Oil Boiler Service

Heating engineer leaving documentation with customer

AddHeat are oil boiler service & repair experts based in Cheadle, Stockport, covering Cheshire and Manchester too.

We’re experts in oil fired boilers and are OFTEC registered. Oil boilers require servicing & maintenance, giving your oil boiler a service once a year helps it to stay free of breakdowns and operate efficiently, saving you money in the long run.

What Does an Oil Boiler Service Cost?

Our OFTEC Oil Boiler Service costs £99 + VAT.

Do Oil Boilers Need Servicing?

If an oil boiler isn’t serviced regularly, long term damage can occur due to a build-up of residue on the baffles which are an internal part of an oil boiler (baffles are designed to support tube bundles, increase maximum efficiency and direct the flow of fluids through the boiler).

During the oil boiler combustion process the baffles will become clogged as deposits build up on the internal surfaces of the boiler – these can then decrease boiler efficiency. If this is left for years it can sometimes be impossible to remove the baffles without destroying them. Replacement baffles can be costly, therefore regularly servicing your boiler can save you money in the long run.

If your boiler is not serviced annually, it is at higher risk of breaking down and costing you more money.

When servicing your oil boiler our oil heating engineers will also have be able to check for any parts of the boiler which may need replacing. An early warning of boiler parts wearing gives you the chance to replace them early and avoid costly boiler breakdowns – or worse – for example, a boiler replacement at short notice when a heat exchanger unexpectedly fails.

The boiler service will take about 40 minutes.

We are OFTEC Registered

What is a boiler service?

A boiler service is a manual inspection conducted by a plumber or engineer. They will inspect your boiler for any potential faults or issues and service particular parts within it, helping to catch any problems before they result in a major break down or could pose a potential safety risk.
