Among the benefits of LPG over oil for commercial installations is Calor’s guarantee of a lower price.

Calor Gas offers a price promise for specifiers and installers that its liquefied petroleum gas will be cheaper than the current oil price for commercial clients. Research indicates that most specifiers of off-grid fuel solutions believe that oil is much cheaper than LPG and, as a result, there is limited awareness of the many benefits of LPG.

This price guarantee is aimed at M&E engineers, heating and energy consultants, architects and installers specifying off-grid solutions for commercial installations.

One benefit of LPG is that it is very difficult to steal from an LPG tank, unlike heating oil — for which theft is increasing. The reputational and environmental damage of an oil spillage are also avoided.

Keith Higginson, commercial marketing manager from Calor, ‘LPG is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel for CO2, sulphur oxides, nitrous oxides and particulates — resulting in healthier air quality and is a logical low-carbon backup fuel to renewable technologies.’
