Maintain your boiler
Neglecting Your Oil Boiler Service
All boilers whether they are oil or gas boilers need servicing yearly, which is why we send reminders out to all of our clients who have oil boilers in Fairford that their boiler needs to be serviced once a year. You may think this is an avoidable expense, but neglecting your oil boiler service could actually cost you more in the long run and reduce the lifespan of your oil boiler.
Our professional oil boiler engineers at Prestige Heating and Electrical Services’ service oil boilers in many areas of the GL7 postcode area and are members of OFTEC (the Oil Firing Technical Association) – a competent persons scheme which approves technicians qualified to install and maintain oil boilers and heating systems.
There are consequences of failing to regularly service your oil boiler in Fairford or the outlying villages including, Whelford, Meysey Hampton and Lechlade. Primarily it comes down to your oil boiler failing to run optimally, costing you more in fuel bills, and it also increases the likelihood of a boiler breakdown meaning you might have to buy a replacement oil boiler or spend out for costly oil boiler repairs.
Not having an annual oil boiler service not only can affect the reliability and energy efficiency of your oil boiler, but failing to have an annual oil boiler service in Fairford can be a safety risk: If your boiler is not combusting properly it could be emitting toxic carbon monoxide, which is dangerous.
How we can help
