Your Bulk LPG Propane Gas Switch Questions Answered

Oil to LPG (LP Gas)

Whilst the range of heating alternatives has grown in recent years for many ‘off-grid’ energy consumers Oil and LPG are still the preferred energy choice, both being delivered by road tanker and stored in tanks normally to be consumed for heating and hot water.

LPG (LP Gas) v’s Oil

Price and versatility

In recent times LPG has remained cheaper per litre than Oil. Whilst prices do fluctuate based upon local and global demand for energy, LPG continues to be a highly attractive ‘off-grid’ energy option for both home and business

  • LPG is a highly versatile fuel for instant heat, hot water and cooking
  • LPG has lower CO2 emissions (LPG emits 11.7% less CO2 per kWh than heating oil)
  • LPG produces significantly fewer NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) and sulphur particulates than heating oil so virtually no soot is formed.
  • LPG boilers are quieter than heating oil boilers & odour free.

Strict Environmental regulations are in place for the storage of oil and failure to comply is a criminal offence with a fine of up to £5,000. These regulations do not apply to LPG storage.

LPG can’t be stolen in the same was as Oil (thieves can drill into plastic/steel Oil tanks). In recent times thefts have been on the increase with many thousands of reported thefts each year.

24/7 Technical & Emergency Support

LPG suppliers will provide you with 24/7 Technical and Emergency Support.

With Oil you are responsible for the maintenance & upkeep of your own storage tank.

Cheaper Setup Costs & Total Peace of Mind

The set up costs for a new install with LPG are generally less than Oil (cost of an Oil boiler plus having to buy your own storage vessels).

With LPG there is no storage tank purchase cost, the tank install for a domestic above ground LPG tank normally being carried out ‘free of charge’. A 2000 litre Oil tank will cost approx £1,000

Also, LPG boilers generally have a longer life and require less maintenance.

LPG ‘Telemetry’ and ‘Top-Up’

Your LPG provider will normally take control of your LPG deliveries, ensuring that readings are either sent via a smart metering unit (often referred to as Telemetry) or your LPG usage will be predicted based upon your historical consumption, outside temperature and long range weather forecasting.

  • Robert and the team have arranged the best deals for me on LPG for over 4 years now; in the most recent change, saving me over 10p per litre on a 2 year fixed deal from the quote offered by existing supplier (I could have had greater savings still on a 1 year). They’ve been responsive from the beginning and take care of the whole process. Highly recommend them.

  • This is at least the third time we have used this company to negotiate our gas supply renewal. Each time they have got us a better deal from our existing supplier than the deal we can negotiate directly from that supplier.

  • Great communication throughout every step of the process via Email. The price offers are clearly set out so at a glance you can see exactly what you will be paying, and there are no hidden charges in the small prints like other companies try to do. There was no back and forth required between companies to get the best price as LPGSave gave THE best price first time. Absolute joy to communicate with and the transfer process was simple and trouble free. Will certainly be in contact when up for renewal. Great work Robert Flaxman and team!

  • I have used LPG save / Power and gas networks on 3 occasions now when my LPG contract has been up for renewal. Each time they have negotiated an excellent deal for me with good reliable suppliers. They have done so promptly with minimal interaction from me. This year especially I am very grateful they are there.
