LPG & Oil Boiler - Boiler, Fuel storage, Controls
An LPG Boiler is a boiler that is not connected to mains gas and instead uses Liquid Petroleum Gas to run. LPG boilers have a lower noise output and LPG is a more environmentally friendly fossil fuel. They do require a storage tank to store the gas that is delivered by road.
Like choosing any boiler, the most important factors to consider are the demand for hot water in the house, the amount of radiators that require hot water to heat up and how well insulated the home is. There is an option to choose a tank that can be buried underground, out of site with only the cover to fill the tank visible or a tank can be placed above ground, neat and compact, whichever best suits the property and your needs.

An Oil Boiler is a boiler that runs on oil rather than being connected to mains gas. It is usually because the home is off grid. Oil boilers still come with the option of having a Combi, Regular or System boiler and are still ‘wet’ units relying on water running through the system heating the home and producing hot water.
Most oil boilers offer a lower hot water flow rate in comparison to mains gas boilers and the temperature drops as more water is called for, so do make an allowance for this when choosing a boiler to produce enough heat and hot water for the size of the property.

The Liquid Petroleum Gas is delivered to a property on order by a truck, which connects its hoses to a storage tank and transfers the gas into the tank to be stored for when it is called upon by the boiler to produce heat and hot water. Always check with building regulations regarding how close to a building or boundary a tank can be installed.
The size tank will depend on your fuel consumption and the size of the home requiring the fuel.
There are 3 storage options to choose from;
Underground tank – which is buried from site with only the access lid visible.
Compact tank – perfect for homes tight on space as it is fitted snug against the property.
Above-ground tank – which is the most common and needs to be installed on a concrete or prefabricated base.
Oil Fuel is similar to LPG that it is also delivered by road and the delivery truck needs to then connect to a storage tank to off load the oil. The oil will then be at the property, securely contained in the storage tank, waiting to be drawn upon as per the needs of the house.
Always the most important aspect when choosing is to choose the correct size that can store enough fuel for your household needs. Some fuel companies offer a smart meter that can detect when your fuel is running low and it automatically signals to the truck to make a delivery to you therefore you never run out of fuel and don’t need to worry about constantly ordering. There are 3 storage options to choose from;
Underground tank – only has a visible access panel and the rest of the tank is out of site buried in the garden.
Single Skin Tank – small tanks, no more than 2500 litres.
Bunded Tank - one of the securest ways to store fuel as it is a tank within a tank. They provide an extra safeguard in the event of a spillage or an overfill as the outer tank is designed to hold more than the inner tank.
