Oil fired boilers can be purchased online from home equipment and appliance retailers such as SupplyHouse.com, as well as from auction sites such as eBay. Some manufacturers, such as Weil-McLain, allow users to search for local distributors of specific models from the company's website.
Users searching for oil fired boilers on SupplyHouse.com can narrow results by both brand and product line per manufacturer. When a user views a line of oil burners, these listings can also be filtered by price range, efficiency level and overall system output. Each listing features a picture of the boiler and a description of its features and ideal usage environment. Listings also contain pricing information, shipping details and the number currently in stock.
The Weil-McLain website offers users the ability to read detailed information about each model of oil burner that the company manufactures directly through its website. Each unit's listing contains a link to a locator tool that allows the user to see the nearest retailer that carries the specific model.
Listings on eBay contain varying amounts of detail and quality, as the site places no minimum requirements for product descriptions. Users have the option to contact sellers with specific questions prior to making a purchase, such as through email or a support phone number.
