Oil Fired Boilers

Standard (or conventional) boilers heat your radiators and hot water when activated by a controller or programmer. The hot water is then stored in a cylinder until it is needed. In some rural areas of the UK, particularly where gas grids are out of reach, oil fired boilers are the perfect solution for some households. Today modern boilers can also save up to 90% energy, another reason oil fired boilers are becoming increasing popular.

Central heating and hot water using standard oil fired boilers

This type of system is most suitable for families or large houses where hot water is needed on demand and in significant quantities for heating, baths, washing machines, dishwashers and other household appliances.

Combination (Combi) Oil Boilers

Oil fired boiler systemCombination boilers (Combi) provide hot water on demand, heated as required with no water storage. They heat your radiators when activated by a controller or programmer similar to standard (or conventional) boiler systems. Combi boilers dispense with the need for the hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard, the large cold water cistern (tank) plus small header cistern (tank) in the loft which are otherwise needed in conventional vented heating systems.

All the major components are housed in one unit which makes them very convenient to the installer and saving space for the householder.

Combi boiler systems are generally suitable for smaller households, flats and bungalows where with a smaller number of users with modest heating and hot water demands. Although the latest combination boilers can also suit larger households, in some instances it is down to personal preference.

Condensing Oil Fired Boilers

These types of boilers are available as high efficiency, energy saving condensing boilers. Condensing boilers are designed to recycle heat with an extra heat exchanger so that the hot exhaust gases are used to pre-heat the water in the boiler system, therefore reducing energy consumption and bills.

Condensing boilers cost a little more but the energy savings will repay that extra initial investment in 2 to 4 years of normal use.
