OFTEC, the trade body that represents the oil heating industry, has created a guide to smarter heating to urge UK households to join a nationwide effort to reduce the amount of energy they use to heat their homes.
Our boiler services are reduced by £10 over the summer but what can you really do with £10? If you have tenners to spare then this offer's probably not for you. However, we think you can have some pretty nice treats for £10 and surely it's better in your pocket than ours?
The sun comes out, the heating goes off and that's that til winter isn't it? Well, actually no: there are a few little things you need to be doing for your boiler over the summer to keep it working well and make sure there are no unwanted surprises come the colder weather.
"May I thank you and your engineer who attended my home this week.
The engineer was so polite, helpful and good at his work, I worked in the gas industry (British Gas / Transco) for 30 years and understand what the service involves and the service required, and your service is excellent! Please pass my thanks on to the engineer involved."
