Boiler Installation Services From SPM Plumbing and Heating
Here at SPM Plumbing and Heating, we offer oil boiler installation services to clients throughout Fordingbridge and the surrounding areas. We provide the highest levels of professionalism and the benefit of our many years’ worth of experience working with oil fuelled appliances in Fordingbridge. Oil boilers are less commonly found in the UK compared to their natural gas counterparts, although they remain an attractive option for those properties that are not connected to the natural gas network. Most oil boiler appliances are fed by a supply of stored oil which is kept in a tank (externally to the property). The benefit of this is that the homeowner is free to shop around for a good deal on fuel and isn’t tied to one supplier. If you’d like additional information on the oil boiler installation services that we offer, be sure to get in touch with our experienced team today. We’d love to hear from you and assist you in any way we possibly can.
What Types Of Oil Boilers Are Available?
Oil boilers do practically everything their conventional gas-fired counterparts can and just as you can with gas boilers, you can choose from conventional heat-only or combination oil boilers. All new boiler installations will utilise condensing technology and adhere to the latest efficiency guidelines. Condensing oil boilers are designed to recycle the heat with an extra heat exchanger so that the hot exhaust gases are used to pre-heat the water in the boiler system, therefore reducing energy consumption and costs. If you’d like a full overview of the oil boilers available to all of our customers in Fordingbridge, be sure to get in touch with our experienced team of oil boiler installation specialists today.
How much Does A New Oil Boiler Cost?
At SPM Plumbing and Heating, we’re proud to offer an oil boiler installation service which is second-to-none. Every oil boiler installation is different, so in order to give you an accurate price for the work involved, we will need to talk to you in the first instance to find out more and organise for a consultant to visit on a free no obligation basis to carry out a site survey. We partner with leading manufacturers for our oil boilers, and are more than happy discuss the services and specifications for Worcester Bosch boilers or any other boilers, including specific model information and performance statistics.

Can I Have A Domestic Oil Boiler Installed In A Loft Space?
Although oil boilers of below 45kW output can be installed in a loft space, we recommend that you avoid doing so. If you intend to install an oil boiler in a loft space, the oil boiler installation must comply with British Standards, to ensure the safe operation of the appliance, the safety of the technicians who may work on it and to protect the fabric of the building against fire and oil contamination. You’ll also need to consider the weight of the appliance, the potential for noise nuisance, and how you will supply oil to it.
Under British Standards 5410: Part 1 1997, you must take into account:
- This type of installation should only be considered if there is no alternative location
- The loft space must have a permanent means of access
- The area between the loft access point and the boiler service area, and the service area around the boiler must have permanent flooring that will withstand the weight of the boiler plus a service technician with tools, and must also have a handrail
- The boiler must be of the balanced fuel type, and stand in a drip tray with a float that will automatically shut off the oil supply when oil is detected in the tray
- You must be able to isolate the appliance and the oil supply from outside of the loft space
