Gas Bottles

Post by Mushersmate » 3 years ago

Hi, as new owners this season we were just wondering if anyone has an approximation of how many gas bottles they use per season. We are a little worried as we had our caravan handed over on 21 March and are sub-letting through Haven at the moment and we have already had an invoice for a gas bottle. This means that 1 bottle has lasted just under 4 weeks. We obviously realize usage will be less (hopefully) in Summer, but we are surprised that a new bottle is needed already.

Hi.

Are you central heating of just a gas fire.?

One bottle for 4 weeks sounds about right compared for this time of year and compared with some of the other posts, The summer should be a lot less. We reckon on 2 and half bottles a season.

It might be useful reading the other subject posts ie "a bottle og gas for 9 days"

Regards

Bonjgb

Do you sub-let bonjgb? Do you have central heating? We have used 6 this last year, we only have a gas fire and we do sub-let.

Hi. We originally sub-let with no central heating and used about 2 and a half bottles per year. This sub-let included Easter (coolish).

This year we have central heating and are monitoring.

My concern is that guests may abuse the central heating in that its there let's use it.

See the other posted subjects.

if you rent privately then you can monitor the usage. However if you rent through haven then they will change then whenever the feel. Last year I used six at £56 each through haven.

We don't let out and have central heating, we usually use about 5 a season, 2 March-May, 1 May-September and 2 September-November.

Ive just has a typed, receipt sent throught the post for my last bottle - seems at odds with the paperless system bourne is trying to introduce? Im more than happy seeing this deducted via my online account. Even if they need a paper trail themselves, its something I dont really need. Sub letting and tax reclaim? Maybe a tickbox if people dont need a receipt wouold be an idea? Just a thought.

I think 3-4 is reasonable, it usually depends on whether we have a decent summer or not lol
