We always recommend that you have your boiler serviced annually, A regularly serviced boiler is less likely to break down and may even save you money on your energy bills.
We offer a fixed fee service which, at £75* is very good value for money as parts and labour to repair a boiler that has broken down could be much more expensive. We consider that a boiler service is often cheaper than a car service, but keeping you and your family warm throughout the winter months is probably just as vital as being able to get from A to B.
An inefficient boiler that is not running optimally can lead to higher energy bills and a shorter boiler life. We service all types of boilers and will even send you a reminder when your boiler is due for a service. See also Boiler Repairs
What Is a Boiler Service?
Whilst a gas safety check assesses the basic safety of a gas appliance a service will consist of a full check of a gas appliance and the engineer is likely to take the appliance apart to inspect it. The engineer will assess the physical condition of the appliance, installation pipework, air vents and any flues for deterioration. They will carry out performance tests and take any necessary remedial action.
Servicing your gas appliances regularly will make sure they are safe to use, it can be a false economy to skip regular checks or servicing as looking after your appliance can extend it's life, which will save you money in the long run.
Gas appliances should be serviced regularly but if you notice any of the warning signs below you should arrange for a Gas Safe registered engineer to service your appliance as soon as possible:
· Your gas appliance is not working properly
· Your appliance is burning with a lazy yellow flame instead of a crisp blue flame
· You can see black marks or stains on or around your gas appliances
· The pilot light keeps going out
· There is increased condensation in the room
