Do You Require an LPG or Gas Central Heating Installation In Droitwich Spa?
If you are looking for a new LPG or gas central heating installation in Droitwich and want to keep costs down, you will want to read further!
Be aware, poorly installed central heating systems can be a substantial financial liability to the owner!
It is important to note, equipment used, installation practices, system design and the choice and design of that system will have huge implications on how much your system costs to run and maintain, not just how much to install.
For example, condensing boilers can lose as much as 15% in efficiency through poor system design, installation and calibration. Add to this thermal loss from poor installation and other bad practices, this number can rise even further, especially over time. It is very common for new gas/LPG central heating systems to be operating 8-10% under their potential.
Typically, boilers last 12-14 years. Better choices of boiler, which does not necessarily mean the consumer needs to spend more money, which could even save money over some options, could last as long as 18-20 years with fewer repairs. If you are in your forever home or have long-term property investments, the correct gas/LPG boiler choice can save you thousands of pounds over the long-haul.
Furthermore, boiler and heating systems are often underperforming and suffer from premature component failure from installation defects. A well-installed system can give many years of trouble-free use with exceptional performance. A poorly installed one can fail to provide sufficient heat and hot water and could break down more frequently with expensive repairs, all growing frustrations and operational costs.
As with boiler choice, the component choice is also essential. Many installers will fit what is best for them, often basing that decision on profit margins, resulting in lower-quality equipment. We base our decisions on what is best for the customer, which is focused around providing the most durable and effective products at the best value. Everything we install is proven, durable and does what it is supposed to.
It goes without saying, the central heating installation sector is a minefield, and there are very few companies that put the customers’ interest at heart.

Frequently Asked Questions
It is highly likely that boilers will be used in the UK for a long time, with the most likely direction that hydrogen is used as a fuel source in the future.
As current gas & LPG equipment will be able to run on hydrogen with little to no alternation and is already running on supplemented biogases in parts of the country, it would be a good bet to predict boilers are here to stay for the foreseeable future and will remain the cheapest form of heating.
Compared to mains gas, no they do not. Not only are they considerably more expensive to install, but the fuel heat pumps use (electricity) is typically five times more than mains gas.
Given that the best heat pumps give 4-5kW of heat for every 1kW of electricity they use, even with the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI), the sheer cost of a typical installation will dwarf any payback the scheme provides compared to a well-installed mains gas central heating system.
However, heat pumps are great solutions for the off-grid properties for those in larger properties which can afford the initial outlay. Heating oil prices are extremely volatile, and LPG gas is typically 3-4 times more expensive than mains gas depending on how it is purchased (in bulk or via cylinders).
LPG and to a lesser extent oil heating systems are often more cost-effective in smaller to medium properties as they are far less expensive to install and this cost goes a long way with fuel.
It depends on the situation. This is why you need an honest company who offers a wide range of solutions. Most other companies/installers will only promote what is best for them, not what is best for the consumer. If we think your best solution is with a service we do not provide, we will tell you to seek that solution.
If you already have an oil fuelled central heating, unless you have a large property, then generally it is not cost effective to swap onto LPG. However, if you were installing a new system from scratch, so long as you have the space for a bulk vessel, LPG would be the way to go in a typical property. For larger off-grid properties, heat pumps could be the better solution.
From time to time LPG suppliers, such as Calor, provide free bulk vessel installation which can be a big incentive.
