Condensing oil-fired boiler

Oil-fired System or Regular-Heat Only boiler

With Oil-fired boilers hot water is stored in a cylinder. Hot water is stored and made available throughout the house, but it isn’t instantaneous; once hot water runs out it will need to heat up again.

Oil-fired combination boiler

This type of boiler has the advantage of providing hot water on demand without requiring a water cylinder. Oil-fired boilers are slightly slower to instantaneously heat water than their gas counterparts, so usually have a small built in storage tank and are better suited to smaller properties.

Condensing oil-fired boilers

This is a highly energy-efficient boiler which captures heat from the flu and re-uses it, which is excellent news for your fuel bills.

It is a requirement that all new gas boilers installed are condensing boilers, while non-condensing oil boilers are still available there is no practical benefit in using them.
