LP Gas users urged not to wait till Christmas Eve to #getaheadforwinter

Householders and business owners should check their LP Gas supply to ensure they have a steady amount of heat over the Christmas period, advises UKLPG, the trade body for the Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gas industry.


In line with government advice, UKLPG is urging the 150,000 homes and businesses in the UK that currently use LP Gas for heat and hot water to #getaheadforwinter and place an order now, while suppliers have spare delivery capacity and weather conditions are favourable.

Rob Shuttleworth, Chief Executive of UKLPG, comments: "While many LP Gas suppliers have sophisticated customer data systems which will automatically guarantee customers' tanks are topped up for winter, those users who place their own manual orders should take immediate action to ensure they have a steady supply of heat over Christmas.

"By planning ahead for the festive season, home and business users can ensure they have enough heat for when the weather gets even colder, as well as minimising the impact of snow and ice disrupting deliveries. This applies to customers who use LP Gas cylinders as well, who should make sure they have enough spare capacity in the case of blocked roads preventing delivery.

"LP gas users should also ensure that all appliances have been checked and serviced by a Gas Safe registered installer within the past 12 months and that they have done as much as they can to insulate against cold weather."
