Maintain your boiler
Neglecting Your Oil Boiler Is Not Cost Effective
It is recommended that if you have an oil boiler in your South Marston 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 SN3 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 South Marston and the outlying villages including, Stratton, Kingsdown and Stanton Fitzwarren 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 South Marston can be a safety risk: If your boiler is not combusting properly it could be emitting toxic carbon monoxide.
