If you have a static caravan and need a new boiler there are a few options. In general, the best fuel to use is LPG as it is available in bottles and is cheaper than electricity and electric boilers. LPG boilers are also perfect for standard caravan boiler.

  1. 1. Viessmann Vitodens 050-W Combi

    This is Viessmann’s entry-level boiler. But, the 050-W is still one of the world’s best boilers. The warranty is two years shorter than the 100-W at 10-years, but it has the same heat exchanger and built-in WiFi for fault monitoring.

  2. 2. Viessmann Vitodens 200-W Combi

    The 200-W is the most efficient boiler available in the UK right now. It is 98% efficient and allows for granular control over heating and hot water. It is expensive, which is why it is at number 2.

  3. 3. Worcester 4000 Combi

    The Greenstar 4000 boiler is one of Worcester’s most popular models. It is a great boiler and comes with a 10-year warranty. It is efficient and reliable. Unfortunately, it has an aluminium heat exchanger rather than a stainless steel one, so we recommend careful consideration.

What is an LPG boiler?

An LPG boiler is a boiler that utilises Liquid Petroleum Gas as its fuel source; this is stored in an external tank ready to supply the boiler. Due to being 250 times denser as a liquid than as a gas, large quantities of LPG can be stored in a small space. This makes LPG perfect boilers for caravans.

LPG combi boilers are best suited to caravans as you don’t need a hot water cylinder. With an LPG boiler installation, you can have some of the lowest CO2 emissions available to off-grid properties – typically 20% less than the CO2 emissions of an oil boiler.

LPG boiler installation cost

The average annual cost for central heating and hot water using LPG in the UK is £1,265, based on a household consuming around 11,500 kWh a year. This will be significantly lower in a static caravan due to its size.

This figure is derived by using the average cost of LPG across the UK in 2020 and then multiplying this by the amount of kWh used on average by a medium gas-energy user, according to Ofgem.

LPG boilers are slightly more expensive to run than oil boilers. However, LPG boilers are cheaper to install. In addition, oil tanks aren’t transportable and take up a lot of room. LPG bottles are large but can be moved.

LPG is also a highly efficient fuel so you get a good return on every unit of energy. By changing to a new A-rated LPG boiler, you could save anywhere between £200 – £600 per year.

No. The best option is to start with 47 kg LPG bottles somewhere outside of your home.

Once you know your weekly or monthly usage, you can upgrade to larger 1-2,000 litre tanks, or not. To ensure you are aware of when you are running low on fuel, most LPG tanks are fitted with a device that warns you when it needs refilling.

During an LPG boiler installation, the LPG tank can either be installed above or below ground and typically starts as low as a 1m by 2m footprint.

  • LPG boilers are cheaper to buy and install than oil boilers
  • Widely available across the UK and easy to transport
  • LPG doesn’t contain sulphur, so burns cleaner than oil
  • A more environmentally friendly choice than oil, releasing only 81% of the carbon dioxide that oil does
  • LPG is a highly efficient fuel, providing a good return for your money
  • LPG boilers can be utilised with renewable energy sources
  • LPG is a more expensive fuel type than natural gas and oil
  • A storage tank will be required, so the installation space and costs for this will need to be considered
  • Poor weather or inaccessibility can affect your LPG delivery schedule.
  • The boiler, LPG tank and all appliances will need to be annually serviced

They are more expensive than natural gas or oil-fired boilers, as LPG is more expensive to buy. The boilers are generally cheaper to buy than oil-fired boilers however.

No, they’re not being phased out.
