How often should I service my boiler?

It is recommended annually for an oil boiler and six monthly for Agas/Rayburns. Regularly serviced boilers operate more efficiently and therefore use less oil. At today's high prices an inefficient boiler will be costing you ££££'s more to run.

What is involved in a service?

  • Clean the burner and components
  • Check burner/ inspect oil line
  • Check the flue-ways & heat exchanger
  • New nozzle
  • Clean / check heat exchanger and baffles
  • Clean & adjust the ignition components
  • Clean flame supervision components
  • Check all disturbed connections
  • Check all boiler seals & joints
  • Check Fire Valve
  • Check there are no obvious signs of damage to the wiring
  • Re-set the burner operating pressure to that on the data label/plate
  • Carry out combustion analysis and set up boiler for safe and efficient running
  • Check boiler safety devices
  • Check Oil tank and supply.
