General Information

Everyone is looking to save money on the provision of heating and hot water in their homes.

Insulation in the roof space and draught proofing should be your first thought with the need to keep in the heat you have paid for. An open fire place can sometimes be the greatest reason for heat loss.

The second most effective thing you can do is to make the most of the fuel you buy.

Older standard efficiency boilers have a high flue gas temperature loss to atmosphere. Although with a relatively good efficiency in their day, no longer give the performance required compared to a condensing boiler with a much lower flue gas temperature due to a secondary heat exchanger which recovers the latent heat.

Effective controls directing heat only to where it is needed with thermostatic interlocks to prevent boiler cycling will also add to overall efficiency.

These improvements alone will give greater payback for money spent than many renewable solutions available to date without subsidy.

Being a company that get to work on a few boilers throughout a year, we do know a thing or two about different boiler manufactures and their equipment. Anything mechanical of course will break down especially if not regularly maintained.

We at Oil Burner Service therefore will always endorse quality and reliability promoting manufactures with a continual research and development policy.

A preferred boiler manufacturer would be Grant Uk Ltd who produce a full range of highly efficient heating products from the award winning Vortex range of oil-fired condensing boilers to the latest renewable products, including Solar Thermal, Solar PV, Air Source Heat Pumps, Weather Compensation Controls and Hot Water Storage Cylinders.

Changing your boiler can be a daunting idea, not with Oil Burner Service, you could change your old inefficient boiler to an energy efficient 'A' rated condensing boiler, with little or no fuss ensuring you save money on your heating and hot water bills.

Servicing of boiler

Servicing your equipment

As with all things mechanical time, wear and tear will take its toll on your equipment.

A regular service will help to ensure many potential faults are located and dealt with before an untimely breakdown occurs.

Of course there are large benefits in the cleaning of heat exchangers thus maximising the effective heat transfer to the system water. Also the adjusting and setting up of your equipment to its most efficient has the potential to save fuel throughout the entire year.

An inspection of your oil tank installation will also be undertaken with advice on any remedial work if required.

Handling breakdowns

Breakdown of your equipment

If your equipment breaks down you will find that a call to us will generally be answered throughout the day by Anne in a very busy office.

Telephone calls are also monitored through the evening and weekends with engineers on standby.

Because of our team of trained and experienced engineers, along with extensive well stocked store of parts and spares, breakdowns are generally diagnosed and dealt with on the same day.

Example of oil tank

Oil tank upgrade or replacement

If you require a new tank or remedial work to your fuel storage installation then we can help.

Sometimes all that is required to upgrade an installation is base enlargement, fire protection or new outlet equipment.
