    LPG Installers

    First, what is LPG?

    LPG otherwise known as Liquefied petroleum gas, such as propane or butane, it is a flammable fuel (gas) 

    Used for many types of gas heating appliances, cooking equipment and much, much more.

    You’re likely to come across LPG in mobile homes, boats, rural homes, BBQ’s, and patio heaters.

    LPG installers are registered gas engineers who work on both LPG and natural gas appliances.

    A local LPG boiler engineer is a Local gas engineer registered to work on LPG boilers.

    LPG engineers are not the same as regular gas engineers.

    Let me explain.

    Anybody who works on gas must, by law, be registered with gas safe.

    All gas appliances are broken down into groups, boilers, fire, cookers and so on.

    If a gas engineer wants to work on boilers, he has to take an exam for boilers, the same goes for all the other groups.

    To be registered to work on LPG appliances, the engineer has to first sit the exams for natural gas appliances. He then has to sit the LPG exam.

    These gas qualifications have to be renewed every five years.

    If the engineer does not resit these exams after five years, he can no longer work on any gas appliances.

    The local LPG boiler engineer is also qualified to work on natural gas boilers.

    When searching for LPG installers you may find it a little harder than if you were searching for a natural gas installer.

    LPG installers are more common in rural areas than they are in towns.
