Heating Oil For Boilers

At Fuelfighter we offer both standard kerosene and premium kerosene for boilers, also known as Keromax. Kerosene is a popular fuel for heating domestic and commercial properties which are off the main gas grid. Also referred to as boiler juice, 28 second oil and domestic heating oil, kerosene must be stored in a secure and well-maintained tank which is usually located either outside or within your garage. According to Sutherland Tables, domestic heating oil is still one of the more cost effective methods of heating your home if you are off the main gas grid. 

Benefits of Premium Heating Oil

Using a premium heating oil fuel can benefit your oil storage tank by preventing the possibility of tank erosion caused by fuel. It works by:

  • Cleaning up a dirty boiler, fuel system and storage tank.
  • Helps to protect an already clean system and prevent boiler problems. 
  • It will also disperse any sludge build up from the bottom of your tank that could cause filter or injector blockages.

In 2007 the British standard specification for heating oil was changed and the maximum sulphur content was halved. This has meant that boiler injectors and burners tend to build up soot more quickly, which can lead to service issues and decreased efficiency. These side effects can be eradicated by using premium heating oil for boilers. This fuel benefits from an additive (usually added at the point of delivery by the driver) which increases the efficiency of the fuel.

Additional benefits include:

  • Increased shelf life of fuel while in the tank.
  • Inhibits further deposits in the bottom of the tank.
  • Lowers carbon dioxide emissions.
  • Helps keep injectors and burners clean, providing a constant temperature output.
  • Increases overall heating system efficiency.
