An annual boiler safety check and boiler service, carried out by a professional service engineer ensures that your boiler is functioning properly.  Regular servicing of your boiler is important as it ensures that the boiler is working to the specifications designed by the boiler manufacturer. This will help prolong the life of the boiler as well as reduce the risk of faults and expensive repairs down the line.

The efficiency of an oil boiler deteriorates with use. There are several reasons for this, the key ones being:


  • Soot production from the combustion process coats the heat exchanger surfaces.

  • The critical air-to-fuel combustion ratio changes due to gradual component wear.

A boiler service will remove any sooting and, by adjustment, will re-establish the optimum combustion conditions. Optimising operating efficiency is paramount in these days of rising fuel costs and global warming.


Just like cars, boilers can operate for many years without servicing but generally with fuel consumption penalties, undermined reliability and even safety implications.


Most boiler manufacturers recommend an annual service, primarily on the grounds of safety but also to ensure reliability. On efficiency grounds it is well worth servicing oil boilers annually because the soot build-up can significantly increase oil consumption.


We carry out all areas of work on oil boilers from installation and commissioning to servicing and repairs. All our work is carried out by a Blueflame certified boiler technician using a modern flue gas analyser.
