What are oil boilers?
Oil powered central heating system use an oil-fired boiler to supply hot water and heat. Oil supplies are stored in a specialist tank, external to your property, and any hot water is stored in a hot water tank ready to supply on demand.
For many years, oil boilers have been a popular alternative for households which don't have access to the gas network. However, the costs incurred to install, maintain and supply an oil boiler are often high.
Replacing existing oil boiler systems with a newer, more efficient model could reduce the amount spent on fuel bills and maintenance. The energy performance rating of your property will also increase. The average annual cost of heating a UK home through an oil powered system is approximately £1000. In comparison, air source heat pumps and gas boilers cost between £700 and £900.
