LPG Boilers

What is a LPG boiler?

LPG boilers are a type of boiler that uses liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as its fuel source. Commonly used in rural areas where mains gas is not available, they can be a practical and efficient alternative to other fuel types, such as oil or electric.

Working in a very similar way to natural gas boilers, LPG boilers can be installed in homes without any issues. Padly is proud to provide a variety of LPG boilers to suit your homes heating needs, ready to be installed by our expert engineers at the click of a button - find out more about below.

Consider the following when choosing a new LPG boiler

Efficiency and performance:
Look for an LPG boiler with a high energy efficiency rating to ensure that you get the most out of your fuel. Consider the size of your property and your hot water demands to choose the appropriate boiler size for your needs.

Maintenance and servicing:
Regular maintenance is important to keep your boiler running efficiently and prevent breakdowns. Factor in the cost of regular servicing when considering the overall cost of the boiler.

Environmental impact:

LPG boilers can have a lower carbon footprint than other types of boilers, but they still produce some emissions. Consider the environmental impact of your chosen boiler and whether there are any eco-friendly options available.

LPG boilers require space for a storage tank, so you'll need to consider where you can place the tank on your property. You'll also need to ensure adequate space for the boiler itself, which should be installed in a dry, well-ventilated area.


LPG boilers require adequate ventilation to operate safely. It's important to ensure that the installation site meets the manufacturer's ventilation requirements to prevent the build-up of dangerous fumes.

Professional installation:
LPG boilers should only be installed by a qualified and registered engineer who is experienced with this type of boiler. A professional installation will help ensure that the boiler is fitted correctly and that all safety requirements are met.

Sustainable, smart, powerful

Benefits of an LPG boiler

Energy efficient

LPG Boilers typically have energy efficiency ratings of 90% or higher, which means that almost all of the fuel they use is converted into heat, making them highly efficient.

Low carbon footprint

LPG boilers have a lower carbon footprint compared to oil or coal-fired boilers, making them a more environmentally friendly choice.

Accessible alternative

An ideal solution for those who live in areas where mains gas is not available, they are very flexible and can be used for heating, hot water, and cooking.

Types of LPG Boilers

There are two main types of LPG boilers: combi boilers and regular boilers.

Combi boilers: Combi (short for combination) boilers are the most popular type of LPG boiler. They provide both heating and hot water on demand, without the need for a separate water tank. Combi boilers are typically more compact and easier to install than regular boilers, making them a popular choice for smaller homes or flats.

Regular boilers: Regular boilers, also known as conventional or traditional boilers, require a separate hot water tank and cold-water storage tank. They are typically larger and more complex than combi boilers and are generally best suited to larger homes with more than one bathroom. Regular boilers are often a good choice if you have an older central heating system that requires upgrading.

It's worth noting that LPG boilers can also be categorized by their flue type. There are two main types of flues: balanced flue and open flue. A balanced flue boiler is a sealed unit that draws air in from outside for combustion, while an open flue boiler uses air from the room where it is installed. Balanced flue boilers are generally considered to be safer and more efficient than open flue boilers, as they eliminate the risk of harmful gases escaping into the home.

What are the benefits of installing an LPG boiler in my home?

LPG boilers have several benefits that make them an appealing option for many homeowners. They are known for their efficiency, converting a high percentage of their fuel into heat, which can help reduce energy bills. LPG boilers also heat water very quickly, providing hot water on demand. Moreover, LPG is a cleaner fuel compared to oil, producing less CO2 and soot, which can contribute to a healthier home environment and lower maintenance costs.

How does the cost of running an LPG boiler compare to other types of boilers?

The running cost of an LPG boiler can vary depending on factors like the size of your home, the efficiency of your boiler, and the current cost of LPG fuel. While LPG is typically more expensive than natural gas, it's often cheaper than oil or electricity, making LPG boilers a cost-effective option for homes not connected to the gas grid.

Can an LPG boiler save me money on my energy bills?

Yes, an LPG boiler can potentially save you money on your energy bills. Modern LPG boilers are highly efficient, meaning less energy is wasted and more is converted into usable heat. This can lead to lower energy consumption and therefore, lower energy bills. However, it's worth noting that the cost-effectiveness of an LPG boiler can depend on factors like the price of LPG and the efficiency of your specific boiler model.

How often should an LPG boiler be serviced and why is it important?

It's recommended to have your LPG boiler serviced annually. Regular servicing ensures your boiler is running safely and efficiently. During a service, an engineer will inspect the boiler and its components, carry out necessary cleaning, and check for any potential issues. This not only ensures optimal performance but can also extend the lifespan of the boiler, saving you money on potential repairs or premature replacement.
