Are you looking to replace your oil boiler?

As your oil boiler gets older, it will become less efficient, more expensive to run, more likely to breakdown and may even become unsafe!

Efficient boilers make a big difference to heating costs and carbon footprints.  If it’s time to change your oil boiler, it’s important to choose the right one for your circumstances, for instance, consider the number of radiators you need to run, whether you have the space for a hot water cylinder, or whether another source of heating would suit you better.

Consider your options:

The Government’s Clean Growth Strategy commits to phasing out high carbon fossil fuel heating in the 2020’s. If your oil boiler has come to the end of it’s life and/or you are considering changing it ring us on 01423 770666 or email us at sales@northernenergy.stgng.co to discuss your options and alternative sources of heating.  We will be happy to advise you on the choices available.

Cleaner, greener alternatives to oil include LPG, electricity and renewable solutions, e.g. ground or air source heat pumps, solar panels and wood boilers.  There are pros and cons to each.

LPG:

Cheaper to buy than oil boilers, LPG boilers are usually compatible with existing heating systems so you won’t need to change your radiators or pipework.  LPG is cleaner burning, producing 15% less carbon dioxide than oil and 33% less than coal, with very low sulphur emissions, and boilers run at 95% efficiency.  LPG is also virtually impossible to steal!

Switching to LPG is easy – at Northern Energy, we supply fuel for both oil and LPG central heating.  Call our LPG team now on 01423 772789 or email us at lpgonline@northernenergy.stgng.co  to find out more.

Both oil and LPG users are eligible for our Privilege Plus Package*, providing added value with great benefits, including VAT free deliveries, easy payment options, emergency boiler breakdown cover and an automatic refilling service.

Electric:

Unlike mains gas, electricity is available almost everywhere in the UK.  With a range of electric heating choices that can be easily and cheaply installed, no pipework or tank is required.  Electricity is more expensive than oil or LPG, but run alongside a low carbon heating source such as a heat pump or solar panels, large savings can be made on energy bills and payments are available from the Government under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).  To find out more click here.

Renewable Solutions:

Generated from natural sources such as sun, wind and water, renewable solutions are good for the environment, producing no or little emissions.

  • Heat Pumps use electricity to run on so are not zero carbon.  They take heat at a low temperature from the ground or outside air and upgrade it to a higher temperature.  They deliver heat at a lower temperature than oil or LPG so it is essential your home is well insulated.
  • Solar Panels depend on the way your roof faces and are used for heating water but rarely for space heating. They capture the sun’s energy and convert the sunlight into electricity which can be used to run household appliances, lighting and hot water.
  • Wood boilers can give low carbon heating but you will need space to fit the boiler and store the fuel. Pellet boilers are larger and heavier than an equivalent oil or LPG boiler and you will need storage in a dry place such as a garage or shed for the pellets.

If you use renewable energy to heat your home, you could benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme which is a Government scheme to support renewable energy systems.  To find out more click here.

Been with you now since 2005 would recommend you to anyone Mr W
Always good service from ring (a day before) to say delivery is on it's way to the tank being filled up, thanks guys! Mr T
Last year I recommended you to my neighbour and he is equally happy with your service. Mrs S
I have just recommended your company to a friend who's just moved into a new home and uses oil. I have given you 10 in ratings. Mr M
We find the whole service really easy & efficient Mrs M
We are new customers, but the one delivery we have had came on time. The driver was very friendly and quick with no mess. Very pleased and no need to go elsewhere! Mrs D
I have always been very happy with the service I've recieved from Northern Energy and in fact have got you 2 more customers in the village. The delivery men are always courteous and I think that goes a long way! Northern Energy get a five star rating from me. Mr C
I am pleased with your automatic top-up system. It saves me worrying about running out and presumably saves you money if you can top up a group of neighbouring customers in one delivery - so win-win. Mr D
We have been very impressed with the service received from Northern Energy. The team are always very friendly and always willing to help in any which way they can. If we are cancelling a delivery there are never any questions asked. Recently we had a new oil tank fitted and the oil was delivered within two days of being ordered (we had allowed up to 5 days). Mr K
As a customer I love the all inclusive package of oil and maintenance that you offer. As a second home owner, we never run out of oil like we do ‘at home’ because you keep us ‘topped up’. Mr C
