For the scores of commercial premises across the UK that aren’t connected to the mains gas grid, finding a reliable, readily available fuel that won’t cost the earth can be a real challenge. As familiar territory, oil is often the go-to choice for powering everything from heating and hot water to cooking facilities and manufacturing processes. However, with its reputation for volatile pricing and pollution, today’s budget and environment-conscious energy managers are increasingly seeking out cleaner, more cost-effective alternatives.
A simple switch to LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) could deliver significant savings on your energy costs, as well as reducing your carbon footprint. Not only is LPG cleaner burning and therefore cheaper to run, but condensing LPG boilers cost less to install than oil boilers – and need far less ongoing maintenance too.
In fact, a new LPG boiler runs at 95% efficiency, which could reduce your business’s energy consumption by 5%. Combined with the installation and maintenance savings associated with LPG, and its ongoing carbon reduction benefits, this decrease in energy consumption could deliver significant annual savings across your business. Flogas Britain, a leading UK LPG supplier, also has a team of specialist engineers who can advise on efficiency-enhancing control systems that could boost savings even further.
Savings aside, LPG is an incredibly versatile fuel too. Available in both bulk and cylinder supply options, it has a variety of commercial uses that you may not even have considered. In the leisure sector, for example, everything from rural hotels and pubs to golf clubs and spas are making use of LPG to heat swimming pools, power golf buggies, fuel barbecues and much more. In industry, it’s becoming an increasingly popular choice for powering industrial processes, kilns and furnaces, not to mention as a cleaner, greener forklift truck fuel.
