COVID-19 Notice: We’re still installing & repairing boilers, safely
If you live in one of the UK’s 4 million homes that are not connected to a mains gas supply, it’s likely that you have an oil-fired boiler for your heating and hot water. Well-maintained oil boilers can last for up to 20 years, but if your boiler has started to break down, require regular repairs, perform poorly, or has caused your heating bills to rise, it might be time to consider upgrading to a new, more efficient model.
At NCS, we’ll help you to choose the right oil-fired boiler for your home or business. Using our decades of experience in the industry and unrivalled technical expertise, we ensure that each boiler we install, service or repair provides complete customer satisfaction, keeping you warm all year round. We are also experienced in installing and replacing domestic oil tanks for an all-in-one professional service.
We only fit and install new oil-fired boilers that are tried and tested, using well-known and highly reliable boiler manufacturers including Worcester, HRM and Grant. As approved installers, we can offer extended warranties of up to 7 years. The system can be fully flushed during the installation process using the latest Power Flushing technology. Magna filters and inline scale reducers will be installed to ensure you get the maximum life-span from your new system. Prices vary dependent on boiler choice, system design and budget.
We can give you an instant estimate as to how much a new boiler would cost. This is a free, online, no-obligation estimate that will give you an indicative price for a boiler we’d recommend is best suited to your home.
Modern condensing oil boilers come in several different types, each offering benefits for different usage scenarios based on the size of your home and your heating and hot water demands. Available in both wall and floor-mounted variants, the two most popular choices are conventional or combi boilers.
A standard oil boiler incorporates a boiler and extended controls, a feed and expansion cistern, a hot water cylinder typically in the airing cupboard, and cold water storage tanks located in the loft. The tank delivers water down to the boiler or cylinder as and when it needs to be heated, either on your own set schedule or with a short delay before you are able to access hot water. With its own water storage tank, a standard boiler is able to meet the demands of multiple taps and showers operating at once without any effect on water pressure. Once you have used up all of the hot water, you will need to wait until the boiler fires up and produces new hot water.
Standard oil boilers are most suitable for larger households where hot water is needed in significant quantities for heating, baths, washing machines and dishwashers. As standard boilers require a tank in the loft and a hot water cylinder, plenty of space is needed.
In comparison, a combi oil boiler delivers heating and hot water on demand within a compact heating system that doesn't require a tank or a cylinder. The boiler instantly heats the cold water from the mains supply whenever a hot water tap or shower is turned on. By eliminating the need to store water, combi boilers are a great space-saving option, whilst offering significant fuel cost and installation savings due to their compact systems. Since a combi boiler supplies water directly from the mains without its own water tank, combi boilers tend to reduce dramatically reduce water pressure if multiple taps or showers are used in different rooms.
Combi boiler systems are generally more suitable for smaller households, flats and bungalows where space is at a premium and there are a smaller number of users with modest heating and hot water demands. Some of the latest combination boilers can suit larger households.
