As the cold weather approaches there may be some improvements you can make to your existing system that can significantly improve its energy efficiency.
Regular servicing maximises the performance of your boiler and minimises the risk of breakdown. When your oil heating system is operating at peak performance, you will benefit from reduced fuel bills and save on costly call out fees. During a service, we always use combustion efficiency testing equipment to ensure we set your boiler to operate at maximum efficiency. A service is normally required every year, but for a few appliances, six monthly attention is recommended by the manufacturer, check your owner’s manual and if you are not sure, just ask us and we will let you know.
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.
