LPG & Gas Pipeworks Affects
Poor design and flawed installation can impact upon:
How well LPG and gas appliances served by the pipework work
How safe your home, occupants and neighbours are
If gas and LPG pipework is incorrectly sized it may impact the operation of, and in serious cases, the safety of appliances which are connected to the pipework.
Gas and LPG supply systems’ pressure is regulated. All appliances, which run on LPG and mains gas, are designed to operate at certain pressures and need particular flows so they can work properly. Thus, any pipework installations from the meter/cylinder to the appliances within the dwelling need to be effectively designed to avoid restricting the flow or lowering the working pressure. Ineffectively designed pipework does not merely impact negatively on both of these areas which can affect performance, and in worst case scenario, it can make appliances work hazardously.
Other instances of bad practice when installing these systems can cause problems like deterioration of the gas/LPG pipework and gas leaks. Mains gas, and especially LPG, are incredibly dangerous when leaks occur within a home or in other areas where they can gather. There are many examples of explosions, relating to both types of gas, where both destruction of property and death have been the outcomes.
When properly installed, gas and LPG pipework is extremely safe and offers low-cost energy to power a variety of everyday appliances. It is imperative not only to employ a properly qualified, Gas Safe registered engineer for jobs relating to gas, but to also choose on who provides top-quality work and has a wealth of experience.
How LPG And Mains Gas Differ
LPG and mains gas have several key differences, but usually, LPG is used when homes are “off-grid” and therefore unable to access mains gas. It is also common for LPG to be used in mobile homes and static caravans.
Mains gas is far more reasonably priced than LPG. LPG is available in two forms: bottles and bulk vessels. Bulk vessels are the most reasonably-priced type of LPG, but they are still usually 2.5-3 times dearer than gas from the grid per kW. LPG cylinder fuel prices depend on location and the supply company, but these are usually 6-12 times more expensive per kW than mains gas.
LPG is a richer source of energy, and thus for every cubic meter, it will produce more than mains natural gas is able to. Thus, appliances that run on LPG use less significant volumes of fuel than they would if relying on gas.
LPG is more dangerous than mains gas; it needs less in a restricted area to become explosive. Additionally, LPG is more dense than air, so will easily collect at a low level as opposed to mains gas. This quality makes it far more challenging to spot a leak and can lead to the accumulation of hazardous/explosive levels more easily.
