Do you live in a property that doesn’t have mains gas supply? If so, the two best fuel options for a heating and hot water system are oil and LPG. Of these two, oil is safer and less expensive to run.
The Right Place For an Oil Boiler
As your probably aware oil boilers require a tank to feed the boiler with fuel, if this is an option for you, you will need to ensure that there is adequate room for the tank & its positioning follows regulations. There are tight regulations on how these are installed to reduce the risk of leaks and possible effects on the environment.
How Efficient are Oil-Fired Boilers
Modern oil-fired boilers can be very energy-efficient and manufacturers claim net seasonal operating efficiencies of up to 97%. As with gas boilers, the highest rated boilers will offer the greatest efficiency, and there are many ‘A’ rated models on the market.
How Much Does A Oil Boiler Cost to Run
When it comes to pricing oil needs to be delivered to fill the tank, most companies require you to pay for your first delivery upfront then a pre-paid account is set up. With a standard gas set up you will pay for the supply you have used, depending on your tariff, but with an Oil supply you will pay in advance.
Oil prices are low at the moment but they are variable so you will have to take into account the chance these prices may go up.
