Regular servicing can keep you and
your family safe, save you money and keep your warranty valid. Read more on the benefits of a boiler service.
Safety - all appliances that burn wood or fossil fuels (such as natural gas) could produce poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) if they are not working properly, so to keep your family safe, your Gas Safe
registered engineer will check your boiler for CO.
Keep your warranty valid - our warranties require that your boiler is annually serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Failure to do so could invalidate your warranty, resulting in expensive
repair bills, should your boiler break down.
Fewer breakdowns - as you would expect when you take your car for its MOT, when you have your boiler serviced, all the main components are checked for wear and tear, and replaced if necessary. That
means that it is less likely to breakdown when you need it the most, particularly in the cold winter months.
Efficiency - a well-maintained and regularly serviced boiler will work more efficiently. This means you are using less fuel and reducing your energy bills.
An annual service will start with a visual check to ensure that the boiler and associated pipework is installed and positioned correctly. Your engineer will then check that your boiler is operating
correctly and identify any initial problems. Then they will remove the boiler casing to look at its components. They will check the boiler is working safely and efficiently, and clean the components
inside the boiler.
The engineer will check the following:
Correct gas pressure and flow
Flue and combustion. A flue gas analyser will be used to make sure the boiler is burning the right mixture of gas and air and that the flue is not blocked
Electrical connections are clean and in good condition *
Fans and other key components are working efficiently *
Seals are intact
Electrodes are in a good condition
Safety devices are checked
Condensate trap and pipe is not blocked *
Water and gas pipework
Our engineer should inform you if the boiler does not meet building and safety legislation and regulations during their checks.
