Oil Boiler Installation
There are more than 4 million households in the UK that are not connected to the national gas network; nowadays a popular alternative to electricity for home heating is an oil boiler. Installing an oil boiler can be of benefit to the average homeowner in several ways; firstly, modern units are far more energy efficient so they can save you money on heating, they are also better for the environment as they produce significantly less carbon dioxide.
Oil fired boilers are every bit as quiet and compact as other modern condensing boilers, whether floor or wall mounted. They are surprisingly easy to use and the only real difference you will notice compared to gas or electric is having your oil delivered and having an oil tank to keep topped up. You have the advantage of being able to choose your oil supplier so you can shop around and compare prices.
When you opt for a new oil boiler installation you won’t need to worry about insurance or repair bills as the warranty will last, on average, 5 years so it is a sound investment that will continue to save you money for many years in the future. You can typically expect an energy efficiency boost of a minimum of 37% from a condensing boiler if your old boiler is 5 years old or more, which will save you a lot of money, particularly if you opt for a power flush on your central heating system at the same time as the new boiler installation.
There are three types of condensing boilers to choose from, depending on the size and location of your house, our specialist team will help you make the best choice between a combi, regular and system oil boiler installation. Always insist on having your new condensing oil boiler fitted by an oftec certified engineer for peace of mind and safety.
Condensing oil boilers are, without doubt, the most efficient and building regulations require all new boilers to be the condensing type anyway. The way they work is ingenious; they use a heat exchanger system that uses the exhaust gases that are normally wasted to pre heat the water in the boiler, thereby saving energy, therefore fuel, needed to further heat the water to the required operating temperature. Here at KDE we are experts when it comes to supplying all aspects of heating systems including the very latest oil boiler designs; our team of highly trained oftec engineers and friendly staff will be able to help you to make the wisest choice for your home.
