Hi, welcome to my blog. Here I will be showing some tips about domestic heating systems, those using oil boilers in particular, however I am open to requests. Over the years I have seen many instances of very good practice, and also very poor practice. This photo shows what happens if the maintenance of an oil boiler is neglected, resulting in a badly fouled combustion system. However this is easily prevented - an annual service will ensure that the burner is set up correctly
If you have fuel burning equipment (open fire, gas boiler, oil boiler, wood burning stove etc) in your home there is a risk that Carbon Monoxide could be emitted. To protect everyone (and pets) who enters your home it is essential to have a Carbon Monoxide alarm fitted in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. The photograph shows an alarm made by Kidde however there are many more manufacturers with products that are equally as effective.
