How natural gas reaches your gas fire

 June 23, 2010    11 Comments  Advice & Information, Gas Stoves & Fires

With the ease & convenience of gas, it’s usual to assume that your property is supplied by the mains gas network. Sometimes though, this isn’t the case with some rural (and not so rural) areas missing out.

Before you purchase your gas fire or stove, you should consider your home’s suitability for gas. If it isn’t linked up to a supply of natural gas, don’t be alarmed, many stoves and fires have models that can operate with LPG (liquid gas or propane). LPG is available in many areas of the UK, but check your supplier choices and also consider your delivery and storage options.

Efficiency rates should not vary between natural gas and LPG, but it is worth ensuring that your chosen fire or stove is compatible with your needs by speaking to your local retailer.
