Saving Money with LPG

I am always a fan of trying to save a bit of money
when I can so was very interested in the following infographic produced by Calor Gas. We have an oil burner and it does seem to
have its own set of problems, if we ever run out of oil and then have a
re-delivery its often hard to get it started again, it ends up having an air
lock which requires the boiler to be re-primed each time! As we always tend to leave it last minute
ordering more oil it happens quite regularly and it can get expensive calling
out someone to get it going again (unless of course you know what your doing
yourself!). So I do think we need to
look at other options, researching lpg suppliers
to see what is available instead, as its not always easy to get
someone out quickly when your in desperate need for a nice hot bath you want
everything to run smoothly.

So I am all for a boiler requiring less maintenance – life
can be hard enough when you have two boys that keep you on your toes, you do
not need the boiler giving you a hard time too! I want life as simple and uncomplicated as possible and that
includes the ability to get hot water and warmth when I want it.

According to the infographic below domestic oil is the
third most stolen item in the countryside, that is quite an alarming statistic
and another reason I won’t be too distraught when our current boiler gives up
the ghost.

LPG boilers also emit
less carbon dioxide than heating oil so by making the change you are doing your
bit for world something that interests my youngest as every night he wants to
have a chat about the O-Zone layer, he seems to have a bee in his bonnet and is
really concerned bless him! I think he
would be delighted to hear something so simple could make a difference. Our boiler is hanging on (just!) so I won’t
put off the change forever.
