LPG is an alternative for anyone who is not connected to the grid but who wants the benefits of gas heating in terms of flexibility and comfort.
When you can not equip yourself with gas, you have to get closer to a distributor who will install one of his tanks (he will remain the owner) and deliver his fuel. On your side, you will have to carry out the interior installations and have them checked before any connection (power supply, evacuation and security systems).

Propane gas is a flammable and dangerous product, the greatest vigilance is required.
The tank must therefore be installed according to precise rules. Before using a distributor, make sure that the configuration of your garden allows this type of installation. Distance D shall be 3 m for tanks less than 3.5 tonnes and 1.50 m for underground tanks.
