Our oil boilers have been working really hard this Winter, helping to keep our homes warm and cosy during weeks of cold and snowy conditions.
With signs of Spring on its way, now is a good time to book a boiler service to make sure that everything is working correctly.
Why should I have my boiler serviced?
Having your boiler serviced can help it to run more efficiently, and therefore saving you money on your heating oil. It can also help you avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown when you need it most during cold weather.
Like a car, a boiler needs regular maintenance and servicing to make sure that it is working efficiently and safely.
We strongly recommend that you use an OFTEC registered technician – an industry standard that gives you peace of mind that your boiler is being given the best care by a professional expert.
What does a boiler service involve?
A typical boiler service will involve an engineer visiting your home to examine your boiler to check if it is working correctly, safely, and efficiently. They will want to check the boiler itself, the tank, connecting pipes, and radiators, so you’ll need to make sure that these are accessible.
In addition, they will be looking for:
- Carbon Monoxide leaks – a deadly threat to anyone with a boiler
- Worn out components – including oil nozzles and ignition electrodes
- Build-up of soot and residues – restricting the flow of oil or fumes
Once your boiler has been serviced, the engineer will discuss any issues with you, provide you with a service form (showing the work undertaken), and will then require payment.
