Oil Boiler Replacement

Why you should upgrade your Oil Boiler?

Upgrading to a Condensing Oil Boiler can result in significant savings not just financial but in CO² emissions as well.

Even the best oil boilers require replacement approximately every 15 years. Even if you have had your boiler regularly serviced it will still undergo general wear as with any equipment with moving parts. Also within its lifetime there will have been many engineering improvements and updates which in general help make boilers run more efficiently.

Grants are also available to help with insulation. Grants towards the cost of new boilers  and insulation are available from Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).  The Better Energy scheme is available to any owner of a dwelling built before 2006.

Why Do You Need to Service Your Oil Boiler?

Although boiler servicing is often seen as an 'unnecessary expense', having your boiler serviced regularly is important for three key reasons:

Safety:  If your boiler is not combusting properly it could be giving off lethal carbon monoxide fumes. During your service an engineer will check the boiler for these leaks, to make sure that it is safe.

Reliability:  Un-serviced boilers are more likely to breakdown or develop problems. By regularly servicing your boiler, you will reduce the chance of expensive maintenance issues.

Efficiency: If oil boilers are not serviced annually they can “soot-up”. This means that your boiler will be less efficient, as it will need to use more fuel to maintain a regular temperature. During the service an engineer will clean out the soot, making your boiler more efficient and cost-effective.

What Is Included in an Oil Boiler Service?

During your service, Our engineer will check that your boiler is in good working condition, as well as testing the safety and efficiency of your system. Oil boiler servicing usually takes around one hour, during this time the engineer will:

Visually inspect the boiler and all associated pipes or areas (including your oil tank and supply pipe), to make sure that they comply with current safety regulations.

  • Inspect and clean out the flue.
  • Replace or clean the oil filters and oil nozzle.
  • Check for water in your oil tank.
  • Check combustion.
  • Check the supply pipe for any signs of leakage.
  • Remove the boiler casing and clean internal components (like the heat exchanger and burner).
  • Test all safety systems to make sure that they are functioning correctly (this includes any thermostats, pressure relief valves and burner lockout devices).
  • Ask if you have experienced any issues with the boiler.
  • Turn the boiler on to check that it is working correctly.
