How To Increase Oil Boiler Efficiency

Heating oil is an efficient and affordable method, but only if you use it in the correct way. At Compass Fuels, we are going to let you in on how to make the most out of your heating oil.

Method 1: Scheduling Your Annual Oil Boiler Service

One of the most crucial ways to increase your boiler’s efficiency is to have a yearly boiler service. Oil boilers need to be cleaned and checked to make sure you get the maximum usage out of them. If your boiler is dirty or not working properly, it can not only be inefficient, but it can also be dangerous. It is important to ensure that you get your boiler officially serviced by a qualified engineer.

Method 2: Controlling your thermostat

It is important to use your thermostat to its full potential. You could be losing money on your heating bill. Controlling your thermostat by setting the temperature a few degrees lower during the winter and setting it to a moderate level can benefit your boiler’s efficiency.

Method 3: Bleeding Your Radiators

By bleeding your radiators, you can increase your boiler’s oil efficiency. Bleeding your radiators means you are removing any built-up air inside the radiator. Doing this means you are allowing the radiator to run more smoothly and efficiently. We recommend doing this at least once a year to keep them running in top condition.

Method 4: Upgrading Your Boiler

The majority of oil boilers should be replaced when they are over 10 years old. If your boiler is in poor condition or not running efficiently, it may need replacing more urgently. New model boilers are a lot more efficient than the older models due to the newer advanced technology. Upgrading can make a noticeable difference in your energy bills.
