What checks are included in a boiler service?

  • Visual inspection: Any boiler service begins with a visual inspection of the boiler and associated pipework. Our engineer's will then look at whether your boiler is working correctly before starting the service.

  • Casing removal: Your engineer will then remove the casing to look at and clean the components to ensure your boiler is working safely and efficiently.

  • More checks: Our boiler engineers then complete a series of checks, including checking case seals, correct gas pressure, flue and combustion, to ensure the boiler is burning the right mixture of gas and check the flue is not blocked or any corrosion and safe to use. They will also check the electrical connections, fans and other components, electrodes, safety devices, condensate pipe, and condition of water and gas pipework. These checks are designed to ensure that your boiler is working safely.

What we do next?

It is essential to ensure that any appliance in your home works safely and your boiler is at the heart of your heating system.

How often should I get my boiler serviced?

Your boiler should be serviced every 12 months. You may have a warranty on your boiler, so it must be serviced every year to meet the requirements. This will also offer you valuable peace of mind.
