One of the most common problems include the build-up of carbon monoxide inside the tank. This is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that can present serious threats to your health if inhaled for long periods of time. In fact, anyone with even the slightest of symptoms of having CO poisoning should get out of the house and stay away from the stove or water until it has cleared up. The main cause for this is that the flue gas usually has its own source inside the structure of the oil boiler service tank. To combat this, make sure that you have an emergency CO supply on hand for any future emergencies.

Other problems include strange noises coming from your boiler which could indicate a problem. There are a variety of noises that include clicking and banging as well as a whistling noise that is called kettling.
