Our engineers are highly trained and are certified to fit, commission and service your Oil Boiler and tank. For problems with your existing Oil boiler, tank or oil lines give the office a call to arrange an appointment for an Oftec engineer to attend.
Designed to be strong and long lasting, oil fired appliances are some of the most efficient you can get. There’s a huge choice of floor standing or wall mounted boilers for installation inside and outside domestic premises.
All oil appliance installations should be serviced annually to ensure safety and correct operation. The annual service should include checking the oil tank and associated pipework.
Older oil boilers are typically around 60-70% efficient. Modern high efficiency condensing boilers are normally more than 90% efficient and are available as regular, system and combination boilers. Installing a condensing boiler is an excellent way to reduce running costs compared with non-condensing boilers and a fuel saving of up to 30% can be expected. In all regions, condensing boilers are now the preferred method of meeting building regulations.
Oil boilers have an excellent safety record. However, it’s worth fitting an audible carbon monoxide alarm as a precaution, particularly when open flued appliances are used.
As with any fossil fuel burning appliance, poor or inadequate servicing can cause the generation of carbon monoxide. Therefore, it is absolutely vital that your oil boiler is checked and serviced at least annually.
Carbon monoxide is a highly toxic poisonous gas. It is odourless, colourless and tasteless and therefore difficult to detect.
Some symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are:
