Calor installers can now recommend BioLPG to their off-grid customers as a clean option for heating homes that do not have access to mains gas.
The government has made it clear that it wants to improve air quality, and forthcoming legislation will ensure only the cleanest wood-burning stoves can be sold by 2022. This will reduce the amount of particular matter that is released into the atmosphere by home heating.
Calor says this will have an impact on rural homeowners who rely on solid fuel for heating – and installers should be recommending alternative options to future-proof their heating system. Calor suggests BioLPG as a clean option for heating homes with no access to mains gas.
National specifier manager Karl Bateman says: “The Clean Air Strategy and Clean Growth Strategy have brought attention to heating fuel choices. Installers play a key role in advising rural homeowners on the fuel options available to future-proof their heating system, such as new BioLPG.
“BioLPG is made from renewable materials and will reduce a homeowner’s carbon footprint for home heating. It is chemically identical to standard LPG but is created from a mix of renewable and waste materials.
“It’s classed as a drop-in fuel, so it’s compatible with current LPG heating systems and appliances, and the system requires no additional upgrades or adjustment.
