Maintain your boiler
Financial Benefits of Oil Boiler Services in Stroud
For many years the family run firm of Prestige Heating and Electrical Services have been expertly and efficiently caring for oil-fired boilers in homes in and around the GL5 postcode area of Stroud, including Painswick, Rodborough and Minchinhampton and all surrounding areas.
Once you have an oil boiler and heating system installed it is essential to keep it regularly serviced by professional OFTEC registered engineers, like those at Prestige.
The main benefits of an annual oil boiler service in Stroud and the surrounding villages are financial. It’s worth investing in the relatively minor cost of a service once a year because a clean, well-maintained boiler will keep running at optimal fuel efficiency, saving you money on your fuel bill.
During an oil boiler service we can also pick up any potential problems and minor faults, preventing these from evolving into more complicated problems that will be more costly to resolve, or perhaps even lead to total breakdown of your boiler in Stroud.
How we can help
Oil Boiler Servicing in Stroud
During an oil boiler service our qualified engineers visually inspect the boiler, the flue, piping and your oil tank to make sure they comply with safety regulations. They will replace the oil boiler nozzle, check the boiler combustion and make sure there are no leaks in the supply pipe.
We also remove the boiler casing and clean components that require it (especially the heat exchanger and the burner), and test all the safety devices.
Once our heating engineers in Stroud have completed the oil boiler service they will issue with a comprehensive Service record of everything they have checked, tested and inspected, and advise you of any faults or potential problems.
We leave our work area spick and span, and try to disrupt your household as little as possible when we carry out an oil boiler service. Our company ethos is to treat our customers as we would wish to be treated ourselves.
We cover the majority of the Stroud postcode areas, including GL5 as well as the local villages.
We make an appointment at your convenience for our engineers to visit.

Peace of mind
Rental Properties with Oil Boilers in Stroud
Are you a landlord of a property with an oil-fired boiler in Stroud? 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 Stroud 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. As we are local specialists in oil boilers in Stroud we are ideally placed to make sure that a professional service and boiler safety check is carried out to comply with BS 5410: Part 1, which requires oil fired appliances and equipment to be serviced periodically in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Good maintenance of oil boilers in let properties in Stroud brings peace of mind for both landlords and tenants.
Prestige Heating and Electrical Services have a qualified team of OFTEC registered engineers to undertake professional servicing of oil-fired boilers and heating systems. We recommend that services are carried out once a year.
