Looking for an Oil Boiler Service in Bedfordshire?
Around a third of properties in Bedfordshire are ‘non-gas households’. Many remote properties don’t get gas piped into their homes because they’re not on the gas grid. There are over 4 million homes that use alternatives to gas across the UK, and the most popular alternative to gas-fired central heating is an oil boiler.
What’s Different About Oil Fired Central Heating?
The main difference lies in the fuel delivery. Instead of having gas piped directly into your home, oil has to be delivered by road. Once delivered, you’ll need to store the fuel in a tank on your property. There are two kinds of oil boiler; heat only, and combination condensing boiler. A combination boiler has a storage tank to supply your hot water.
Servicing and Maintaining Your Oil Boiler
A carefully maintained oil boiler is an excellent investment, and can last well over a decade. Regular servicing is crucial, however, as soot can build up in the heat exchanger. This restricts the efficiency of your system, making your heating more expensive. The message from GPS Plumbing & Heating engineers is always that a regularly serviced oil boiler costs you less money in the long run.
Oil Boiler Servicing in Bedfordshire
An oil boiler service should always be carried out by professional heating engineers, who have experience with oil-fired systems. They will normally comprise:
- Visual inspection of the water tank and storage pipes
- Filter elements cleaned/replaced
- Fittings checked for oil leaks
- Combustion chamber inspection
- Inspection of deposits in heat exchanger
- Checking baffles and replacing if necessary
