Oil fired boilers are a great way to save money on your residential heating bills. With high efficiency ratings of at least 85%, these boilers may be one of the most efficient ways to heat your home.
As the leader in home heating equipment, U.S. Boiler Company manufactures several oil-fired boiler solutions, including the award-winning MPO-IQ™ 3-pass high efficiency oil boiler, and MegaSteam™, the most efficient cast iron residential oil-fired steam boiler in the world.
MPO-IQ™ – One of U.S. Boiler Company’s latest innovations is the MPO-IQ™ boiler. It features a modern design, and is reliable, durable and easy to use. With a rating of 87% AFUE, the MPO-IQ™ is the most efficient oil-fired boiler in its class.
At its heart of an MPO-IQ oil boiler is an advanced 3-pass cast iron heat exchanger and a well-insulated powder-coated steel jacket. This is an optimal replacement boiler for homes with existing chimneys, but it offers a direct vent option when a chimney is not available.
The MPO-IQ’s exclusive Control System is also best in class. It simplifies boiler operation by combining all the usual boiler safety controls, including ignition, into a central control module. An optional LCD touchscreen displays all boiler settings, diagnostics, and troubleshooting, making it extremely easy to use. Other IQ Control System options can help homeowners save an additional 15-20% annually on energy costs.
MegaSteam™ – A U.S. Boiler exclusive, MegaSteam™ is known as the best oil-fired steam boiler on the market. It achieves 86% AFUE efficiency with a 3-pass cast iron heat exchanger – the only one of its kind in the world.
If steam boilers seem inefficient because they produce steam with a high moisture content, the advanced engineering that is built into MegaSteam™ will change your mind. This boiler produces steam which is 99% dry, an important advantage in producing efficient steam heat in virtually any application.
We are so confident in this boiler that we give MegaSteam™ the best warranty in its class – a 10-year warranty on the heat exchanger and the industry’s only 5-year warranty on water side corrosion.
V8H™ – The V8H™ is so versatile that it adapts to hot water or steam heat applications. Its cast iron heat exchanger features a surface area that is as much as 40% larger than many competitive models. This means that the boiler is able to heat up more quickly, with a faster transfer of heat and greater efficiency.
V8H™ is rated at 85% AFUE and has been an industry benchmark for cast iron oil-fired boilers for years. In water versions of the boiler, the new Intelligent Oil Boiler Control continuously monitors all aspects of boiler operation, delivering increased efficiency and impressive energy savings.
You will find that most new oil boilers have AFUE ratings between 80% and 87%, while gas boilers have higher ratings of 89% to 98%. Although gas boilers are often more efficient than oil boilers, they are also typically 10% to 25% more expensive than their gas counterparts.
