How often should you service an oil boiler?
Oil boiler manufacturers recommend that you have an annual oil boiler service, in addition to monitoring its performance throughout the year so that it continues to operate safely and efficiently.

Reduce oil heating bills with heating controls
Installing heating controls throughout your home and using them efficiently can cut your oil heating cost by between 15% – 20%. We recommend considering installing controls to ensure a more efficiently heated home and to prevent energy waste.
If you have existing heating control systems installed, it is advisable to ensure that they are maintained regularly. Some older controls may not be as productive as more modern ones.
If you need assistance, we can advise you on the best controls for your home or place of work.
