We keep homes with oil-fired boilers, AGAs, combis and cookers heated and operating smoothly throughout Britain. A boiler break down can be a costly inconvenience, but regular servicing for all oiled boilers and cookers can minimise the risk of breakdowns, ensuring performance is kept as economically and efficiently as possible.
Our friendly team of OFTEC registered engineers are educated at our in-house training centre based in Rutland, meaning you’re always guaranteed the Watson outstanding level of service. In addition, all of our engineers are based locally to you. As well as servicing your boiler, Watson Boiler service engineers will also check that your oil fired boiler complies with the latest OFTEC regulations and check the site gauge on your tank.
Because we know every family’s needs are different, we offer three different boiler service plans; Bronze, Silver and Gold. All Service plans cover your appliance for one to two services a year which can be paid either by monthly direct debit or a one off annual payment in advance. We will also undertake one off services on boilers.
Thoroughly inspect, clean and adjust the burner controls and all component parts of the boiler for dependable operation and maximum efficiency.
Replace parts as required, in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations.
Inspect oil storage tank and sight gauge, check for water if suitable valve fitted, and report any defects.
Clean all unit flue ways and combustion chambers.
Check the operation of the water circulator pump and lubricate externally if required.
Check the operation of the time clocks, room and boiler thermostats and other electrical controls and report any defects.
Check and tighten, if necessary, all accessible oil pipe connections.
Inspect chimney flue ways and advise if sweeping is necessary (Sweeping not included).
Check and clean oil filters and fire valves.
Carry out efficiency tests where possible.

All orders made by you through the Website are subject to acceptance by Watson Fuels who may choose not to accept any order, for any reason. Payment for your order will be taken by or on behalf of Watson Fuels at the time you place your order but, for the avoidance of doubt, no contract will exist between you and Watson Fuels for the supply by Watson Fuels to you of any goods or services unless and until Watson Fuels sends you an e-mail confirming that it has accepted your order.
All contracts between you and Watson Fuels will be made in English.
Details of all orders received from you will be kept by Watson Fuels and will be available on request by you. You may correct and/or amend your order at any time up to acceptance by Watson Fuels.
Prices may vary according to quantity of order, delivery schedules etc. Watson Fuels will advise you of the price for your order when it sends you the e-mail confirming acceptance of your order. However, Watson Fuels reserves the right to cancel or amend all or part of your order (including e.g. as to price and/or delivery time) without prior notice and without liability to you in the event of circumstances beyond its reasonable control.
Once your order has been accepted, Watson Fuels will arrange delivery of the goods to your premises in accordance with the delivery details provided by you. Time is not of the essence for these purposes. Delivery may be made by such instalments as Watson Fuels deems appropriate. The quantity shown on Watson Fuels's paperwork shall, in the absence of manifest error or fraud, be conclusive evidence of the quantity delivered. You must ensure that Watson Fuels (including its employees, agents and subcontractors) have all necessary vehicular access to your premises in order to allow delivery to be made. You must also ensure that all relevant storage facilities are suitable (in terms both of size and specification) for the goods to be delivered. Failure to comply with your obligations under this paragraph will result in the goods nevertheless being deemed to have been delivered in accordance with your order (such that risk in them will pass to you from that time and Watson Fuels may charge you all reasonable costs related to their further administration, storage, insurance, transport, delivery etc).
Except as set out below, you may cancel any order for the supply of goods up to the end of seven working days from the date of delivery and you may cancel any order for the supply of services up to the end of seven working days from the date of acceptance of your order. You will have no right to withdraw from any contract made with Watson Fuels for the supply of goods (e.g. fuel oil) where the goods have been delivered to you and, by reason of their nature, they cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly or their price is dependent on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by Watson Fuels. You will have no right to withdraw from any contract made with Watson Fuels for the supply of services where performance of the services has begun, with your agreement, within seven working day's of acceptance by Watson Fuels of your order.
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights as a consumer.
Watson Fuels reserves the right to sub-contract the performance of any order made by you.
