OFTEC’s consultancy service can provide independent on-site inspections and advice for oil heating customers whose requirements fall outside the range of services normally supplied by heating installation and service companies.
Launched a year ago in partnership with Local Authority Building Control, the service has been used by households, landlords and facilities managers in both the public and private sectors.
Over the past 12 months OFTEC has helped many clients review their existing installations, often detecting potential problems caused by poor system design or maintenance. They have also investigated after problems have already occurred, advising on the cause and checking the condition of other assets, sometimes across a number of sites.
Both end users and facilities managers find that oil heating continues to provide the high levels of reliability they need. Often, upgrading an existing system can dramatically improve its efficiency and at much lower cost than making wholesale changes. OFTEC can provide advice and guidance when planning upgrades and assist in evaluating tenders to ensure the work will achieve the desired return on investment.
