LPG & Gas Pipework Installers Vary In Quality!
Gas/LPG pipework installers in Bromyard vary greatly! They may all be Gas Safe registered, but the quality and ethics of the installers differ.
It may concern you to know that many people who are registered do not come from apprenticeships or backgrounds in gas. In reality, many are nothing more than changeovers and extensions of other trades.
Kitchen fitters, plumbers, crash course entrants and varying different types of people from other backgrounds hold registrations with the Register. These sorts are common around Bromyard, you will find few who are time-served.
Generally speaking, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but who would you rather have, time-served gas engineers working on gas since boys, or someone who decided to work on boilers in their 30’s onwards?
On the contrary, our engineers have been out working on gas day in, day out from being in their early teens. It is part of the reason we are soo efficient!
How Poor Installation Affects LPG & Gas Pipework Installations
Incorrect pipework design and installation and affect the following:
- The performance and outputs of LPG/gas appliances served by the pipework
- The security of the property, its residents and its surroundings
- The safe operation of gas appliances
All gas & LPG equipment should operate at set “working” pressures and requires specific flow rates of gas so that appliances can function as intended.
Installation pipework from a meter/cylinder to gas/LPG appliances inside the property requires careful design not to limit the flow or reduce the working pressure. Pipework with poor design will restrict the flow of gas and reduce working pressures at the appliance, which is a common occurrence.
Also, Other poor installation practices can lead to things like gas/LPG pipework deterioration, thus leading to gas leaks. Mains gas, and particularly LPG, can be extremely hazardous when leakage occurs within a property, or in other areas where it can accumulate. History has numerous examples of both gases causing explosions, which not only destroyed property, but also killed
Gas and LPG pipework is safe where its installation is correct. It can provide low-cost fuel that appliances can use to generate heat. In addition to using a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer for related work, it is vital to use one who is highly skilled and experienced to avoid problems and ensure safety.
The LPG and Mains Gas differences
There are several main differences between LPG and mains gas, but in general, Generally, LPG is used for related purposes to “off-grid” properties that do not have access to mains gas. As a result, LPG usage is common in park homes and static caravans.
Notably, mains gas is cheaper to purchase than LPG. LPG is typically supplied in a bottle/cylinder or in bulk. Bulk, which involves the filling of a fixed vessel at the property, is the cheapest form of LPG, but they are still typically 2.5-3 times more expensive per kW than mains gas. The cost of LPG cylinder fuel varies depending on location and supplier, but this is usually 6-12 times higher per kW than the cost of mains gas.
LPG is a richer fuel, so it will produce more energy for every cubic meter than what natural gas supplies will produce. Because of this, gas appliances running on LPG use smaller volumes of gas.
LPG is more volatile than mains gas, making it less explosive in a confined space. Also, LPG is denser than air, so unlike low-level mains gas, which is lighter than air, LPG will collect easily. This can make noticing a gas leak more difficult and can accumulate much easier to dangerous/explosive levels.
