Washing Machine / Dishwasher Installation: In most cases, suppliers can install washing machines. However, if pipes need extending or there are other complications, a plumber is often required.

Oil Tank Water Removal: Rainwater and condensation can accumulate in your oil tank, resulting in a significant buildup of water. If left unaddressed, this can reach the outlet of the tank and cause your boiler to stop working. I can check for and remove any water to ensure that your boiler operates smoothly without any water-related issues.

Heating System Noise: System noise can be one of the most irritating issues in a heating system. Numerous factors can cause noise, but I can guarantee to identify the root cause and resolve any problems your central heating system might have.


Why is it important to check for harmful water in your oil tank?

Many people are unaware that water can accumulate in their oil tank, whether from condensation or rainwater entering through faulty or damaged seals, tank openings, or even rusting and perforations in the tank body. This water can cause major issues with your oil boiler, especially during very cold weather when it freezes and blocks your fuel supply. Additionally, water in your fuel is a leading cause of oil pump failure, which can result in costly breakdowns.

Is an annual boiler service recommended?

Yes, it is highly recommended to have your oil boiler serviced annually by an OFTEC-registered technician. This will prevent simple faults like water in your fuel from causing damage to your boiler and potentially costly part replacements. During a service, key components such as the oil filter, pump, nozzle, and photocell are inspected and serviced. Afterwards, you will receive an OFTEC certificate to confirm that your boiler meets the required standards.
