Follow the safety tips below to keep your boiler and central heating system safe and efficient.

Annual safety check

  • Get your boiler serviced once a year – this keeps your boiler safe and efficient and reduces the chance of a breakdown
  • If your boiler is not insured, or if your cover plan does not include an annual safety check, you need to contact a registered engineer
  • If you have a gas boiler, you must use a Corgi registered technician
  • If you have an oil-filled boiler contact Oftec to find a local, qualified engineer
  • Never attempt to service the boiler yourself
