Effects of LPG & Gas Pipeworks

Poor installation and design can impact the following areas:

The way appliances, which use the LPG/Gas pipework, work
The welfare of the household and those living nearby

If gas/LPG pipework is incorrectly sized, it can impact how well it works, and in serious cases, how safely the gas appliances, which are connected to it, can work.

With mains gas and LPG supply systems, the gas pressure is regulated. Appliances, which use gas and LPG, are made to work at certain pressures and need specific flows, so they can operate as intended. Thus, it is vital to ensure that any pipework installed from the meter/cylinder to the appliances within the house is effectively designed to avoid the restricted flow or a reduction of the working pressure. Badly-designed pipework will not solely impact negatively on both of these areas, but can, in serious cases, also cause appliances to be hazardous.

Other installation malpractices can result in problems such as deterioration of the gas/LPG pipework and gas escapes. Mains gas, and particularly LPG, can be incredibly dangerous when leaks occur within a property or in other areas where they can accumulate. Historically, there have been countless occasions of explosions caused by both forms of gas, which not only destroy property, but also cause loss of life.

When installation is done properly, gas and LPG pipework is incredibly safe and can offer reasonably-priced fuel to be used for a variety of appliances. It is essential not only to employ a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer for this line of work, but also one who has vast experience and is highly-competent.

How do LPG And Mains Gas Differ?

LPG and mains gas vary in several ways, but, on the whole, LPG is usually used for appliances within properties where there is no access to mains gas. It is also frequenty used within mobile homes and static caravans.

Mains gas is a much cheaper alternative to LPG. LPG is available in two ways: in bottles and in a bulk vessel. Bulk vessel prices are the lowest way to get LPG, but are usually still 2.5-3 times pricier than mains gas per kW. LPG cylinder fuel prices can be location- and supplier-dependent, but these are usually 6-12 times more costly per kW than mains gas.

LPG is a stronger fuel, and as a result, for every cubic metre, it will give you more energy than mains natural gas can produce. Therefore, gas appliances, which rely on LPG, use less than they would if they ran on mains gas.

However, LPG is also more erratic than mains gas; to become explosive within in an enclosed space, much less is needed. LPG is also denser than air, so unlike mains gas, which is the opposite and lighter than air, LPG will collect easily at a low level. This means it can be more challenging to spot a gas leak and can reach dangerous levels much more quickly.
