  • What is a boiler service?

    Boilers require a little care to keep them running effectively. Getting regular boiler services is a great way of keeping your boiler in tip top condition.

    A boiler service is basically a range of different checks to ensure your boiler is working safely and correctly.

    What is a boiler service engineer?

    Boiler service engineers carry out boiler services. They’re professionals who are Gas Safe registered, meaning they have the right training and experience to check your boiler safely.

  • Why get a boiler service?

    While boiler services aren't free, there are many benefits to paying a little to have your boiler checked out. Benefits range from safety to functionality and include:

    • Efficiency: Boiler services make sure every part of your boiler is working properly and efficiently. This means your boiler will use less energy and your energy bills will be lower.

    • Safety: Having an engineer regularly check your boiler is an excellent way of preventing accidents from happening. Your engineer will check to make sure there are no leaks and you’re safe from carbon monoxide poisoning.

    • Preventing costly repairs: During a boiler service, your engineer may spot developing issues with your boiler. Tackling these sooner could prevent the need for costly repairs further down the line.

    • Warranty: Some boiler warranties require regular services to ensure they’re valid.

    How long does a boiler service take?

    Luckily, you won’t need to block out a large chunk of time for your boiler service. The average duration is just 30 - 60 minutes, allowing you to get back to your day in no time at all.

  • What does a boiler service include?

    Even though a boiler service is quite a quick process, there are many checks your Gas Safe registered engineer will carry out. Below we’ve summarised some of the key parts of a boiler service:

    • Inspection: The boiler service engineer will first look at the condition and appearance of your boiler. They can spot any immediate issues and make any necessary adjustments.

    • Flue: Checking that the flue is clear and properly fitted.

    • Controls: Making sure the controls on your boiler work as they should.

    • Safety devices: Ensuring these are functioning properly.

    • Gas pressure: Checking that your boiler has the correct gas pressure.

    • Cleaning: If any of the components of your boiler need cleaning, your engineer will carry this out.

    • Documentation: Finally, the engineer will create a report of all the checks they’ve carried out. This may include tips and advice to keep your boiler working properly.

    How often should you service your boiler?

    Most boiler manufacturers recommend getting your boiler serviced each year.

  • How much is a boiler service?

    Many Gas Safe registered engineers have a standard boiler service price that they charge for all customers. Having said that, services for different types of boiler may be priced differently.
