Maintenance

It is recommended that you service your gas boiler annually to keep it operating safely and at peak efficiency. Regular servicing also ensures your warranty stays valid and keeps you safe. 

Having an oil fired boiler serviced regularly can keep it operating at its most efficient. This reduces fuel bills and saves money on costly call-out fees for unexpected breakdowns. OFTEC recommends that oil fired appliances and equipment are serviced at least once a year or as recommended by the manufacturer.

There are many reasons why the efficiency of an oil fired boiler could be reduced, for example: 

  • Excessive smoke and partially burnt fuel deposits can cause soot to form within the boiler's heat exchanger, restricting the amount of heat that can be transferred into the heating system water. The cleaner the heat exchanger, the more efficient the boiler will be. 
  • Oil nozzles regulate how much oil passes through the burner. The nozzles are consumable items that wear over time, affecting combustion and lowering boiler efficiency. If they are not replaced, they could cause “sooting up” of the heat exchanger due to too much fuel passing through the burner.

Manufacturers of unvented water heaters recommend that you have your boiler serviced once each year, and many home insurance policies require this. Note that failure to ensure that your hot water heater and pipework are inspected and maintained each year can result in them refusing any claims to cover damage if something happens. 

Annual maintenance will help to keep the water heater safe and in line with the requirements of the G3 building regulations relating to hot water systems. 

Remember that, depending on the use of the property, there could be a legal requirement for the system to be serviced, tested and certified on an ongoing basis.
