Acumen Oil Heating Systems
Hige efficiency with Over 90 ‘A’ rated models on the market
Highly efficient Installers
What type of boiler should be installed?It has been
mandatory since April 2007 to install condensing oil
boilers to comply withBuilding Regulations. Modern oil
fired boilers can be highly efficient and there are now over
90 “A” rated models on the market.
Oil-fired combination boilers are also available, providing hot
water on demand without the need for a hot water tank. However,
it is fair to say that they are a bit slower to provide hot water than
some gas combi boilers, and that they are not always recommended
except for smaller households.Oil boilers are available with both
balanced flues (where the air for combustion is drawn in through a pipe
concentric with the extract flue) and with open flues (where the air for
combustion is drawn from the room in which the boiler is sited). Although
Building Regulations permit both types of boiler to be located in domestic
garages, we recommend that only balanced flue boilers are used in those areas.
Most modern boilers use a pressure jet burner; although some vaporising burner
machines are still available on the market, they may only be fitted into a limited
number of locations.
Almost all UK domestic central heating systems use 28sec oil, which is sometimes
known as kerosene. This fuel burns more cleanly than heavier oil products such as gas
oil, which is also known as 35sec heating oil. 28sec oil can also be used in kitchen ranges
such as AGA cookers.
