Information and advice on heating systems for those not on the mains gas network and who are using oil, solid fuel or renewable systems
Information for consumers
Welcome to the consumer section of our website. We've put together information and advice for anyone who uses heating equipment at home, or is responsible for it at a place of work, and is not connected to the mains gas network. This information will also be useful for specifiers of heating equipment.
This website is managed by OFTEC. We specialise in heating premises that are off the mains gas network and we are a leading competent person registration scheme (CPS) provider for a range of heating technologies, including oil, solid fuel and renewables. Those businesses registered with a CPS have undergone training and assessment as well as having their work inspected.
As well as general information about domestic off-gas heating you’ll find advice on how to choose a reputable installer or maintenance technician, and how you can protect yourself by using a ‘competent person’. We hope you will find our website useful but, if you cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact us with your enquiry, using the contact information at the foot of this page.
