What is an oil boiler?

An oil boiler provides central heating and domestic hot water to a property by using oil as a fuel source.

Oil boilers are an ideal solution for properties not connected to the mains gas grid. The oil utilised by this type of boiler is stored in a tank located at the property.

Other than the fuel source, they work exactly the same as other types of boilers. Oil is a more energy-efficient and cost-effective fuel compared to LPG to run your central heating system on.

While there’s not an overwhelming option in the current market for oil boilers, you still have a good range to choose from when choosing an oil boiler installation.

How much does an oil boiler installation cost?

On average, the installation of a premium oil boiler and a new tank can cost between £4000 to £8000.

The average cost of a premium oil boiler installation for a 3 bedroom house is £4978.

This figure is based on a combi boiler to combi boiler swap and 11 TRVs in a detached home with 12 radiators and one bathroom.

If you are running an old oil boiler and paying around 40p per litre (as of 2017) and spending £1200 on your total oil spend, switching to a new condensing oil boiler with over 90% efficiency could save you 30 to 40% on your annual oil consumption.

Frequently asked questions

For an oil boiler installation at your property, you will require an oil storage tank.

There are three main types of oil boiler tanks:

  • Single Skin: suitable for installation in a reinforced concrete or masonry bund
  • Double Skin: predominantly used for commercial underground applications
  • Integrally Bunded: used above ground and within buildings

Oil storage tanks are usually made of steel or polyethylene. They can be supplied in a range of shapes and sizes to suit the site requirements. If you don’t already have an oil storage tank, we are able to assist you in choosing the most suitable type and size for your property.

For most homes, an oil storage tank between 1000-2500L will be suitable. Oil storage tanks are usually fitted with a device that will warn you when the tank contains low levels of oil.

When installing an oil storage tank, it is important that the regulations are followed for safety and environmental reasons.

As oil engineers with vast experience, this is something that we will assist you with during your oil boiler installation.

Yes, fumes from oil burning can be dangerous, particularly if they contain carbon monoxide (CO) and other harmful substances. When oil is burned in a boiler, it should ideally combust completely, producing water vapor and carbon gases. Carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, and highly toxic gas is also produced.

Flues bring air into the boiler as well as provide an exhaust route to the outside world.

No, not anytime soon anyway. With so many homes off-grid and so many unable to be retrofitted with air source heat pumps oil or LPG is usually the only fuel available. Electric boilers are expensive and usually require an expensive 3-phase supply.

They tend to be more expensive to run than gas because of the price of the fuel being used. Modern oil boilers are highly efficient and burn with a blue flame. Blue flame means the fuel is vaporised and burns a lot more cleanly and efficiently than older yellow flame systems.
