My father Jock Adam worked with oil boilers firstly manufacturing them at Portways
in Halstead in the 60’s. Then started working for BP and Shell in the 70’s. He started
his own business in 1982 “Jocks Boiler Service” and I started working for my father
In the following years he trained me to service and maintain oil boilers to his own
very high standards. We regularly worked on Huskvarna warm air units, wall flame,
vaporising and pressure jet boilers. Today the majority of my work is on conventional
pressure jet boilers and modern condensing appliances.
Due to ill health my father had to retire in 2002 and I took over, calling the business
Bobs Oil Boiler Service LLP.
I still look after many of my father’s original customers from the 80’s and a few
even from the 70’s. Approximately 90% of my customers are domestic households. I
also carry out work for schools, village halls, churches, and domestic size oil boilers
on factory premises. Several local Estate Agents and Landlords use me for the service/maintenance
of their client’s boilers.
My aim is to give all my customers the best service I can, this includes in a standard
a full clean out of boiler heat exchanger
removal and cleaning of all baffles
full dismantle and cleaning of burner
digital combustion check with print out
oil tank, filters and oil line inspection
Great care taken in keeping surrounding work area clean/tidy, using dust sheets and
plastic covers etc.
I carry a very large stock of most modern and old boiler spares and manage to repair
99% of all breakdown call outs on the first visit, which is much appreciated by many
customers particularly on cold winter days.
I can also arrange for new oil tanks to be installed or existing tanks moved. I also
have contact for local reliable plumbers for new installations.
