Oil Boiler Service
Glen Fuels Annual Oil Boiler Service
Glen Fuels recommends an annual oil boiler service for home heating:
- Reduces the amount of oil used to heat water and radiators, lowering your overall oil bill.
- Saves money on repairs.
- Protects the health and safety of your family.
Our head servicing technician will carry out a boiler safety check and boiler service at the same time.
Just as your car needs to be serviced regularly, your oil boiler requires the same attention once a year. Failure to service the oil boiler can result in excessively high and costly fuel consumption, safety breaches and poor reliability.
An Annual Requirement:
- Ensures the boiler is working to the specifications designed by the manufacturer.
- Helps to prolong the life of the oil boiler.
- Reduces the risk of faults that endanger lives.
- Reduces the risk of expensive repairs.
- Ensures the oil boiler burns less fuel and delivers more heat, saving you money.
The Glen Fuels Checklist:
- Set boiler controls.
- Check flue integrity.
- Check fire safety valves (install valves if not already in place).
- Check oil tank location and condition.
- Replace parts, if necessary.
- Install a new oil tank, if necessary.
- Install a new boiler, if necessary.
- Upgrade an old heating system to renewable energy, if requested.
