New Year New Oil Fired Boiler

Has your oil boiler seen better days? Thinking of getting a new one? To help you make an informed decision on which brand here’s some information on the best Oil Boiler’s for 2022.

According to data collected in May 2020, 85% of UK households use gas-fired boilers to heat up their homes and provide hot water. However, around four million households aren’t connected to the Gas Grid. Instead, they rely on a range of alternative heating fuels such as LPG, oil, solid fuels, electricity or solar to make their homes toasty!

If you’re one of these four million, then you might want to look at the right options to heat up your home, especially if your old heating system is ready to retire or you’re planning to renovate your home.

Here, we’ll take a look at the best oil boilers out there to help you choose the right oil boiler for your home (and wallet!). But first, you might want to find out what type of boiler you have, before you take the plunge.
