Install Natural Gas Appliances Without Changing Your Boiler!


One of the many benefits our customers love is ‘cooking on gas!’  However, did you know that you don’t have to convert your whole system to natural gas to install a natural gas appliance. That means you can do away with unsightly LPG bottles yet still take advantage of a natural gas cooker.

That’s right cookers, hobs, and even gas fires can all be installed without switching your boiler. firmus energy will even install a PAYG meter absolutely free of charge too if you’d like one.

Cooking on natural gas makes light work for even the most novice chefs. Whether you love to cook or are a self-confessed beginner, many customers have found themselves kitchen whizzes, after having had gas installed, as the saying goes “life’s much easier now you’re cooking on gas” 

The simplicity of cooking on natural gas comes down to the precision and consistency the super controllable flame offers. You can cook food with greater ease and precision than any other fuel source. With natural gas, you can control the cooking temperature immediately, unlike electric cookers which take time to heat up and cool down. Natural gas is also a cleaner fuel choice too!

Gas fires also make life much easier. Buying different types of coal, sticks and logs and lugging them from the coal depot in your car, and then into the house, becomes a thing of the past. With the advancement of natural gas fires which fit with today’s most modern interiors, and so lifelike, they are one of the best choices.

The convenience of natural gas fires also really comes to the fore for older people too who might not want to lift heavy log baskets or coal scuttles.

If you are interested in switching your appliance to natural gas, then for a limited time, firmus energy will install a PAYG meter free of charge giving you full control over the gas you use plus you could get £100 cashback too.

To date, over 111,000 customers use natural gas supplied by firmus energy and are enjoying the benefits that natural gas brings. So, what are you waiting for? Find out how you can make the switch by heading over to or calling the team on 0330 024 9000.
