warm houseOil boiler and tank Installation in Northumberland

March and April 2002 saw the biggest shake up in the regulations regarding Oil Installations.

From April 2002 any Installation or movement of Oil fired Appliance or Oil storage tank after these dates requires a formal application for PLANNING PERMISSION to the relevant Local authority. The only exception for this is if the Installer has the relevant registration with OFTEC (Oil fired Technical Association for the Petroleum Industry). This enables the Installer to Self-Certify their OWN work, but to finalise the job they must fill in a Completion of Installation certificate, the Installer is also responsible to ensure the appliance is commissioned. The Commissioning Technician also fills in a Commissioning Certificate. The Customer must retain these Certificates to prove the legality of the Installation. If the Installer is not OFTEC registered, after applying and receiving approval from the Local authority the work can commence, and when finished the same documentation must be completed but the Building Inspector must also check the Installation and paperwork and then sign off the job. No one other than the Building Inspector has the power to sign off another Installers work.

Although we no longer Install Oil appliances or storage tanks, we have provided a list of people who we work with that would be happy to quote for any Oil Installation work including Oil Cooker, Boiler and tank replacements in the North East,Northumberland and Scottish Borders; as well as other services that you may require regarding your Central heating and plumbing.

Please always check that anyone has necessary registration for any work that is required.
