Unfortunately, no matter how well cared for your boiler might be, sometimes things just happen. There are a few problems you might encounter with an oil boiler including water and debris being carried from the tank to the boiler causing the boiler to lock out, water freezing in the oil line or clogged nozzles. You may also find soot deposits which can mean paying out for replacement parts. When you sign up for boiler servicing, or even one-off maintenance visits, our technicians will take a look at all of these things and give your boiler a good clean.
