The Self Build Challenge

Electrical engineer Ross Fanning was building a family home in Co. Wexford and before work commenced, he had already done a lot of his own research into the energy options available. Ross liked the clean efficiency and versatility of natural gas, but as the rural site was not on the natural gas pipeline, he needed an alternative. The Fannings wanted to power central heating, hot water, cooking, tumble dryer, and barbecue.

The Flogas Solution

Flogas’ competitive quote, excellent track record and the Flogas special offer of 1,200 litres of LPG free were enough for Ross to give the go-ahead.

The new build also included solar panels, which would provide only about 50% of hot water requirements, so LPG is an ideal complementary fuel to cope with the shortfall.

"The radiators heat up really quickly and within 30 minutes you have enough hot water for the kids' baths and showers. I am very pleased with all the work and looking forward to many years in our cosy new home," Ross said.

"LPG is a cleaner burning fuel and another bonus is the actual boiler itself. It's small, the size of a kitchen cupboard, and can be installed on the utility room wall. It's neat and tidy-looking and that's what also appealed to me."
