Why should I consider a hybrid boiler arrangement?
Are you looking for the next level in providing an efficient and cost-effective solution for heating your business or commercial space? Consider installing a hybrid boiler arrangement. This type of system comprises of an electric boiler as the lead unit, supported by a supplementary oil or gas unit, with the secondary unit being oil-fired in most instances. By combining the benefits of electric and oil or gas heating, hybrid boiler arrangements offer several advantages over traditional boiler configurations.
Reduced carbon footprint
Hybrid boilers are an excellent solution for those who want to reduce their carbon footprint. The electric boiler acts as the primary source of heat, with the oil or gas unit serving as the secondary source. Because the electric boiler provides the majority of the required duty, there is a significantly reduced environmental impact – and this is becoming a more important factor for consideration as time passes.
Better energy efficiency
Hybrid boiler packages offer better energy efficiency than traditional boilers. By combining an electric boiler with an accompanying oil or gas unit, you can take advantage of the benefits of both fuel types. Electric boilers are known for their high efficiency, while oil and gas units generally offer a higher heat output. This means that a hybrid boiler arrangement can deliver the required capacity more efficiently than a traditional boiler operating independently.
Lower running costs
Hybrid boilers offer lower running costs than traditional boilers. The electric boiler is the principal source of heat, and this is particularly useful for clients who are able to capitalise on lower electricity prices outside of peak hours. The oil or gas unit is only used when additional heat is required, which means you save money on fuel costs. In fact, hybrid boilers that incorporate both electric and oil units are more bespoke and can save you in excess of 60% in fuel duty – giving a truly substantial cost reduction.
As an example, we can provide up to 380kW of duty in a hybrid package that combines our industry-leading 80kW electric boiler and a 300kW oil-fired boiler. This will sufficiently accommodate a requirement on this scale and exceed expectations, while simultaneously delivering a more cost-effective option than simply using oil only.
We are proud to be leading the way and are currently the only specialist team offering this type of dual system, but it is becoming increasingly common for clients to request this set-up.
