There are an estimated 3.9 million homes out of reach of mains gas in the UK, according to government figures, with the majority of these properties using oil to fuel their heating and hot water systems.

Calor has produced a video to explain the main incentives for switching to LPG from alternatives such as oil, solid fuel and electricity.
