Smart Homes

Save money and reduce emissions by using a clean, burning smoke-free fuel that promotes better air quality.

LPG has a higher heating value than most other energy sources, allowing you to heat your home at a lower price. LPG doesn’t contain sulfur, so it burns a lot cleaner than energy resources like oil. LPG burns consistently, making it more reliable than other forms of energy.

To better understand the advantages of using LPG products we will give you a concise breakdown of its uses. Liquefied Petroleum Gas is the closest substitute to using mains gas and is used for cooking, water heating, and central heating. It can be stored in tanks [above or below ground] or within cylinders and is delivered to a domestic property via a pipeline connection. If your property is not connected to the main gas lines, then LPG proves to be a great alternative.

One of the most appealing benefits of LPG is the fairly stable running prices that don’t see the same level of fluctuation as its alternative. This makes it much less likely to see an unwanted price hike when looking at your fuel bill.

For those who are environmentally conscious and looking to lower their carbon footprint LPG is the most practical option, having the lowest carbon emission levels of all fossil fuels available in rural areas, emitting 50% less CO2 per kWh than electricity, 30% less than coal and 19% less than heating oil. [*subject to frequent price fluctuations] Alongside the lower emission levels LPG burns cleanly, leaving no soot and minimal sulphur emissions. The main by-product of LPG is only carbon dioxide and water – with there being no ground or water hazards.

Being more compatible with renewable and low carbon technology result in LPG being the ideal back-up fuel source for solar thermal water heating, which is not connected to main gas lines, helping those looking to satisfy certain planning permission prerequisites.

LPG Benefits Include:

  • The storage options available to LPG tanks and cylinders are very flexible, able to be placed underground, so long as the lid is visible. In the unfortunate events that there is a leak, the fuel vaporises leading to no contamination of nearby soil or freshwater.
  • LPG tanks are highly secured, preventing any attempts to siphon the gas.
  • All LPG installers must be CORGI registered, meaning domestic owners’ interests are protected.
  • LPG is an accessible and flexible fuel, allowing it to power central heating, water heating, cookers and fires with an actual controllable flame for gas hobs, ovens and fires.

Being approved service providers for LPG products and central heating system manufacturers, we have the ability to source a large number of specialist parts quickly and price efficiently for your repair and service requirements.
