The finer detail

I have a question

We’ll own and maintain your tank – meaning there'll be one less thing for you to worry about.

Because nobody ever had too much time.

Our Auto-ordering technology works by fitting a content gauge to the top of your tank, which continuously monitors your usage.*** When you're running low, the transmitter sends a GSM signal to our central computers, alongside your current gas level and usage, which allows us to schedule your next delivery when you need one.

There's no charge for Auto-ordering and it’s available on our above ground and underground tanks.

Once you've accepted your quote and opted for LPG heating, we'll arrange for an energy expert to visit your home and conduct a site survey. They’ll help you to identify the perfect solution for you and they'll work with you to find a convenient time for install.

While our timescales can vary, we'll always do our best to install your gas as quickly as possible. And where needed, we can provide temporary gas solutions for your home energy.

Whilst we'll take care of everything outside, you'll need a trusty LPG Installer to fit your new boiler and hook everything up inside. You can find one through our quote tool, or by using our handy LPG Boiler Installer tool.****

We've got a storage solution to match every home and family, so that you can enjoy every inch of your home.** You can read about them here. But don't worry - our energy experts will advise and assist every step of the way.
