Alternative Fuels

LPG (liquid propane gas)

This is bottled gas, supplied in high pressured containers and probably more commonly found being used by caravans and mobile homes. It is easy to use, as once a regulator has been installed on to the gas pipe line, it is fairly straightforward to just fit the bottle on to the regulator. LPG fired boilers have dramatically improved over recent years and the latest models are achieving a relatively high level of energy efficiency, assisting with fuel cost management and budgeting.

LPG is cheaper to use than electricity and is effective in properties that are unable to have a mains gas supply.

Used correctly, LPG is perfectly safe as it is stored externally and as it is under pressure, does not spill and cannot be consumed.

This fuel is generally found in more rural areas, where there is no mains gas supply. The oil is stored in large tanks outside of the property and is filled up by a tanker as required. Kerosene and Gas oil are the main 2 oil types used in these heating systems. Oil is a generally used to fire ‘wet’ central heating systems, which are when water is pumped through the system via radiators, to release heat into the property. Oil fired boilers have dramatically improved over recent years, and the latest models carry a relatively high energy efficiency rating assisting with fuel cost management and budgeting.

There is a gauge on the side of the tank and if you have Kerosene fuel, the liquid will be yellow, and if it is Gas Oil, the liquid will be red.

If you find the make and model on the side of the fuel tank, you can either call the manufacturer or conduct a google search which will advise you of your tank capacity.

Generally, purchasing oil during the summer months is the most economical way, as the demand is less. As you get nearer to the end of the calendar year, oil prices generally increase as this is when it most consumers are needing their oil tanks refilled.
