Oil Tanks & Lines

AKH Heating is OFTEC registered.  We are able to carry out the installation and servicing of domestic and commercial oil-fired equipment.

Did you know that due to new regulations, your oil line requires pressure testing regularly. If you have any underground joints on the oil line it requires testing every 5 years if not it requires testing every 10 years. Ignoring these new regulations could affect your household insurance. 

Contact our office for more information.


We install all types of:

  • oil boilers and flues
  • oil tanks, complete with oil tank base if necessary, oil gauge, etc
  • oil lines

Are you looking to make changes to your garden?     We can reposition your oil tank and line.

We can also construct a base for your oil tank.

Tanks should be sited 1.8 metre (6ft) away from :- Non-fire rated eaves of a building, non-fire rated building or structure (eg garden shed), appliance flue terminals, and openings such as doors or windows.

Oil tanks should be sited 760mm away from a non-fire rated boundary such as a boundary fence or hedge row.

It is not always possible to comply with these requirements, in these circumstances a fire rated barrier should be installed, extending 300 mm higher and wider than the oil tank.

Oil tank regulations are regularly being updated, most recently changes have been made due to the increasing concern since the floods experienced in recent years with oil tanks leaking and or not being suitably secured in position.


We can visit your premises and carry out a free site survey for the works you require. A free comprehensive Quotation will be provided following all surveys.


We carry out service and breakdown maintenance on oil-fired appliances in areas of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.





Our engineers are experienced in a wide range of heating and plumbing jobs and can also install your shower, hot water cylinder, bathroom suite and mobility bathrooms.

If you need any help or further information please contact us on on 01258 472213 or email us.




We work closely with Landlords and Letting Agents, carrying out annual servicing, gas safety certificates and electrical inspection and test safety certificates.
