Maintain your boiler
The Cost of Neglecting Your Oil Boiler
Just like gas boilers, we recommend that oil boilers in Lambourn home be serviced once a year. You may think this is an unnecessary investment, but neglecting your oil boiler service could actually cost you more in the long run and seriously diminish the lifespan of your oil boiler.
Prestige Heating and Electrical Services’ professional oil boiler engineers serve many areas of the RG17 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.
We have seen first-hand the consequences of failing to regularly service your oil boiler in Lambourn and the outlying villages including, Eastbury, Baydon and Aldbourne. Mainly 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.
Besides impacting on the reliability and energy efficiency of your oil boiler, failing to have an annual oil boiler service in Lambourn can be a safety risk as if your boiler is not combusting properly it could be emitting toxic carbon monoxide.
