Liquified Petroleum Gas (known as LPG) is an alternative fuel commonly used for heating appliances and cooking equipment where natural gas is not available, for example, in rural areas not serviced by the gas grid. If you are a gas installer who counts countryside clients in its customer-base, then upskilling into this area could be a smart business move.
LPG is stored in permanent tanks or pressurised bottles of various sizes, making it the ideal fuel for a range of portable applications including boats, yachts and leisure accommodation vehicles, such as caravans and motor homes.
LPG is also used for park homes and static caravan fleets on holiday parks.
The main LPG gases are Propane and Butane, or a mixture of the two.
