Make the clever choice Switch from solid fuel to Calor gas

Switching from solid fuel

If you live in a rural area without mains gas supply, you may well be using coal, wood or pellets for your heating.
Now might be a good time to consider switching to gas, which offers a great alternative to coal and other solid fuels, together with all the convenience and reliability of mains gas – plus a whole lot more.

What's more, our free above-ground tank installation offer includes everything from the tank and base installation to connection to your house so you don't need to worry about anything. In addition, the Calor Compact is also free to install when switching from another fuel source. Alternatively, if an underground tank is preferred, we can install it for just £1500.

Great benefits of LPG

Save money

Benefit from competitive gas prices with fixed price tariffs as well as no day to day maintenance and less mess.

There are also no upfront tank purchase costs involved when you switch, helping you save further.

Easy living

From easy payment plans, managing your account online and automatic gas refills, here at Calor we make it easy for you to enjoy rural living.

Cooking on gas

Gas provides an instant and controllable flame and with our range of LPG cookers to choose from, it's just like cooking on mains gas.

Clever & reliable

Our clever automatic top-up technology tells us when you're running low so there's no worry about ordering gas.

Our national network of delivery depots and the largest LPG tanker fleet, means we'll always be able to deliver.

Solution to suit you

You can choose to hide your tank underground, alternatively an above ground tank or our Calor Compact may be the right solution for your home.
