Why get an oil boiler?

  • Placement – You can choose to have your oil boiler installation inside or outside your home. This means there’s more space within your home and the boiler doesn’t necessarily have to be an eyesore. 
  • Safety – Your OFTEC registered oil boiler engineers can install your boiler outside, meaning that should there be a leak or malfunction, your safety is not as much at risk as if you had a gas boiler inside your home. Of course, any issues should still be dealt with as quickly as possible by a qualified professional.
  • Isolated homes – Not every property is situated in a town or community. For this reason, it can be difficult and/or expensive to connect to the grid. Oil boilers are ideal for isolated homes since they don’t require mains connection. Instead, there is a tank which stores oil until it’s required. 
  • Longevity – Compared to gas boilers, oil boilers can have a longer lifespan. You can expect an oil boiler to last between 15 and 20 years with proper care and maintenance, while a gas boiler is more likely to last between 10 and 15 years.

Benefits of an oil boiler​

An estimated 1.1 million homes across the UK are heated by oil. Here are some of the main benefits of choosing an oil boiler:

Flexible

Homeowners with an oil boiler aren’t subject to the same supply restrictions as those with a gas boiler. In addition, no contracts are in place, meaning you can change to a cheaper supplier whenever you choose. This helps you to keep your heating bills down, particularly when prices fluctuate. 

Efficiency

A new oil boiler is typically 92-95% efficient, meaning there’s very little energy wastage. They also heat water on demand rather than having a stored backlog, which reduces energy output and saves on the amount of fuel required.

Compatible

Oil boilers can be installed alongside renewable heating systems like heat pumps. This makes heating your home even more efficient and reduces carbon emissions. They can also work in tandem with solar panels for optimum efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the boiler you choose and your needs, a new oil boiler will usually cost between £2,500 and £4,500. Contact the Aura Heating team to chat about your requirements and request a quote for oil boiler replacement. 

In order to ensure your boiler is fitted safely, correctly, and in compliance with the relevant regulations, it’s vital that an OFTEC registered engineer carries out your oil boiler installation. 

The OFTEC registered engineers at Aura Heating are fully qualified to install oil boilers. They will ensure the installation complies with the relevant regulations and that all safety and noise requirements are met.

Under current plans, gas and oil boilers will not be installed in newbuild homes from 2025. That means other households will still be able to buy an oil boiler, and those with an existing boiler will be able to continue using it to the end of its lifespan. 

The government has a range of schemes available for those requiring a new boiler. Several of these require you to meet eligibility criteria, but for households looking to replace an oil boiler with a heat pump, there is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme. Contact us today to learn more about the available grants and how to access them. 

If your boiler is over 15 or 20 years old, we recommend replacing it. A 30-year-old boiler may still be functioning, but it will be much less efficient by this point than a new boiler, and your bills will likely be higher than they need to be. You need not necessarily replace your boiler with another boiler - hybrid and heat pump systems are also available. Contact our team to find out more. 

Depending on the complexity of the job, it can take between one and three days to fit a new oil boiler. Our team will be able to give you an estimate after completing a site survey. 

The OFTEC registered oil heating engineers at Aura Heating can service your boiler on an annual basis. We also offer care plans for your appliance, enabling you to spread the cost of servicing and other care with fixed monthly payments.
