About our Heating oil
Across the Northern Ireland, oil is a primary fuel source for commercial and domestic heating systems. Historically heating oil systems have been used in rural and agricultural areas where gas networks were absent, however even with the introduction of gas supplies to these areas, many establishments retain their oil based heating systems.
Where does it come from?
Heating oil is a product obtained from crude oil through a process called fractional distillation. Crude oil is heated and separated at different temperatures to produce different products which are used around the world every day; from bitumen (used to tarmac roads) to fuels including the same heating oil used to heat your home.
Heating oil systems
Heating oil systems work in the following way:
- Oil is stored in a tank (either above ground or on a subterranean level)
- The tank is connected to a boiler
- Oil is pumped into the boiler through a dedicated pipeline where it combusts in order to heat a separate water supply
- The heated water is pumped from the boiler around a property through a connected pipe and radiator system. Heating oil is an incredibly efficient fuel – this means you get excellent return for every unit of energy used.
