It is important, not only to comply with legal requirements, but having invested in equipment that should serve a good number of years, to remember the importance of regular maintenance.
Any gas fired apparatus should have regular maintenance carried out by qualified and certified personnel to ensure the best running conditions and reliability of the plant. All commercial gas appliances need to be safety checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer annually.
Our experienced engineers are also OFTEC qualified to work on oil fired boilers. Having an oil-fired boiler serviced regularly can keep it operating at its most efficient. This reduces fuel bills and saves money on costly call-out fees for unexpected breakdowns. OFTEC recommends that oil fired appliances and equipment are serviced at least once a year or as recommended by the manufacturer.
We can tailor specific maintenance packages to suit our customers considering the criticality, age and condition of the plant.
Importance of Regular Service:
Appliances should be inspected, cleaned and components replaced as required when the boiler is being serviced. If your boiler is not serviced annually, it is at higher risk of breaking down and costing you more money.
Cleaning the boiler provides a chance to look for other tell-tale signs that parts of the boiler may need replacing and an opportunity to inspect the combustion chamber for the condition of the material and welds. Old steel heat exchangers will often leave rust marks, which can give a warning that the boiler will soon need to be replaced. This approach can limit the possibility of water damage occurring and enables replacement work to be planned rather than having the inconvenience of trying to arrange a boiler replacement at short notice when a heat exchanger unexpectedly fails.
Long term damage can also occur if the boiler is not serviced regularly. During the combustion process, deposits will build up on the internal surfaces of the heat exchanger and the baffles which can decrease boiler efficiency.
