    FAQs

    Do I need to use an OFTEC certified installer?

    The Oil Firing Technical Association or OFTEC operate a competent persons scheme to certify installers. It’s always recommended to use an installer with this certification as it proves they have the training and expertise to properly install your boiler and give you realistic advice on the efficiency of your system. Also, OFTEC registered installers offer Workmanship Warranties to protect you if there are any problems after installation.

    What size of oil boiler do i need

    What Size Of Oil Boiler Do I Need?

    When it comes to oil boilers, there are three main types - the combi, system and conventional. Within these types, you’d discover there happens to be a wide range of sizes to choose from. First and foremost, we must note that the size has to do with the amount of energy they offer to your heating and hot water system rather than the physical dimensions.

    The rule of thumb is, the larger your house (which implies the more hot taps, radiators and showers), the more powerful (bigger) the oil boiler you’d require. For instance, a four-bedroom apartment with three showers occupied by a family of four will definitely need a more powerful boiler than a a bungalow featuring a single occupant.

    It is, however, important to also note that it’s not all about going for the biggest oil boiler. If you decide to choose an oil boiler with a much bigger capacity that needed, not only will you be wasting money on the initial purchase as well as installation, but also lose money operating it. And in a converse scenario, if you go for the cheaper and lower-powered oil boiler in an attempt to save up some money, you’re most likely to end up with tepid radiators while also frequently running out of hot water. Hence, the importance of determining the appropriate size of boiler for your particular household before purchase.

    To determine the appropriate size, determining the number of bathrooms, radiators as well as the total number of people living in the property would be a step in the right direction.

    Numbers of Radiators Combi System Boiler Regular

    Up to 10 24 to 27kW 9 to 18kW 9 to 18kW

    10 to 15 28 to 34kW 18 to 26kW 18 to 26kW

    15 to 20 35 to 42kW 27 to 40kW 27 to 40kW

    Are oil boilers as efficient as gas boilers?

    Yes. Modern condensing oil boilers are ‘A’ rated and therefore as efficient as comparable gas boilers. They come with the same controls as gas central heating systems, so you can still use a thermostat to control your heating efficiently. Also, oil is more efficient as a fuel source than gas, so you will get more energy per unit of oil. Oil prices can fluctuate, however, so ensure that you find a good supplier.

    How to install oil boiler heating system

    How To Install An Oil Boiler Heating System

    Just like several other skills, the installation of an oil boiler heating system can be a challenge. It requires enough persistence to actually get right, so if you’re the type with little patience, we’d recommend you hire the services of a professional oil boiler heating system fitter who can guarantee the best results and save you time and extra money due to potential damages.

    To install your boiler system yourself, it’s always advisable to start by getting the information on the best installation processes from the supplying company which will go a long way to save you from future headaches. However, we’ve put together this guide to give you a basic knowledge on how its done. Let’s have a look!

    lRead Instruction Manual

    • Carefully read and digest the instruction manual thoroughly.

    • Make sure you understand the installation diagrams

    • Spread out the materials and get familiar with them.

    lFigure Out What Goes Where

    • Take your time to determine where everything goes in relation to the others.

    • Identify the new radiator’s position.

    • Get sufficient sealants to prevent possible leakages inside the walls.

    lIdentify The Pipe Routes

    • Determine the pipe routes while fitting the new radiators

    lInstall The Boiler

    • Turn off water and all electrics

    • Fit the boiler into the wall

    • Make sure the fittings are secured.

    lInstall The Radiator

    • The effectiveness of your home’s heating system is as good as the radiators you incorporate and how good they’re installed.

    • You may have to utilize extra radiators in large open plan kitchens and living rooms (for effective heating).

    lOffer Ventilation

    • Once you’ve successfully installed the new radiator, a small dose of air ventilation would be needed.

    • Turn the key of each valve located at the bottom, do not stop until a little amount of water spills over the top of the unit.
