Gas Central Heating Disadvantages & Oil Heating System Issues

Gas fires are the most inefficient way of heating. To get 1kW of heat from a typical fire you need to burn 2.5 to 3kW of gas. With a typical gas price of 3p this equates to 9p per kWH with huge waste through chimneys or flue.

The unsightly surface mounted pipes can improve the efficiency of your central heating as it loses heat within the room but with Fischer heaters there are no unsightly pipes or expensive boiler maintenance.

We do not have a single thermostat in the ground floor of your home (generally situated half way up the wall) measuring the temperature for the whole house. Instead, we provide a thermostat on the wall in each room giving you total control of the heat output for each room, thereby enabling you to heat the rooms you want when you want and saving money by eliminating wastage.

Rising Fuel Prices

Gas central heating Disadvantages and oil filled system issues

Rising fuel prices make it difficult to continue using systems where the boiler pumps hot water through the entire house just to feed 1 or 2 radiators. You may recognise these gas central heating disadvantages from your own experience.

Customers using brutane / propane gas cylinders or oil for their central heating have difficulty paying the high energy bills that come from keeping the boiler going for long periods. These types of heating systems are more expensive to run and maintain compared to systems connected to mains gas.

Fischer heaters offer all the benefits of storage with 100% heat transfer into the room without annual servicing. Our heaters are safe, clean and provide an all-round comfort heat from floor to ceiling. In the whole life span of our system, Fischer storage heaters cost less than gas and oil. They are the perfect solution that eliminates the disadvantages of gas central heating.
