Oil boilers are a popular choice for home heating in the UK, especially in rural areas where natural gas is not readily available. These boilers use oil as a fuel source to generate heat for your home, typically heating oil or kerosene. But how long do oil boilers last?
On average, oil boilers can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years. However, the lifespan of your oil boiler will depend on several factors, including the quality of the boiler, how well it is maintained, and the frequency of use. Proper maintenance is key to ensuring the longevity of your oil boiler. This includes regularly replacing the filter, checking the oil supply, and having a professional service the boiler at least once a year. Failing to properly maintain your oil boiler can result in a shorter lifespan and potentially costly repairs.
The quality of the boiler itself is also a significant factor in determining its lifespan. Investing in a high-quality, energy-efficient oil boiler can pay off in the long run as it may last longer and be more cost-effective to operate. The frequency of use also plays a role in how long your oil boiler will last. Boilers that are used frequently, such as those in homes with large families or those that are used to heat a large space, may not last as long as boilers that are used less frequently.
