Do I need to hire a 'local heating engineer'?

If you have a Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) boiler, or an oil boiler, then you’ll need a heating engineer to perform annual maintenance, recertification and repairs whenever any part wears out or stops working.

Not sure whether you have an LPG boiler, an oil boiler or neither? One of the main advantages of this type of boiler is that it can be installed outside of the home. If your boiler is installed in an outhouse, shed or exterior building, chances are it’s an LPG or oil boiler.  

Whichever type of central heating system you have, HaMuch makes it easy to find local OFTEC-certified heating engineers in your area. So the next time you’re having LPG or oil boiler problems, or your radiators are suffering from a slight chill, let us help you find the perfect engineer to get the job done right first time.
