HVO Boilers best bet for rural homes

Posted On: 13 June 2024

According to recently released 2021 Census information the East of England remains the most popular area for oil heating systems, almost 200,000 oil heating systems are in use in this area closely followed by the Southwest with again almost 200,000 oil fired properties. Surprisingly there are more oil boilers in the Southeast of England than in Wales with both regions still with over 100,000 homes heated using oil. There are over 1 million rural homes in England built before 1919, with less than 10% of these properties with an EPC rating “C” or higher. Rural areas have a relatively low number of EPC “C” or above rated homes within the housing stock, even those built up to 2011 when compared to their urban equivalents! In these homes high energy on demand heating systems is vital to ensure the health and wellbeing of the residents. Renewable heating systems such as HVO boilers are likely to be a key future option for heating for many of these homes as insulation measures, although extremely important in themselves to reduce fuel poverty and carbon emissions, may be ineffective or financially impractical to the extent required for low energy continuous heating systems such as low temperature heat pumps.
