook on a controllable gas flame
  5. No risk of theft - unlike oil LPG cannot be stolen
  6. Underground tanks - out of sight, out of mind
  7. Lower carbon output - LPG emits 15% less carbon than kerosene
  8. Cleaner fuel - there's no dirty oil spills with LPG, and if your oil tank isn't bunded you won't be covered for spills on your home insurance
  9. With LPG you can let fancy telemetry systems keep an eye on your fuel levels and do all your ordering for you
  10. New LPG boilers can be installed in loft spaces to free up space within the house
