Postby boab33 » Mon Sep 29, 2008 9:56 pm

Hi,as the gas is now covered by corgi i am wondering if its a similar situation with oil?I am in a rural area no mains gas just electric but i'm looking at fitting a complete oil combi heating system.Are there any rules/regulations stating i cant do it?does it have to be fitted by an oftec technician?cheers

You should be using a OFTEC Registered installer.

The same as only CORGI registered installers should work on gas appliances/installations. Only OFTEC registered technicians are the only people in England and Wales defined as competent to be working on oil installations.

is it against the law or against building regulations etc to install the heating myself?I am more than able to install it as i do a similar role in my work.cheers
