The Benefits of Oil Fuelled Heating Systems

Posted by admin

Oil fuelled heating systems are perhaps not the most common option when it comes to heating your home, however it’s still an increasingly popular choice for many homeowners. Perhaps the reason they’re not quite as well known is that many people are unsure of how they operate and also what advantages there are to these types of heating systems.

Oil fuelled heating systems use a wet heating system, wherein the boiler first heats water and this heated water is circulated to the radiators and taps in the house. The oil for the system has to be delivered to your doorstep and it can be stored in a special tank, which can be bought or rented from the oil supplier.

There are two main options when it comes to oil fuelled heating systems, you can invest in a heat only system or a combination condensing oil fuelled boiler. The latter comes with an internal storage for storing hot water for taps and does not provide instant heating that is common in gas boilers. As per building regulations, the minimum seasonal efficiency or SEDBUK value of a combination oil fuelled boiler should stand at 86%. An A-grade boiler usually will have a SEDBUK value of about 90%, making it ideal for homes.
