Advice on Oil Fuelled Heating Systems for Homes
Posted on 30th July 2014
Many home-owners across the UK have no option but to heat their home with oil. It is not the most common form of home heating. However, this kind of heating system does have its advantages and many people are not aware of them. This could be one reason why many people choose not to heat their homes with heating oil.
Oil fuelled heating systems use a wet heating system, wherein the boiler first heats water and this heated water is circulated to the radiators, and usually also taps in the house (depending on what type of boiler you get), the same way as a gas boiler works.
The domestic heating oil for the system (which can be ordered and supplied directly to your property by Crown Oil), needs to be stored in a specially designed storage tank. If you do not currently have a suitable tank, or would like some advice on upgrading a current storage tank.

Domestic Heating Oil Solutions for your Home
The two main options when it comes to oil-fuelled heating systems are a heat only system or a combination condensing oil fuelled boiler. The first comes with internal storage for storing hot water for taps and does not provide instant heating.
A combi boiler is where the cold water supply goes directly into the boiler and is heated on demand. The water is then pumped from the boiler to radiators and taps as and when needed. This option is cheaper on heating costs and space saving as a hot water cistern is not required.
As per building regulations, the minimum seasonal efficiency or SEDBUK value of a combination oil fuelled boiler should stand at 86%. An A-grade boiler usually will have a SEDBUK value of about 90%, making it ideal for homes.
