Why service your boiler?

What does commissioning mean?
Commissioning refers to the engineer checking the settings and controls within the boiler, to ensure that it runs to its maximum efficiency and meets current building regulations.

The original top copy of the passport must be returned to the manufacturer. If it is a Turco Boiler, please return your paper work to Turkington Engineering, 14Tullylagan Road, Cookstown. BT80 9AZ.

Red Light is on in-front of the burner and the boiler is not working, what does this mean?
The burner is failing to fire therefore the red reset button will be illuminated. This indicates that no fuel is getting to the burner. It is recommended that you contact your engineer.
I ran out of oil, the boiler system is air-locked. How do I bleed the system?
This should only be undertaken by a service engineer. If the oil level is allowed to run very low sediment can often be found at the bottom of the oil tank, which can be drawn in to the burner causing severe damage. Contact your engineer.
