London Installers of Gas Central Heating Systems and Oil Boilers

An oil fired boiler
Oil Boilers are available in a wide variety of central heating outputs and from a wide range of manufacturers. Combi, System and external boilers are available.  An oil central heating system works in a similar way to its gas-powered counterpart, using an oil-fired boiler to heat water, which provides the central heating via radiators and hot water through the taps in your home.

The main difference between the two is that you'll need to have your oil supply delivered and stored in a tank.

A good oil-fired central heating system will contain the same controls as a modern gas-fired system.

Operating efficiencies achieved up to 97% .

OIL BOILER INFORMATION

Only condensing oil-fired boilers can meet the efficiency requirements imposed by the government since 2007.  Typically, a new condensing oil-fired boiler will have an efficiency of around 92% compared with 85% for a new non-condensing boiler and 60% to 70% for older systems. Requirements

  • A room thermostat, ideally located in a living room
  • Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) on all but one of the radiators
  • An electronic 7 day timer with separately programmable hot water and room heating
  • A cylinder thermostat on the hot water tank
  • The boiler and thermostats wired to prevent short-cycling when there is no demand for either hot water or room heating


  • ADVANTAGES

    Modern oil-fired boilers can be highly 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 now over 90 "A" rated models on the market.  Since April 2007 it has been mandatory to install condensing oil boilers which comply with Building Regulations.

    Ideal installations are for communal properties or blocks of flats where energy savings can be considerable.

    Plumber fixing gas boiler
    Oil-fired combination boilers are also available, providing hot water on demand without the need for a hot water tank. However, it is fair to say that they are a bit slower to provide hot water than some gas combi boilers, and that they are not always recommended except for smaller households

    A modern high-efficiency oil system can provide an environmentally acceptable alternative, especially for homes that are not connected to the gas main. As with all heating systems, regular servicing will help the boiler burn more cleanly and efficiently, and it is important to match all boilers to modern central heating controls.
