Whether you’re heating your home or are the sort of person who is happy to go caravanning even when temperatures take a bit of a dip, the last thing you’ll need is to run out of Calor gas at an inopportune moment. The following tips could help you to reduce your gas consumption over the autumn and winter periods, allowing you to conserve fuel for when you need it the most:
Have your boiler serviced regularly
If your home or caravan has a boiler which runs on bottled LPG gas, you’ll want to ensure that it’s operating at maximum efficiency. Boilers are at their best when they’re in good condition, so it makes sense to have your appliance given the once-over by a Gas Safe registered engineer at least every twelve months.
Keep heat inside
By making some relatively small changes, you could end up drastically lowering your gas consumption. Simple things like using draft excluders at the bottom of your doors and closing curtains in the evening help to keep heat locked in. This means you’ll expend less Calor gas over the course of an evening.
Have showers instead of baths
If you’re caravanning, you probably won’t have the luxury of having a bath – but if you’re a homeowner, you should be aware that showers only use 1/3rd of the energy required to fill a hot bath. This means you could save up to £50 off your annual Calor gas bill!
Always keep a spare bottle of Calor gas handy
The last thing you need is to run out of fuel on a cold winter’s night. By keeping spare Calor gas bottles topped up, you won’t have to worry about being caught short. However, if you do run out, the good news is that London Gases are a mere phone call away and have the most affordable gas bottles London has to offer.
