LPG benefits to be showcased at homebuilders’ event
Energy-savvy homebuilders in the Midlands will be able to explore the benefits of using LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) in their home projects as national supplier, AvantiGas, shares its expertise at the Homebuilding and Renovating Show at Birmingham NEC from 26 to 29 March.
With so many homeowners now opting for the joys of rural living, millions of households across the UK are also facing the challenges of their dream homes being without any connection to mainline gas.
AvantiGas supplies LPG across the UK via 15 distribution centres, including a supply point in Birmingham. It gives customers the advantages of cleaner burning, efficient fuel for properties not connected to mains gas, allowing them to still enjoy the pleasures of a warm home and hot water.
Visitors to the AvantiGas stand (number F140) will be able to explore the environmental benefits of choosing LPG while talking to experts about their specific energy needs and how an LPG tank could fit in with their building or renovation plans. AvantiGas will also give visitors advice on the practicalities of managing their LPG supply and which available options would best suit them.
Homebuilders visiting the stand will also be able to take advantage of an exclusive, money-saving, show offer available only to attendees at the NEC. More about the deal will only be revealed when the show opens.
Roy Birkenshaw, domestic sales representative for AvantiGas, said “Some of this region’s most stunning properties are in its most rural locations and while they will have unrivalled views and tranquillity, they may also have to deal with the difficulty of sourcing their own gas supply.
“However, using LPG as an alternative to mainline gas can have many up-sides. It is much kinder to the environment than other fossil fuels such as oil or coal, making it a green and clean option with no sooty residue.
“It is also an easy process to switch or set up supply. With AvantiGas’ team of experts and project managers it can be a hassle-free job which can be completed without disruption, leaving you free to concentrate on other aspects of your home improvement project.”
Of the two million homes across the UK currently not connected to mains gas, around 150,000 use LPG as an alternative energy source to fuel their homes.
As well as fewer air pollutants, LPG also produces less carbon dioxide than most other fossil fuels which helps to reduce CO2 emissions of a typical house by 1.5 tonnes (about 25 per cent) per year1.
LPG has a higher efficiency (in some cases up to five times) than other fossil fuels and this is due to its high calorific value making it an ideal choice for the UK’s rural homes.
