Schedule Annual Boiler Check-Ups


The simplest and most effective way to ensure your oil boiler is properly maintained is to schedule an annual boiler maintenance service carried out by a qualified professional, such as those at Alliance Ireland. Our experienced tradespeople are able to carry out comprehensive checks, highlighting any issues they come across and providing appropriate solutions. By performing annual maintenance, you can catch problems early on before they have the chance to become more serious.



Only Use Quality Oil


Although the temptation may be there to skimp on the oil you use to save a quick penny, this can end up costing you more down the line. It is important that you only use quality oil for your oil boiler. The most common oil used in Ireland for home heating purposes is kerosene oil, as this works well with all modern oil boilers and is efficient and cost effective.


Don’t Leave It Dormant


During the summer months, we recommend switching on your oil boiler every so often to ensure it is still running smoothly. Leaving your boiler dormant for weeks or even months at a time can lead to operational issues.
