Oil Fired Central Heating
Whilst the majority of UK households are connected to the national mains gas network, approximately four million UK households are considered “off the grid”. Because they are not connected to the mains gas supply, they must instead rely on alternative sources of fuel to meet their hot water and central heating needs.
Oil central heating is one such alternative. Domestic heating oil (also known as kerosene) is a highly efficient fuel, and is delivered by road and stored in a tank on your premises. Modern tanks come in all shapes and sizes, are made from plastic or fabricated steel and are usually installed outside your house or below-ground.
Oil fired central heating works in a similar way to mains gas central heating. The oil is burned to heat water, which is channelled to your radiators and your taps to give you central heating and hot water.
The Benefits of Oil Fired Central Heating
There are many benefits to oil fired central heating systems.
Oil fired central heating is highly efficient, giving you a great return on every unit of energy and on-demand heating and hot water. Not only that, oil fired central heating is generally the most cost effective method of heating your home in rural areas where there is no mains gas supply.
Fuelling the oil boiler is automatic, with no necessity to load the appliance or residue to dispose of as with solid fuel or biomass. Biomass is labour intensive, with boilers having a high initial cost and generally requiring more space, as they are larger than oil boilers and require space to store the fuel.
