Avanti Gas Interview – Solution for B&B Owners
Tell us a bit about Avanti Gas?
AvantiGas is a major supplier of LPG and tailored energy solutions in the UK. We are part of an international organisation called UGI Corporation which is renowned for excellence in the production of fuels as well as global distribution. We have a network of 15 distribution centres around the country and two inland gas terminals. We offer a wide range of in-house expertise, including analysts, designers and engineers. We’re specialists in helping businesses find the best heat and fuel solutions for their needs. We’re also home to AvantiRenewables, specialists in renewable energy and biomass installations, providing businesses with flexible, tailored, green fuel choices.
How can your business improve that of a Luxury Guest House/B & B and what industry experience do you have?
Within the hospitality sector, energy costs may only be a small percentage of turnover, but reducing them can directly increase revenue without the need to increase sales. Money saved on energy goes straight to the bottom line which makes businesses more competitive – and with rising energy prices, this is more important than ever. For those thousands of Bed and Breakfasts, Pubs and Restaurants who are off the gas grid, reviewing your total heating costs can lead to significant savings in both costs and carbon emissions.
We’re offering all off-grid businesses a free no-commitment heat consultation which will help you understand how to reduce your fuel bills and become more efficient. On top of that we’ve launched our Sustainable Heating Fund, part of an initiative that’ll fully fund new heating systems. If your are eligible for funding, then you can benefit from; an LPG or biomass heat solution from one of the UK’s leading suppliers, sustainable, clean fuel that can lower your heating bills, no upfront capital and no maintenance costs to worry about and a new, efficient and complete heating system that’s tailored to your businesses needs.
We know that according to the Carbon Trust, heating can account for 60% of your total energy costs, and up to 40% of the energy used in a building. Also in a separate study, one in five customers would be more likely to stay in, or recommend a B&B if it uses renewable or low carbon energy sources.
