LetsGo TNT are one of the leading specialists for LPG Boilers Fife.

LPG Boilers are extremely common in Fife, particularly in rural areas where homes cannot have the mains gas network running to their homes.

There are a few options to consider, such as Oil, LPG or Electric, however, in this blog, we will focus on the pros and cons of installing and servicing an LPG Boiler.


The Pros of LPG Boilers

  • The cost of the LPG boiler and the installation price will be lower than oiler boilers and only marginally more than a mains
  • LPG is a much cleaner fuel than oil and produces less carbon, so if you’re concerned about your carbon footprint, it’s a more attractive option.
  • New condensing LPG boilers are energy efficient and can achieve over 93%. This means that for every pound spent on fuel, at least 93p of it will be used to warm your home and water.
  • LPG boilers tend to be smaller than Oil boilers which can be a little bulky and much louder. So if space is an issue, then LPG Boilers are the way to go.


The Cons of LPG Boilers

  • LPG Boilers require an LPG storage tank that must be located externally and, therefore, must be considered. However, many customers choose to locate them in the garden and then discretely cover them with some hedging or fencing.
  • Most suppliers of LPG will own the storage tanks and charge a daily rate for storage. Although this is not expensive, it needs to be taken into consideration as this can lock you into the supplier
  • Like many fuel sources, the price of LPG has recently risen and is more expensive than mains gas.
  • An LPG storage tank needs to be filled occasionally, and you need to keep an eye on the gauge to let the supplier know when it needs to be topped up.


What brands are available in LPG boilers 

 Although some manufacturers do not offer LPG boilers, there is still a good variety to choose from.

Viessmann, Baxi, Vaillant, and Worcester to name a few, are some of the top brands that offer LPG models in combi boilers, system boilers as well as regular boilers.

LPG boilers tend to be a bit more expensive than natural gas boilers and do not offer the same number of models with the same heat outputs as natural gas boilers.

Again, as with gas boilers, manufacturers offer a variety of warranties to suit your budget. These typically range from 2 to 12 years, depending on the choice of brands, models and what filter is installed.


Guide for LPG Boilers Servicing

It is of the utmost importance that the LPG boiler servicing is carried out annually, whether your LPG boiler is still under warranty or not.

Landlords must have their boilers serviced at least every 12 months if they have tenants in their properties. Below is a list of the most important things that need to be considered when a gas engineer comes to service your boiler.


One of the main reasons for having your LPG boiler serviced regularly is for peace of mind. If the boiler is not maintained correctly, this is when there is the potential that things can go wrong. Ensure that you keep on top of your annual boiler servicing and put it on the calendar to call your local gas engineer.

Catching Issues Early

During your annual boiler service, your local LPG engineer may spot an issue with your boiler that can be easily repaired on site.

This could be a saving on any potentially expensive future repairs. The longer a problem goes unresolved, the more costly it can become to repair or, in the worst-case scenario, it has to be replaced.


LPG engineers carry out checks and ensure that your boiler is working efficiently. The more efficient your boiler is, the less excess energy it uses, which ultimately decreases your annual energy bills.


If you’re unsure when your service is due, check the installation manual when the boiler was commissioned, this would be a good place to start.

If there is no manual available, call the manufacturer and give them your postcode, boiler make and model, and they should be able to identify when the boiler was installed.

Once you know when you need to have your boiler serviced, search for an LPG gas-safe engineer near you either by doing a Google search or calling Gas Safe, and they can tell you which LPG-registered engineers are in your area.


What gets done during an LPG Boiler service

 During your annual service of your LPG Boiler, you should expect the following to happen:

  • Visual inspection of the boiler.
  • Clean components as necessary.
  • Check that the safety devices are operating correctly.
  • Check the correct operation of the boiler.
  • Check that the pressure is correct.
  • Check the effectiveness of the flue.
  • Check the electrical wiring connections.
  • Check that the heating controls are operating correctly.
  • Check that the boiler has sufficient ventilation.
  • Check that the radiators are heating up properly.
  • Check the boiler seals.
  • If required, get a copy of the service report or gas safety inspection.
