Boiler services Dublin should be done annually

We here at The Dublin plumber recommend that you should do a regular oil boiler service. With out doubt your boiler system should be checked annually as the minimum requirement.

Oil boiler service saves you money

If you carry out regular checks on your oil boiler, you are going to increase the efficiency of the system and also prolong the life of the system. Too many of us ignore the system and then when we have a problem its usually a big job or a replacement which comes with a significant cost to you. The smartest approach for you the home owner of Dublin is maintenance and a checkup annually. 

The Silent Killer Carbon Monoxide.

No this is a far warning to you the house owner of Dublin, you have to be aware of Carbon Monoxide. Carbon Monoxide is a an odourless colourless poisonous Gas. This can occur if your boiler is not working efficiently so you can see its imperative that you service your oil boiler.  As a matter of a fact on average between 1 and 2 people die each year in Ireland from unintentional CO poisoning in the home in incidents related to domestic heating or other fossil fuel installations in the home.
