Maintain your boiler
Neglecting Your Oil Boiler Is Not Cost Effective
It is recommended that if you have an oil boiler in your Ogbourne St George 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 Ogbourne St George and the outlying villages including, Aldbourne, Marlborough and Chiseldon 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 Ogbourne St George can be a safety risk: If your boiler is not combusting properly it could be emitting toxic carbon monoxide.
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 Ogbourne St George. 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 Ogbourne St George 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 Ogbourne St George home ensures the continued efficient performance of your oil boiler and the safety of all those in your household.

Rental Properties with Oil Boilers in Ogbourne St George
Are you a landlord of a property with an oil-fired boiler in Ogbourne St George? 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 Ogbourne St George 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.
