To promote safety and peace of mind to tenants, letting agents, landlords and property insurers, it is recommended that OFTEC registered technicians inspect and service oil fired installations on an annual basis. Additionally, planned maintenance can keep an appliance operating at peak performance, thus, keeping fuel bills to a minimum.
There have been no recorded deaths relating to oil fired appliances due to carbon monoxide. However, any experienced OFTEC registered installer will inform you that every fossil fuel burning appliance has the potential to produce carbon monoxide if incorrectly installed or maintained. Carbon monoxide is a highly toxic poisonous gas, which is produced by the incorrect burning of a fossil fuel. It is odourless, colourless, tasteless and therefore difficult to detect.
