Rix Heating Services recommends that boilers should be regularly serviced by OFTEC registered engineers, just like our own, in accordance with the prescribed manufacturer’s maintenance schedule - usually every 12 months. Oil fired installations require regular maintenance that includes a number of safety checks concerning emissions, the standard of oil filters/strainers and the inspection of fuel tanks and fuel line installations.
An OFTEC registered engineer should be able to observe the improved performance of a heating system with the presence of the K+ additive, but it is imperative that regular servicing and maintenance is still undertaken in conjunction with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Rix Petroleum does not recommend that boiler servicing is conducted by anyone that is not OFTEC registered as all OFTEC-approved engineers work to recognised high standards and practices.
