How Does Oil Central Heating Work?
Oil fired central heating is usually used in ‘wet’ heating systems when an oil fired boiler heats water that will then provide central heating through the radiators which are placed around your home. The oil will be delivered by truck and will then be stored in a tank. Boilers must have a minimum seasonal efficiency value of 86% according to building regulations.
Advantages Of Oil Central Heating Boilers
Increased Efficiency – A boiler service can improve boiler efficiency by up to 15% which results in a greener home and reduced energy bills.
Increased Reliability – Regular boiler servicing results in a decreased chance of breakdown which leads to more convenient life for you.
Convenient Servicing – Instead of waiting for your boiler to break down, having your boiler serviced regularly means you can choose a time that is convenient for you.
Oil Boiler Services
It is highly recommended that you get your boiler serviced at least once a year. Having your boiler serviced often guarantees that your heating system will be running smoothly, efficiently and will also make sure that no oil will go to waste when it is in operation. An oil boiler service will ensure that any small problems are dealt with which will prevent expensive repairs being made in the future. The main things that are checked during a boiler service include inspections of the boilers pipework, cleaned and reassembled. Finally, the oil boiler will be given a combustion test which will ensure that it is in proper working order.
Although not strictly a legal requirement as yet, Eric Collier would suggest that you get your gas or oil appliances serviced regularly by a Gas Safe or Oftec registered engineer. With the introduction of the Home Buyers pack you need to show that you are doing the appropriate maintenance to your oil appliances, this will be vital if you plan on selling your home at a later date.
