Rural householders and business owners on the Isle of Wight should check their supplies of LP Gas before the cold weather sets in – hat’s the call from UKLPG, the trade body for the Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gas industry.
Following a mild autumn, the sharp fall in temperatures this week has taken many people by surprise. For the 150,000 homes and businesses in the UK that currently use LP Gas for heat and hot water, it is important to maintain a full tank to prevent any disruptions over the winter months.
Rob Shuttleworth, CEO of UKLPG, comments:
“While many LP Gas suppliers have sophisticated customer data systems which will automatically guarantee customers’ tanks are topped up for winter, those users who place their own manual orders should safeguard their supply for the cold conditions.
“By planning ahead, home and business users can ensure they have enough heat for when the weather gets even colder, as well as minimising the impact of snow and ice disrupting deliveries. This applies to customers who use LP Gas cylinders as well, who should make sure they have enough spare capacity in the case of blocked roads preventing delivery.”
