Replacement oil boiler
Our heating system accounts for more than 60% of our annual energy bills, which makes it as important as ever to ensure you have an efficient boiler that’s not likely to breakdown unexpectedly.
As with gas boilers, oil boilers can breakdown or fault at any time, leaving you without heat and hot water for your property. This could end up costing you over £300 in repairs depending on the actual fault.
Oil boilers of more than 10 years of age are prone to suffering a fault of some kind, and the only way to guarantee not experiencing this during the winter is to have a replacement boiler installed.
Oil boilers are often installed into homes that don’t have access to the National Grid’s supply of mains gas. If you do have access to the Grid network then consider replacing an oil boiler with a gas system and you’ll instantly see huge savings on fuel.
Oil boiler replacement benefits
By replacing an old, inefficient oil boiler with a new A-rated model, you’ll:
Reduce your heating bills by as much as £300 a year, helping you to escape fuel poverty
Heat your home more efficiently, with heat distributed evenly throughout your home. When a new boiler is fitted, your pipes and radiators will often receive a powerflush to improve efficiency
Cut your home’s carbon emissions with heightened efficiency, helping the environment to reduce global warming and the Government meet EU targets
Oil condensing boilers
Condensing boilers have grown in popularity throughout the UK because of their high energy efficiency. With a larger flue, more hot gas is retained and used for heat.
The efficiency of condensing boilers is typically over 90%, compared to inefficient systems seeing just 70% efficiency.
Combi boilers tend to be the most popular than condensing boilers and come as either oil or gas heated. With a combi boiler you can heat your home and be provided with hot water on demand. There’s no need for a water storage tank which will save you plenty of room in your loft or airing cupboard.

Energy Performance of Houses
Homes are given an energy ranking depending on how efficient they are and ratings are presented in the information down below. This ranges from A, by far the most energy efficient, to G, the very least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have more affordable energy bills as more heat will probably be retained in the home. It is possible to improve your home's efficiency with insulation including upvc double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
