Maintain your boiler
Neglecting Your Oil Boiler Is Not Cost Effective
It is recommended that if you have an oil boiler in your Marlborough home that it is serviced annually. You may think this is an unnecessary cost, but neglecting your oil boiler service may actually cost you more in the long run by not running efficiently and seriously diminishing the lifespan of your oil boiler.
Prestige Heating and Electrical Services’ professional boiler engineers work in many areas of the SN8 postcode area and are members of OFTEC (the Oil Firing Technical Association) – a competent persons scheme which approves oil engineers qualified to install and maintain oil boilers and heating systems.
Unfortunately, we regularly see the consequences of people failing to regularly service their oil boiler. We advise our clients in Marlborough and the outlying villages including, Ogbourne, Rockley, Axford and Ramsbury that not having your oil boiler serviced each year may make the oil boiler fail 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 effecting the reliability and energy efficiency of your oil boiler, not having an annual oil boiler service in Marlborough can be a safety risk: If your boiler is not combusting properly it could be emitting toxic carbon monoxide.
How we can help
Oil Boiler Servicing
Prestige Services is extremely safety conscious, which is one more reason why we strongly recommend you not to neglect having your oil-fired boiler serviced annually in Marlborough. 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 registered and highly trained Marlborough 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. After the inspection and oil 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 Marlborough home ensures the ongoing efficiency of your oil boiler and the safety of all those in your household.
