Services

Here are the oil services I provide throughout County Clare.

Servicing

Having your oil fired boiler serviced regularly can keep it operating at its most efficient for longer. This reduces fuel bills and saves you money on costly call out fees for unexpected breakdowns.

Boiler manufacturers recommend that a service is carried out once a year.

Commissioning

Your new High Efficiency Oil Boiler needs to be commissioned after installation before the manufacturer will issue you a warranty.

Commissioning consists of checking the whole installation is up to regulations, setting the boiler running efficiently, and showing you how it works and how to get the best from your investment.

Repairs

Nothing can be more frustrating than a non functioning boiler on a cold day.

When your appliance breaks down I can turn up quickly and get you running again with the least amount of fuss.

Boiler/Controls Upgrades

If your boiler is getting on for 15 years old it is very likely that its seasonal efficiency has dropped to as little as 70% even with regular servicing. I can supply and install an energy efficient condensing oil boiler with a seasonal efficiency of 94% to 97%.

Combining your boiler upgrade with a heating controls upgrade could take your savings up to around 40%.

Boiler Service Reminders

You can sign up to my free reminder service that will ensure you don't miss an annual service and you keep your boiler running efficiently.

I often find customers telling me they last serviced the boiler a year or so ago only to find a sticker stating it was nearer to three or even four years.

About Me

My name is Mike Todd, and since 2008 my company Clare Boiler Services has been supplying professional & competitively priced oil boiler services to many happy customers in Co. Clare.

I specialise in the installation, commissioning, repairing, and servicing of domestic oil boilers.

I have worked in the building and construction trade for more than 30 years and I am a fully trained, Blueflame certified and OFTEC registered oil boiler technician. OFTEC registration is not yet compulsory to work on oil appliances in the republic of Ireland and a lot of boiler technicians and/or plumbers are not registered. However to ensure your continued Boiler Warranty with all main oil appliance manufacturers, commissioning and annual servicing must be carried out by a competent person such as an OFTEC Registered Technician.

Use of non-competent persons may invalidate your warranty and/or your home insurance policy.

Furthermore I believe that by registering and working in accordance with OFTEC rules and regulations I am showing you my own commitment to high standards and care whilst working at your house.

Frequently Asked Questions

No I am not registered to work on gas and I specialise in working on domestic and commercial oil appliances.
Kerosene, also known as 28 second oil, is a low-sulphur and clean burning oil which is used in the majority of modern oil-fired boilers in Ireland. Because it burns cleanly it economically produces a high level of heat. Kerosene is the only oil suitable for use with an indoor boiler or high efficiency condensing boiler. Gas Oil (green diesel), also known as 35 second oil, tractor diesel, heating oil, is a cheap industrial diesel fuel which is more commonly used in agriculture and industry.
Apart from any servicing obligations to keep your warranty, it is also important to keep your oil boiler clean from deposits left by the combustion process, this keeps the appliance running at the efficiency the manufacturer intended. It is also important to check all of the safety control features and operational systems. This will include checking for water and oil leaks and catching them early before damage is spread. When the boiler is running a trained ear will sometimes hear noises that indicate imminent failure of one or more components. Addressing any problems at this stage can save large amounts of money in the long term.
I service a standard efficiency oil boiler for €80 and a high efficiency condensing boiler for €90, both of these will include a new nozzle, flue gas analysis with printout and installation safety check.
I will discuss this with you first and the price of the part involved however it is ultimately your decision. I will always recommend replacing a part where safety is an issue. I carry a large selection of parts that could be required during a service or repair. If I do not have the part in stock I will get it for you. I do not ask for money up front and I will return and fit it at your convenience.
I always try to give a specific appointment time to attend your home or rental property and try my very best to stick to it. If I am running a little late I will always contact you as early as possible to let you know.
I can cover all of County Clare for planned work such as servicing, commissioning and upgrades, however at busy times I may not be able to accommodate short notice call outs for breakdowns in remote areas.
