Protection for boiler trouble
Unfortunately, no matter how much you care for your boiler, issues can arise occasionally. There are a few problems you might encounter with an oil boiler. For example, water and debris could travel from the tank to the boiler causing the boiler to lock out. Additionally, water can freeze in the oil line. You may also find soot deposits which can mean paying out for replacement parts.
Our technicians will identify these issues and give your boiler a good clean. All you have to do is sign up for boiler servicing with us or book a one-off maintenance visit.
