In June 2019, the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws guaranteeing an end to its contribution to global warming by 2050.The target will require the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050,compared with the previous target of at least an 80% reduction from 1990 levels.
However, at a time when the World needs more energy, we cannot sustain the increase in carbon dioxide emissions and harmful particulate matter that thus far are inevitably emitted from traditional fossil fuels. Fossil fuels must play a part in transitioning to this lower carbon future. Our challenge is how we meet demand for energy and move towards cleaner air and a net zero emission target in the UK.
As an industry, we have a track record of successes in this area. With the introduction of unleaded petrol and bio-fuels, we have been moving forward in this area. A progression that must now accelerate.

This is usually the result of a faulty actuator on a motorised valve.
This is normally a result of the circulation pump or a motorised valve having failed.
This is usually caused by air being trapped in your radiator. Using a suitable radiator ‘airing key’, you should be able to release the trapped air through the ‘bleed point’ at the top of your radiator.
Your main oil shut off valve can usually be found at the bottom outlet of your fuel tank. The valve will have either a wheel type handle (clockwise to close) or a lever handle (quarter push to close).
Annual servicing can increase your boiler efficiency, reduce emissions and ensure its safe operation. Studies have found that with just a 3mm layer of soot, your boiler efficiency can be reduced by more than 8%.
Your boiler restart button, also referred to as ‘lock out’, is located on your boiler burner unit. Usually, the burner unit front door cover will need to be removed to gain access to the control box reset (when ‘tripped’ the button is normally illuminated). To initiate a start-up, simply push the reset button – always […]
The majority of modern boilers are installed as sealed systems with no header tank to automatically top up the system with water. The system pressure gauge, located either on the front of the boiler or on a nearby pressure vessel, will normally indicate 1 Bar when the system is cold. If your gauge is showing […]
Have you checked your Fuel level? If there is plenty of oil in tank – call us and we can arrange someone to callout. If oil level is low or tank has ran dry the boiler will Lockout. Buy Heating Oil.
