What is an LPG boiler?LPG boilers are a great alternative to gas boilers and oil boilers, particularly if you want a central heating system that works in a similar way to these. You may have considered or previously used options such as storage heaters or air heat pumps, but are interested in the benefits LPG can bring to your home. LPG is a combination fuel of liquid, petroleum and gas. This is used to power your boiler and provide central heating and hot water to your home. In the past, most homeowners not on the mains gas grid would opt for an oil boiler or an air heat pump, but LPG offers an alternative that performs effectively while also being more environmentally friendly than a boiler powered solely by oil.
