On average, 60% of your household fuel bill is accounted for by heating your home and hot water, which is why BHL aim to provide you with the cheapest most reliable heating option. Many households use liquid petroleum gas commonly referred to as LPG, to heat their homes if they aren’t connected to mains gas. LPG is produced from a mixture of hydrocarbon gases compressed to form a liquid. LPG is delivered by road and stored in a tank which you may have to buy or rent from your supplier. If you live in one of the 4 million households that aren’t connected to mains gas, then BHL recommend that you should probably read on. LPG is usually central heating and is normally used in a ‘wet’ heating system where an LPG-fired boiler heats water which can provide central heating through radiators and hot water. The average annual cost for heating and hot water using LPG in the UK is £798 when consuming around 12,500 kWh a year. BHL are excited to be the reason for the deduction in your bill. The price of LPG generally seems to have been at its highest when compared to the price of heating gas or oil, but in the last year the price has dropped – in January 2015 the average annual bill was round £1,040, so why not buy a boiler from BHL? LPG is a highly efficient, similar to us here at BHL, so you’re almost guaranteed a good return on every unit of energy, and a good price on products. Modern condensing boilers use hot flue gases which are often wasted in a standard boiler, and now achieve efficiencies of 90% or more. Don’t worry about appearance, LPG tanks can be dug into the group so not to ruin the appearance of your garden, BHL are here to help you consider all aspects of an LPG boiler.
BHL are dedicated to making things simpler for you, which is why we stock LPG boilers as they are one of the easiest of boilers to install. The first thing to be considered is the tank that provides all the externals for your LPG system. BHL recommend you have someone qualified in the profession, install your boiler – if you were to install your own boiler its warranty would then be void. Once the tank has been installed it will need to be hooked up to the property, however you will need professional assistance for this part. After that the LPG boiler will need to be fitted in a suitable location. Once all is completed it’s time to have it filled with LPG. The cost of using LPG can be significantly lower than oil-fired solutions. This is because the heating system itself is far more efficient, so don’t be surprised if your bills are significantly reduced.

Combination boilers are one of the most popularly purchased gas boilers. A combination boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating oiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space. They are also very cost efficient and energy efficient as water is heating instantly rather than being heated and then stored in a cylinder. BHL love finding benefits to each and every product we provide, therefore another benefit of the combination boiler is that hot water is delivered at mains pressure, which means that you could get a powerful shower without the need for a separate pump. Combination boilers tend to be more appropriate for smaller properties and are ideal where there is little or no loft space. Amongst all these advantages there is also no need for a hot water space, increasing your living space.
System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, however the major heating and hot water system components are built in the boiler itself, making it a lot quicker and easier to install. In addition, there is no need for a tank in the loft space or where the space is earmarked for a conversion. These boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which deliver environmental benefits as well as low energy bills. System boilers are ideal for homes with more than one bathroom that need a constant supply of hot water to any number of taps at the same time.
