Find out more about Heating Oil

Oil is a fuel source which is used all over Ireland whether it be for domestic or commerical use. With the use of gas based heating systems becoming more popular, many companies and households are opting to keep their oil based heating systems as they are highly efficient and have low running costs.

Where does Home heating Oil come from?

Home heating oil is formed using crude oil, going through a process called fractional distillation. When crude oil goes through the heating process it is seperated at different temperatures to play its part in the creation of other products such as 'Tarmac' for our roads. Heating oil has many other names such as Kero, Kersene, Burning oil and 28Sec.

How does your Heating Oil system work?

Some people own a heating oil system but don't know how it actaully works. ValueOils.ie is here to educate you..

  • Your tank is connected to a boiler 
  • Your boiler has a dedicated pipeline that pumps the oil into it, the pipe combusts to heat a seperate water supply.
  • The heated water is pumped from the boiler around a property through a connected pipe and radiator system

Using Heating Oil is very efficent giving you a better return for every unit used.
