Oil boilers are more efficient than gas and are most often utilised when the area you live in is not connected to the main gas connection. They work in a similar way to their gas boiler Glasgow equivalents, providing heating and hot water via taps and radiators in your home There are, however, available in heating-only versions too. Much like your conventional boiler, an oil boiler Glasgow benefits from a 7-day thermostat, Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) and a room thermostat, which all combine to control the heat in your home effectively. The main difference between an oil boiler and a regular gas system is that you’ll have to have your oil delivered to your home by truck. To conform with building regulations, since 1 April 2007 oil-fired boilers must have a Sedbuk efficiency of 86% so are a good choice when looking for a high efficiency boiler.

What Types of Oil Boilers Are There?
Most oil boilers come with a separate hot water tank to heat water economically; although some combi boilers are available, they tend to be slower than traditional gas boilers and are only generally recommended for smaller properties.
There are two types oil boilers, internal and external. Internal boilers can be wall mounted – which is more suitable for smaller properties – or floor mounted. Internal oil boilers come with precise heating and hot water control and are compatible with optional controls such as smart meters for maximum home comfort. Outdoor versions boast the same benefits as internal boilers but frees up valuable space in your home. External boilers are encased in a hard protective cabinet that protects it from whatever elements the Scottish weather may throw at it, including much needed in-built frost protection!
Oil boilers can sometimes, though rarely, suffer a “lockout”. This is usually caused by contaminated oil, which can be due to a damaged tank or leaving the boiler uncovered. Here at the Glasgow Boiler Service our OFTEC installers are happy to help with cleaning your tank and getting your boiler back in fully working order.
What type of oil do they use?
Almost every domestic oil boiler uses kerosene or 28sec oil. This is a much cleaner burning material in comparison to other oils, and consumers might recognize 28sec oil as it’s the same oil that is used in AGA cookers.
Green alternatives are starting to develop here in the UK, but are not yet widely available. Waste feedstock could be used to create a clean vegetable oil. Consumers must consult with their boiler manufacture first to see if new oil materials are compatible. For our environmentally concerned customers, it could be worth supplementing your existing oil boiler with a wood burner using sustainable fuel to heat your homes. The experts at the Glasgow Boiler Service are equipped with the expertise to discuss all your central heating installation needs.
