Servicing

Most commercial and industrial oil fired space heaters should be serviced at least once a year to ensure they remain in top condition, produce maximum power and burn at maximum efficiency.

Reasons to get your heater serviced:

  1. Over time your heater’s combustion chamber can develop a layer of soot, due to excessive smoke and partially burnt fuel deposits. This layer of soot restricts the amount of heat that can be transferred from the heater into the space. The cleaner the heater burns, the more efficiently the heater will run.
  2. The oil nozzles within diesel fired space heaters regulate how much oil passes through the burner. These nozzles wear over time, causing too much fuel to pass through the burner and a layer of soot to build up in the combustion chamber. This then affects combustion and reduces the heater’s efficiency. The oil nozzles should therefore be replaced to keep the heater burning efficiently.
  3. Photocells are an important safety feature which detect whether the burner is alight. These photocells can become dirty with deposits over time. A dirty photocell may not be able to detect the burner flame correctly and could cause the heater to shut down at random intervals.
  4. Many space heaters have electrodes which produce a spark to light the fuel. Over time, electrodes can wear and attract soot deposits. In poor condition, these electrodes may fail to light the burner.
  5. The heater’s fuel filters can become blocked with contaminants from the fuel. This can restrict fuel delivery and cause the burner to run erratically or inefficiently or even fail to light
  6. The seals on the heater’s fuel filter can harden with age and lose their flexibility. This can lead to leaks so it is important to get these seals changed.
