Maintain your boiler
Economic Benefits of Oil Boiler Services in Carterton
For many years the family run firm of Prestige Heating and Electrical Services have been proficiently and professionally caring for oil-fired boilers in homes in and around the OX18 postcode area of Carterton, including Shilton, Brize Norton and Alvescot and all local areas.
Once you have an oil boiler and heating system installed it is important to keep it regularly serviced by professional OFTEC registered engineers, like those at Prestige.
The main benefits of an annual oil boiler service in Carterton and the surrounding villages are financial. It’s worth spending the relatively minor cost of a service once a year as a clean, well-maintained oil boiler will keep running at optimal fuel efficiency, saving you money on your oil fuel bill.
During an oil boiler service we can also pick up any potential problems and minor faults, preventing these from developing into more complicated problems that would be more costly to resolve, or perhaps even lead to a total breakdown of your boiler in Carterton.
How we can help
What is Involved in an Oil Boiler Service?
Prestige Services is extremely safety conscious, which is another reason why we urge you not to neglect having your oil fired boiler regularly serviced in Carterton. Faulty, badly maintained boilers can emit poisonous carbon monoxide without you realising it, because it is odourless, colourless and tasteless.
One of the things our highly trained Carterton boiler engineers check thoroughly when servicing your oil boiler is the safety devices built in to the appliance. We also clean the boiler heat exchanger, check the flue, fuel supply pipe and the oil storage tank, as well as replacing the oil nozzle. Finally, we perform a full combustion test and clear up the work space so it is spick and span. After the inspection and service is complete we’ll give you a full written Service report of the work we’ve done, and recommend any repairs if there are any.
A full oil boiler service in your Carterton home ensures the continued efficient performance of your oil boiler and the safety of all those in your household.

Peace of mind
Rental Properties with Oil Boilers in Carterton
Are you a landlord of a property with an oil fired boiler in Carterton? It is not currently a legal requirement to have an oil boiler periodically serviced and maintained at a rental property, unlike the law applying to gas boilers. However, as a landlord, you have a responsibility to follow best practice when it comes to ensuring the safety of your tenants. The Consumer Protection Act 1987 states that rented properties in Carterton and elsewhere in the UK must be safe for the purpose, and you could be found criminally negligent if something happens to your tenant due to a oil boiler that has been neglected and un-serviced.
Prestige Heating and Electrical services strongly recommend that landlords arrange annual boiler servicing and safety check by an OFTEC registered engineer as are our engineers at Prestige. As we are local specialists in oil boilers in Carterton we are ideally placed to make sure that a professional service and boiler safety check is carried out to comply with BS 5410: Part 1, which requires oil fired appliances and equipment to be serviced periodically in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Good maintenance of oil boilers in let properties in Carterton brings peace of mind for both landlords and tenants.
Prestige Heating and Electrical Services have a qualified team of OFTEC registered engineers to undertake professional servicing of oil-fired boilers and heating systems. We recommend that services are carried out once a year.
