This company was extremely easy to deal with. The staff I had dealings with were very helpful, especially Carlo. When there was a slight hiccup with the first installation company assigned to us, Carlo got on the case immediately and reassigned another company. The company they used were extremely professional. Overall I am very pleased with the whole process.

I spoke to a few firms nobody would do it.i phoned Warm Front and spoke to Carlo, we can do that mate! 1 month later i have a new combi boiler , hot water on demand and a warm house for the first time in 13 years.

Are Oil Boilers Expensive To Run?

As you will be aware, LPG & OIL heating are the most expensive forms of heating .
Running an oil boiler tends to cost about 25 % more as running a gas boiler.
LPG heating is is a lot more expensive than mains gas, but it’s a cheaper  option to installing electric heating if you are in an off gas area.
There are other costs too for renting tanks to hold the fuel.

How long do oil combi boilers last?

On average, oil boilers can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years.
However, the lifespan of your oil boiler will depend on several factors, including the quality of the boiler, how well it is maintained, and the frequency of use.
Like any appliance, regular maintenance is key to ensuring the longevity of your oil boiler.

How Efficient Is An Oil Boiler?

Oil is very expensive to use as your main fuel but it is a more efficient fuel than gas or LPG.
Modern oil boilers can have efficiencies of around 85% to 95%

A new condensing oil boiler will typically have an efficiency of at least 90% while a non-condensing oil boiler will be around 85% efficient

Older oil boilers tend to be 60% to 70% efficient. Boilers decrease in efficiency as they age, so the longer you have it, the less efficient it becomes.

This is because oil boilers use nearly all of the heat and additional gas that’s created from the burning of fuel, turning this into extra heating energy so there’s less wastage. This means you’ll get a good return on every unit of energy.

What Is The Boiler Upgrade Scheme?

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is where everyone in the UK is eligible to replace their old boilers ( oil, gas , LPG ) for a Air Source Heat Pump  for less than a third of the price.

When getting an oil boiler service you will want to know what you are paying for and to ensure that it is worth the cost, therefore the engineer will inspect your boiler to ensure it is in good condition and test the efficiency. The average oil boiler service takes about an hour.

During this time, the engineer will:

  • Ask about any problems with your boiler.
  • Ensure compliance with safety regulations, and visually inspect the boiler and any associated pipes (including your oil tank or supply pipe).
  • Clean the flue.
  • To check combustion, use a flue gas analyzer.
  • Check your oil tank for water.
  • For any indications of leakage, inspect the supply line.
  • Clean the boiler casing.
  • Clean the heat exchanger and  burner
  • Replace the boiler nozzle.
  • To ensure that safety systems are working properly, test them (including any thermostats or pressure relief valves).
  • To verify that the boiler is operating properly, turn it on at the end so you have your heating and hot water

After your service is completed, the engineer will provide you with an OFTEC CD/11 form that lists all the work done.

What is cheaper to run gas or oil boiler?

In terms of running costs, oil is a more affordable way to heat your home than LPG or mains gas.

Electric heating comes out as the most expensive unless you opt for a heat pump.

How many UK homes use oil heating?

Around four million households in the united kingdom aren’t connected to the gas grid and so have to rely on alternative heating types such as  LPG, oil, solid fuels, electricity and solar. 

An estimated 1.1 million homes in the U.K currently run on oil heating.

Oil heating is also referred to as a ‘wet’ system because it burns fluid (oil).

What are the benefits of oil boilers?

  • More space: By having an external oil boiler you can free up space in the home that would be taken up by a combi boiler or internal oil boiler.
  • Isolated location: If you live off the mains gas grid then oil can be an excellent heating solution as it’s affordable and accessible.
  • Servicing & boiler repairs: If your oil boiler is located outside then it’s less disruptive to your daily life as your boiler can be fixed, replaced and refuelled without your home being turned into a workplace.
  • Less noise: Even modern A-rated condensing boilers create a certain level of background noise, you may not even be aware of it unless you turn the boiler off. If you have an older boiler the noise will be much more noticeable. An external oil boiler won’t be a source of noise pollution.
  • Carbon monoxide: Although carbon monoxide poisoning has become much rarer due to improved safety measures, there is still a chance of a leak causing symptoms. Having your boiler located outside negates the risk.
  • Leaks: Having an oil boiler located outside means that should the boiler leak or malfunction, there is less chance of it causing damage to your property, compared to a gas combi boiler located in your airing cupboard leaking.
  • External heating: If your oil boiler is located in an outbuilding, garage or shed it will serve to partially heat the building from heat loss.
