Oil boiler FAQs

Q. How frequently should I have my oil boiler serviced?

A. Your oil boiler manufacturer will recommend an oil boiler service annually.

Q. Why do I need an oil boiler service?

A. An annual service will clear your oil boiler of a build up of soot. This will enable it run at it's maximum efficiency. This will reduce fuel consumption therefore reducing your fuel bills. A recent study stated that if you hadn't had your oil boiler serviced for 3 years that the average saving would be 15% on your annual heating bills. Your service technician will check all of the safety control features and operational systems. This will include checking for leaks and start up performance. When checking the start up performance a trained ear will sometimes hear noises that indicate imminent failure of one or more components. Addressing any problems at this stage can save large amounts of money in the long term. If your boiler packs up completely it will cost far more to fix than maybe a new part during your annual boiler service.

Q. Is it expensive to have an oil boiler service?

A. The average company charges a standard €99 to service an oil boiler. Boiler services Dublin charge anywhere between €59-€89 depending on the make and model.

Q. Why is there different prices for different makes and models?

A. It's not necessarily to do with the size of your boiler that the price can vary. Some boilers take a lot longer to service properly. As we are putting our outstanding professional reputation to the work we complete we do a very thorough job. Some oil boilers have important parts in difficult to access places and some have more components that may need to be removed tested and cleaned before being replaced.

Q. What happens if a technician says I need a part replacing?

A. Our technicians will always recommend replacing a part where necessary. We will often have parts with us in case of this. The technician will discuss this with the customer first and the price of the part involved. It is ultimately the customers decision. If we do not have the part in stock we will get it for you. We will not charge for getting the part or the traveling time involved. We will return and fit it at your convenience.
