LPG is the abbreviation of either liquid petroleum gas or liquefied petroleum gas. LPG is a mixture of gases, chiefly propane and butane. It is produced commercially from petroleum and stored under pressure to keep it in a liquid state. The boiling point of liquefied petroleum gas varies from about -44°C to 0°C (-47°F to 32°F), so that the pressure required to ‘liquefy’ it is considerable and the containers for it must be of heavy steel.

When prepared as fuel, LPG is largely propane; common uses are for powering automotive vehicles, for cooking and heating, and sometimes for lighting in rural areas. LPG is an attractive fuel for internal-combustion engines; because it burns with little air pollution and little solid residue, it does not dilute lubricants, and it has a high octane rating.

Consumers are becoming more concerned about the overall environment, as well as, cost of heating and cooling homes. Homeowners are now beginning to understand the LPG is the cleanest fossil fuel available. According to the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC,) LPG is not a greenhouse gas and is assigned a global warming potential (GWP) factor of zero. All it boils down – LPG is both cleaner and greener than other alternative fuels.

Use of LPG instead of other fossil fuels can make a real contribution to lowering the world’s carbon footprint, helping mitigate the effects of climate change. Greenhouse Gas emissions are having a measurably negative effect on our planet and the majority of these emissions are released in the form of CO2 burning from fossil fuels. For us to make a global impact, we need to get alignment between our energy policies and our climate change policies. Each and every homeowner can also take action and contribute their part.

Although you may not be connected to a mains gas supply, you can enjoy all the benefits of LPG in your home. Bulk gas supplies can be delivered directly to your door and is ideal for many uses around your home such as domestic central heating, living flame-effect fires, real flame cooking, and leisure gas for outdoor barbecues to portable fire pits. LPG is ideal for rural homes without access to the mains gas network.

Switching to LPG from other fuels or from electricity can help reduce your carbon foot print and lower your residential operating costs. Many suppliers in UK can help you assess your needs and alternatives. With that in mind, let’s consider how you might choose a gas supplier in your area.

Whether new to gas or looking to change your existing gas supplier you should know that prices, policies, and services offered by the different suppliers will vary. As with any type of service you contract for, you should carefully check information and contractually terms before selecting your supplier. Questions you might consider asking:

• How are your charged for your gas supply?

• What is the delivery schedule?

• What is average response time to a delivery request?

• Are there cheaper tariffs offered for particular payment methods (i.e. direct debit, credit card, cash, etc.?)

• What service standards are offered by the gas supplier (i.e. repairs, help for older or disable customers?)

• What are the terms for late payment and disconnection requests?

LPG Gas Suppliers must follow specific guidelines and maintain a minimum of standards when selling and supplying gas to you. Most suppliers have signed up to a code of practice produced by the Association of Energy Suppliers (AES). Sales agents must follow the guidelines in the code. The guidelines cover all methods of selling gas, including door-to-door sales (doorstep selling) and telephone sales (distance selling).

When looking to choose a LPG Gas Supplier for your home or business in the UK, you may want to consider the size and geographic coverage they provide, the level of expertise in energy conservation they offer, and their service record with customer satisfaction. Size does matter when it comes to the ability of suppliers to service customers, especially during emergency situations.

Look for LPG suppliers who offer consultations to help you manage your home energy and consult for best ways to enjoy deeper cost savings. Suppliers should offer a top-off or top-up service which means you never need to place an order and you are assured automatic delivery of gas. You may also look to see if the supplier provides routine testing and maintenance of your tank to ensure safety in your home.

LPG Gas is a multi-purpose, modern, clean, accessible, and efficient energy source for your home and business. Look for LPG suppliers, in your area today, and help reduce your carbon footprint now.
