  • Cheaper to buy and run

    LPG boilers are usually cheaper to buy and simpler to install than oil boilers. They can also be more than 50% cheaper. And as LPG boilers produce less ash and soot than oil equivalents, they’re easier and cheaper to maintain and service.
  • Familiar

    Domestic LPG is the closest alternative to mains gas. LPG boiler controls operate in the same way as those on standard boilers to provide heating and hot water, a controllable flame for cooking and cosy real flame fires.
  • Value for money

    LPG is a highly efficient fuel, so you get a good return on every unit of energy. If you’re replacing an old boiler with a modern condensing LPG model, you could improve the efficiency of your heating system by as much as 20%!
  • More environmentally-friendly

    LPG has the lowest carbon emissions of all fossil fuels, emitting around 35% less CO2 than coal and 12% less than heating oil. It’s a clean-burning, smoke-free fuel, making it the recommended gas for off-grid homes.
