Get Ready for Winter
Cold weather will increase the demand for LP Gas - an energy that provides householders with all the advantages of mains gas when not connected to the gas network. It currently provides heat and hotwater to over 150,000 homes and businesses in the UK. LP Gas is usually delivered via road tanker to an indivudual bulk tank. The increases in demand can often be at a time when bad weather can materialise quickly and disrupt deliveries.Going into winter with a full tank of LP Gas ensures that householders and business can access the fuel and heat they need, regardless of any external weather conditions and issues with supply.
Many LP Gas suppliers have sophisticated customer data systems which will automatically top up their customers’ tanks to ensure their gas is sufficient going into winter, and throughout the year. For those customers who order when they need gas then we urge those customers to plan ahead and order early to ensure the have enough to heat their home for when the weather turns colder but also in case of snow and ice which can result in blocked roads and limit the ability for deliveries to be made.
For customers who opt to use LP Gas from the convenience of a cylinder we would also encourage you to ensure that you order in good time with your supplier and would recommend that an extra cylinder of gas is purchased.
The LP Gas industry works closely with Government, devolved administrations, and local authorities in winter to try and ensure essential deliveries get through. Both the UK and Scottish governments publish advice on winter preparedness and we would recommend all customers living in rural areas where the effects of bad weather are most accute should familiarise themselves with the advice provided.
