Ofgem announce price cap

Cost effective green LPG Gas

There was good news for consumers recently when Ofgem announced an energy price cap for customers on direct debit deals, saving households £75 per year on average. The energy watchdog has instructed a cap of £1,136 per year for duel fuel customers, and have stated that the cap will take place by the end of the year.

The regulator was granted powers by the government back in July in a bid to help consumers struggling with the increasing cost of heating and electricity, giving those who don’t engage in the market fairer prices. As a result of this, Ofgem have said suppliers will now need to cut their prices to the cap or below to give customers on poor value default tariffs better deals, and protection for those who don’t switch.

Chief Executive, Dermot Nolan said:

“Once the price cap is in place, all households in Great Britain covered by the cap will be protected from being overcharged for their energy. Consumers can have confidence that falls in energy costs will be passed on to them and if costs increase, Ofgem will ensure that any rise will be due to genuine increases in energy costs rather than supplier profiteering”.

At CamGas, we already take this approach with our customers and have done so for many years. As a family run business our core value is to protect and maintain our loyal customers by conducting regular reviews of our prices and pass on price reductions when possible. We like to believe we offer fair pricing to all of our customers based on their usage, not based upon how well or often someone negotiate.

Gas Deficit Declared in the wake of Storm Emma and the Beast from the East.

Beast from East LPG Gas

In the recent weather attack from ‘Beast from the East’ combined with Storm Emma, Britain faced life-threatening snowstorm conditions, some of the worst we have witnessed in decades. Numerous parts of the UK were issued with red weather warnings - the highest alert given by the Met Office.

As the temperatures plummeted to -6 in some regions, the National Grid declared there would be a potential mains gas deficit due to the hostile weather. Britain was at great risk of not having enough gas to meet the high demand required, causing chaos and panic.

For rural communities living beyond the mains gas supply, they face additional problems whereby supplies of alternative fuels such as LPGas are so reliant on road conditions.

As the majority of CamGas customers reside in rural locations and are fully reliant on LPGas for their heating and cooking, CamGas are fully geared up to ensure their customers don’t run out of LPGas. Whether its cylinders or bulk tank supply a combination of scheduled deliveries and telemetry monitoring ensured CamGas were able to keep all their customers fed & warm, regardless of the ‘Beast from the East’.

CamGas are proud of their unrivalled reputation for prompt cylinder delivery and unequalled bulk tank service and strive to continue being the best LPG supplier in North and Mid Wales and Cheshire.

Pat Ardis, Managing Director explains “I’m immensely proud of the CamGas team’s performance, to overcome all the challenges to ensure our customers didn’t get cold. Apart from the odd impassable location, we were able to fulfil our customers’ requirements. Good planning and infrastructure investment ensured adequate supplies of LPG at all times. It was certainly a true test of the company’s ability to react positively whatever the conditions. The full team in the office, plant personnel and drivers, all combine to maintain the unique LPG service CamGas provides”.

Top 10 Heating Tips for Winter.

Winter LPG Gas

The unpredictable British weather could potentially be your worst nightmare this winter as it plays havoc with the temperature inside our homes. At CamGas, we have come up with 10 heating tips to make sure your home stays warm this winter.


1. Program your heating to suit the weather

The British weather is known for being unpredictable. Manage your heating so you can accommodate for both the cold and warm days by utilising your heating controls. This can be done manually or with a smart meter.

2. Turn your heating down by 1°c

Turning your heating down by this small amount won’t cause you to feel a difference in the temperature. However, you will be pleasantly surprised to see the difference in your bills.

3. Individual radiator thermostats

Ensure you set the settings on each radiator to suit each room. For example, unused bedrooms switch to frost stat or 1.

4. Hot water temperature

Adding lots of cold to hot water, to cool it down, is a costly waste. Most modern boilers have a separate hot water temperature setting, consider reducing it.

5. Do not open windows when the heating is on

It is important that you keep all windows shut when the heating is on. Having windows open will do nothing to help reduce your heating bills and will waste energy.

6. Use your curtains

Keep your curtains open in the day to let in that free heat from the sun. When it gets dark, shut your curtains so that they can act as an extra insulator to keep the warmth in your rooms.

7. Draught-proof your house

Be sure to patch up any draughts you find in your home. Filling in gaps and cracks around doors and windows can make massive savings on heating bills. We advise buying insulating tape as this can be a great investment.

8. Un-crowd your radiators

Make sure there are no objects blocking the airflow around your radiator. These objects can absorb heat causing the room not to heat up efficiently. Because of this you may find yourself turning up your thermostat. To prevent this, we recommend that you rearrange your room to allow maximum airflow.

9. Wear a warm jumper!

This is a simple fix. Wearing more clothing can make you feel instantly warmer. By doing this, you are more likely to not turn your heating up, which means more saving on your bills.

10. Consider a new boiler

Should your central heating boiler be older than 10 years, you may wish to consider replacing it with a modern condensing combination boiler, with efficiency levels of up to 93%.

Prepare For The Winter Months With CamGas

Winter LPG Gas

There is no denying that slowly but surely the nights are drawing darker little by little each week, indicating that winter is just around the corner. During this time, we will notice the temperature descend and the cold weather creep in, increasing the demand for LPG.

Be prepared and check your LPG cylinders on a regular basis, to ensure your household has enough fuel for heating and cooking during the unpredictable winter months.

UKLPG, the trade association of the Liquid Petroleum (LP) Gas Industry, urges LPG users to stock up promptly, especially those in rural areas.

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.”

CamGas customers need not worry, we are committed to providing an outstanding service to our customers, all year round as we provide automatic scheduled deliveries to our bulk tanks, based on seasonal demand. For 4 cylinder bank customers with our telemetry system lets CamGas know the minute your first two cylinders are empty giving us plenty of time to plan your delivery. We also have 4-wheel drive backup vehicles in case of emergencies. We can deliver quick, easy and on time keeping our customers cosy through winter.

CamGas Go High Tech To Improve Customer Service

Following successful trials throughout 2014, CamGas are now able to offer four cylinder bank consumers an automated, trouble free delivery service, without the need for you to ring, order or even look at the cylinders. This system is ideal for elderly, disabled and vulnerable customers or those that live in remote and rural areas who are unable to check their cylinders, holiday homes where you're not always present or those who simply want to forget about their fuel supply as they would with a traditional mains gas system.

A discreet telemetry unit is connected to a changeover valve that sends a message back to CamGas when your first two cylinders run out and we will then arrange a new gas delivery. In the meantime the valve automatically changes over to the other two cylinders to provide a continuous supply meaning that you never need to worry about running out of gas. In short, you don't have to do anything, CamGas does it all.

Our telemetry system supports our ongoing commitment to ensuring we deliver on time, every time to keep our customers warm and happy all year round.

If you would like to discover more about our telemetry system please call and speak to one of the CamGas team on 01244 520551, who will be happy to help.
