LPG Boilers

Liquified Petroleum Gas, LPG for short, is delivered by road and stored in a tank, just as heating oil is.

LPG, can save you up to 40% on your heating bills. We’ve been installing LPG Combi boilers for over 35 years. Providing economical heating and hot water supply to homes in Cheshire, we offer a guarantee for up to eight years on all Worcester Combi boiler installations. An LPG Combi boiler heats water as it enters your system through your pipes and radiators.

Combi boilers now account for over half of all new domestic boiler installations in Britain, every year.

  • Highly efficient fuel
  • Instant and constant hot water whenever you want it
  • Ingenious space-saving unit that doesn’t need a cold water tank
  • Save money – on installation time and only heat water when you need it

Oil Boilers

HHO or heating oil is a low viscosity, liquid petroleum product used as a fuel oil for boilers, which is usually delivered by road and stored in a tank which is stored close to your property. It’s normally used in a ‘wet’ heating system, where an oil-fired boiler heats water which provides central heating via radiators and hot water from the taps in your home.

If your source of heating and hot water is via an oil tank, you probably live in the countryside, or an older property, and may not have an option to update or change this. For some people, this is a real turn-off, but there are advantages to using heating oil.

Our OFTEC specialist engineers are experienced in the installation of all types of heating systems including oil powered boilers for homes which aren’t connected to a gas supply.

  • Pay for oil up-front so you know what you’re spending
  • Buy oil when it’s cheap and store it for colder weather
  • Highly efficient fuel
