For people who live off grid LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is an excellent alternative. It is available in bulk tank form or in bottles. Your choice will depend upon your circumstances and the amount of gas supply required.
As with Natural Gas there are a number of providers and it does pay to shop around to get the best deal from a supplier with a term contract often providing a cost benefit.
LPG boilers are available in much the same configuration as their natural gas cousins. Although not all manufacturers provide LPG boilers in every kilowatt rating that they do with Natural Gas.
LPG burns faster than Natural Gas and therefore the boilers have to be altered to cope with this. Some are factory built but many are converted by your engineer upon installation. A specific label is also placed on an LPG boiler to warn all future users and engineers.
More environmentally friendly forms of Liquefied Petroleum Gas are now being made available.
