An oil fired central heating system is a key alternative for over 2 million homes in the UK that aren’t connected to the gas network.
If you are one of these homes and you meet the criteria for the government’s ECO scheme, you could qualify for a free oil boiler.
Not only can you get a free oil boiler if you qualify, it also comes with a 2 year manufacturer guarantee.Check to see if you’re eligible
An oil fired heating system works in a very similar way to a gas heating system. But, instead of using a gas boiler to heat the water and provide heat to your radiators, an oil fired boiler is used.
The biggest difference between gas and oil is an oil system needs an oil tank and it’ll require regular oil deliveries.
If you choose to heat your home with an oil fired heating system, there are both heat-only and combination condensing oil boilers, so like gas, it’s not one system for all conditions.
According to Which? oil is a more efficient fuel than gas, so in theory, you should receive a healthy return on each unit of energy you use.

We have a range of boiler types and models, so we can offer a solution to meet your needs depending on your circumstances.

Just like gas, the price for oil can move up and down over time. Historically, oil heating has been more expensive than gas, but the Energy Saving Trust report states that oil heating is currently a cheaper option than gas.
The advantage of this is you have the option to buy oil when you’re happy with the price.
