Maintain your boiler
Financial Benefits of Oil Boiler Services in Tetbury
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 GL8 postcode area of Tetbury, including Doughton, Westonbirt and Avening 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 Tetbury 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 Tetbury.
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 Tetbury. 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 Tetbury 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 Tetbury home ensures the ongoing efficiency of your oil boiler and the safety of all those in your household.

Peace of mind
Oil Boiler Safety for Tenants in Tetbury
If you’re the landlord of a rental property with an oil-fired boiler in Tetbury or local villages you are not legally required to have the boiler periodically serviced and maintained, unlike the law applying to gas boilers. However, as a landlord, though, 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 Tetbury and elsewhere in the UK must be safe for the purpose, and you could be found criminally negligent if something befalls your tenant due to a neglected oil boiler.
Prestige Heating and Electrical services therefore recommend that all Landlords schedule an annual boiler service and safety check by one of our OFTEC registered engineers. As local specialists in oil boilers in Tetbury 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 Tetbury 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.
