LPG Gas, Liquid Petroleum Gas installation
LPG is a highly efficient fuel, so you get a good return on every unit of energy. Modern condensing boilers, which use hot flue gases that are wasted in a standard boiler, now achieve efficiencies of 90% and more.
Replacing a standard LPG boiler with a highly efficient
modern condensing boiler is a relatively straightforward job.
In parts of the UK where there is no mains gas network to connect to, such as rural areas, some homes use liquid petroleum gas (LPG) instead. This normally used in a wet heating system where an LPG-fired boiler heats water, which provides central heating via radiators and hot water through the taps in your home. The main difference between mains gas and LPG is that it is delivered by road and stored in a tank, which you may have to buy or rent from your supplier. Some boilers designed for mains gas can be converted to use LPG.
