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.

If you're currently using coal, wood, wood pellets, peat or any other solid fuel type, you could be missing out.

  4. Enjoy instant heat and hot water
  5. Lower your environmental impact with the lowest carbon fossil fuel available in rural areas
  6. Price security, know what your LPG price will be every time you order
  7. Underground tanks – out of sight, out of mind
  8. Lower carbon output – LPG emits 35% less carbon than coal
  9. Cleaner fuel – there’s no dirty piles of coal or logs with LPG
