Pros and Cons of LPG Boilers

Liquid Petroleum Gas boilers are some of the cheapest boilers available on the market, however, they have their weaknesses too. TPS Heating have outlined the pros and cons of LPG boilers for all those based in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone, Medway, Ashford, or any other surrounding areas.

Pros of LPG Boilers

As with any boiler or fuel type, there are both advantages and disadvantages. It all depends on your personal situation and which boiler will be right for you and your home. The pros of LPG boilers include cheaper upfront costs than an oil boiler. LPG boilers are some of the cheapest types available and are significantly less costly when compared to natural gas boilers. LPG boilers also use cleaner energy while also producing fewer carbon emissions. This is fantastic as the government is looking for incentives to support this in the coming years. LPG boilers generally produce around 20% less carbon, which makes a big difference to your home's carbon footprint.

LGP boilers are also a great option if you’re looking to replace an old, inefficient boiler. On average, LPG boilers are around 90% efficient, compact in size and therefore perfect for smaller spaces such as park homes or tiny homes.

Cons of LPG Boilers

Of course, LPG boilers have their limitations. The fuel cost overall is higher than gas which means the ongoing cost can be higher. Delivery can also be an issue, and therefore you will always need to keep an eye on the fuel tank so as not to run too low and be left without heat and hot water. 

As mentioned previously, you will also need a storage tank which you will need to purchase or rent. This will need to be taken into consideration before purchasing. It will either be an upfront cost to purchase or an extra monthly bill. It’s an additional cost that you may not have with other fuel types.

When it comes to boiler types, you can get heat only. LPG system boilers and LPG combi boilers include domestic hot water (DHW) heating. This is no different to boilers that use other fuel types.
