LPG Combi Boilers for Caravans
Propane or LPG combi boilers when installed in static caravans, are considered to be the “ideal boilers” for satisfying the central heating system (radiators or underfloor heating) and the domestic water heating.
They offer a more powerful and more efficient heating system for their size and will run at a lower cost to the static caravan owner or user.
They are in essence a lpg heating system boiler and static caravan water heater in one combined unit – so there’s no need for lpg heating boiler and a lpg water heaters as two separate appliances these days – a compact lpg combi boiler
LPG is a popular alternative to standard mains gas or oil-based heating systems as it’s safe and efficient and it’s easy to get connected today. LPG is an effective way for caravan owners to heat and provide hot water for their static caravan, as it’s clean, safe and smokeless.
liquid petroleum gas or LPG as we know it in the UK, is the most commonly used fuel for static caravan boilers for the UK and Ireland, as lots of caravan parks or sites are off the mains gas grid.
LPG boilers are a great alternative to electric heating systems. They are very cheap to run and easy to install. One type in particular, called a lpg or propane combi boiler, is very popular with caravan owners because its low cost of running and maintenance. Most lpg combination boilers are very compact, and can be installed in any static caravan. They can also be installed in a holiday home,chalets, holiday flats and apartments, so you do not have to live in a caravan to use a lpg combination boiler.
Best LPG Combi Boiler ?
When looking for a new lpg boiler or lpg combi boiler for a static caravan, there are a two main parts to a lpg combi boiler that we need to look at – the central heating side of the boiler for the static caravan and the lpg water heater side of the unit, as well as high efficiency, to ensure your gas bills are as low as possible for your static caravan.
You’re also looking for a compact lpg combi boiler, as static caravans aren’t always necessarily the roomiest of places, a lpg combi boiler that is small, yet powerful enough to do the water heater demands as well as the central heating system is a benefit.
The primary compact lpg combi boiler for static caravans is a condensing boiler, as these use the lpg / propane gas to the maximum efficiency, both for the heating and water heater side of the boiler.
Our most popular static caravan boiler is the 24kW model – which will supply heat up to 23.5 kW of heat output / power and will supply your caravan with domestic hot water at a flow rate of 11.5 litres / min at a temperature rise of 30 Degrees C – this is enough to run a bath in the winter period.
We always quote water flow rates at a temperature rise of 30 Degrees – these are winter time performance figures – because we want you to have a hot bath or shower (an average shower uses 7 or 8 litres / minute) when you need it the most.
The 12mm diameter internal s/s pipe where domestic hot water is produced, is inside the patented main heat exchanger (28mm diameter). Its total length is 8 meters and this ensures a large capacity for hot water production. The hot water flow is always available and always in condensing operation, resulting in lower energy costs and bills.
This class leading technology, with the large diameter, also reduces the chance of scale, something that older technology boiler that use a plate heat exchanger can suffer from. This is incredibly important in hard water areas- as our units don’t suffer from this.

External mounted propane combination option
We also supply an external combi boiler that is weatherproof, this external lpg combi boiler designated the R2K 24 – is a 24kW condensing model, is a little heavier at 37 KG’s – than our internal boiler – thus depending on the weight you caravan wall can take, you can either mount it directly or make a frame from the chassis of the static caravan to support the weight.
The benefit of having an external compact lpg boiler, that is fully weatherproofed, is that you eliminate (the gladly rare but often fatal) carbon monoxide poisoning risk.
Our boilers can be converted from an LPG (propane) to a natural gas boiler easily, should the need ever arise. We just supply plumbers with a simple conversion kit, and it’s a 5-minute job to do.

LPG Boiler Controls for Static Caravan
You can control your heating system via the inbuilt control panel or even remotely via an app on your phone, tablet or computer (internet access required), so you can control your boiler from anywhere.
Our standard lpg combi boiler, which is internally fitted within the caravan, requires a flue kit fitted. Our most common flue kit is a co-axial room sealed either horizontal or vertical, which means that all the air for the combustion process is taken from the exterior of the caravan (no windows need to be left open etc)
lpg water heaters
If you require just a water heater only, then you just require a lpg water heater, and we do a great range that are ideal high efficiency replacements for older Paloma, Vaillant,Worcester Bosch,Saunier Duval, Rinnai or Morco LPG water heaters.
But a few points to be aware here with regards to lpg water heaters –
There are lots of lpg water heaters on the UK market, that we’ll shall say are of “questionable quality “and also, we question some of the “performance claims”
Our top tips for selecting an lpg water heaters are –
1.Select a good quality manufacture for your lpg water heaters
Preferably from Europe, as by law spare parts have to be available for at least 10 years. Spares (including flue components spares) that aren’t available anymore, means a new water heater in most cases, with the additional expense of installing a new water heater.
2.Ask what country the LPG water heater is manufactured in?
Some are buying product in from the far east, and putting a badge on them – most of these are of very questionable quality to say the least – let alone the spares back up / availability.
3.Make sure your lpg water heaters, have suitable ” ErP” labels supplied
These are minimum requirements these days, to be on the UK and European market
The market for LPG water heaters really is really awash with some poor-quality water heaters, and the old adage of ” you get what you pay for ” or “buy cheap buy twice” really applies to the lpg water heaters market in the UK.
