Oil Fired Boilers
What is an oil fired boiler?
An oil fired boiler system is a key alternative for the estimated 4 million houses in the UK that are not connected to the gas network. Oil fired combi boilers are suitable for those who live outside the city without access to gas and electricity supplies.
As an alternative to gas heating, oil fired combi boilers allow you to keep fuel stored near your property and top up the unit according to your need. Modern oil fired combi boilers can be very energy efficient (up to 95%) and there are many ‘A’ rated models on the market as well as other types of boilers.
How do oil fired boilers work?
An oil central heating system works in a similar way to a gas-powered system. But instead of using a gas boiler, it uses an oil fired boiler to heat water. This provides the central heating via radiators and hot water through the taps in your home.
Many homes that use an oil fired boiler choose to do so because they have no connection to the gas line, however, there are a lot of considerations you should make before going ahead with this type of system.
The main difference between the two systems is that you’ll need to have your oil supply delivered and stored in a tank.
What are the benefits of an oil fired boiler?
No need for a gas supply
If your property is not connected to a gas line, using an oil fired boiler can be one of the most cost-effective alternatives. It is, however, more expensive than using gas to heat your home, so if you have access to gas it may be worth considering that option also.
