Servicing and Maintenance

Just as regular servicing maximises the performance of your car and minimises the risk of breakdown, so it will keep your oil heating system operating at peak performance, reduce fuel bills and save on costly call out fees. Servicing work requires the use of combustion efficiency testing equipment so is best carried out by a skilled OFTEC registered technician. Service is normally required every year, but for a few appliances, six monthly attention is recommended by the manufacturer.

As well as the boiler itself, your heating system controls need to be regularly checked for correct operation and this should form part of the annual service. It is also important that your oil storage tank is inspected annually.
