“Domestic central heating systems are generally poorly designed with care, and the entire installation process is generally rushed. This often shows further down the line, and it doesn’t always take that long before the poor design and installation costs start to affect the homeowner.”
Frequently Asked Questions
It is expected that boilers will be utilized within Great Britain a long time to come, with hydrogen expected to become a fuel source in the future. Current gas & LPG equipment can also run on hydrogen with no or minimal adaptations needed and, in some parts of the country, is already using supplemented bio gases, it would be reasonable to expect boilers to be here to stay for the foreseeable future and will continue to be the cheapest type of heating.
If comparing them to mains gas, this is not true. As well as costing considerably more to install, the amount of fuel heat pumps rely upon (electricity) is usually five times higher than gas. The most efficient heat pumps give 4-5kW of heat for every 1kW of electricity used. Even in conjunction with the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI), the huge price of the average installation will make any payback the scheme provides completely insignificant compared to a mains gas central heating system, which has been installed well.
However, heat pumps can be a great option for homes which are off-grid and for those in larger buildings, where the initial outlay is affordable. Heating oil prices are very unstable, and LPG gas is usually 3-4 times more costly than mains gas depending on how it is bought (in bulk or via cylinders). LPG and to a lesser extent oil heating systems are generally found to be better value for money in small to medium homes because of the lower installation prices and this cost goes a long way with fuel.
Your best option depends entirely on the situation. This is why you need to go with a trustworthy company who are able to offer you a number of options. Most other businesses/installers will only advise what suits them best without taking the customer’s needs into account. Even if we are in the unlikely position of believing that your best solution lies with a service not provided by us, we will still advise you to go with that solution.
If you already have oil fuelled central heating, unless you reside in a large home, then it is not usually cost effective to change to LPG. However, if you were seeking to install a brand new system, as you possess enough room for a bulk vessel, LPG would be the ideal solution to go in a standard property. For bigger off-grid properties, heat pumps could prove a better option.
On occasions, suppliers of LPG, Calor for example, offer free bulk vessel installation, which would be a huge incentive.
