Boiler Servicing provides several benefits, which include…
A good number of Boiler Repairs we undertake are on neglected boilers.
This is usually because dirty Boilers have to work harder, so the working parts wear out quicker.
Also, servicing uncovers any existing issues you may not be aware of, such as incorrect settings, which can be adjusted or a failing component that can be dealt with before a breakdown happens.
Servicing your Boiler annually dramatically reduces the chance of issues or breakdowns.
Boilers are fuel-burning appliances. As such, the internal components get dirty and require cleaning. Otherwise, your Boiler will have to work harder, costing more to run.
Servicing involves the thorough cleaning of the Boiler so it runs efficiently. In addition, the gas burner is tested and adjusted so the correct amount of gas is used without wastage.
The engineer also tests the safety devices and the flue. The safety devices stop the Boiler in the event of a fault, and no costly damage to the Boiler occurs.
The engineer tests the flue to verify that the exhaust gasses are expelled and won’t create a carbon monoxide risk.
The engineer ensures adequate ventilation for your Boiler to further ensure safe use and correct running of your Boiler.
Following service, you can relax in the knowledge your Boiler’s safe to use.
Boilers should always have a carbon monoxide alarm installed nearby. While servicing verifies safety, an alarm should always be present just in case. The engineer will check your carbon monoxide one and make recommendations if an alarm is absent.
Warranty & Breakdown Cover Validation
Boilers include warranties after installation, so your Boiler is covered if there is an issue.
You may have home breakdown cover on your Boiler or as part of your home insurance also.
Bear in mind that warranties and insurance are only valid if your Boiler’s serviced every 12 months by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
An annual Boiler service ensures your Boiler is covered by warranty and your home insurance.
A service record accompanies every service for proof in the event you need to make a claim.

The Faults That Cause Boiler Breakdowns
Boilers are complex appliances, and several reasons could be causing the issue you’re experiencing.
The first thing to check is the pressure which should be between 1-2 bars. Most Boiler manufacturers recommend somewhere between 1.3-1.5 bars (read your Boiler manual to determine the exact pressure).
Suppose the pressures low try repressurising your Boiler once the Boiler’s running monitor the pressure. If it drops again, there’s probably a leak, loose seal, blockage, a faulty valve or maybe a failing pump.
One of our engineers will find the cause and make the necessary repairs replacing faulty parts where needed.
An engineer should always investigate loud noises. Always pay attention to unusual noises. Something’s not right.
A whistling Boiling kettle noise indicates a blocked heat exchanger, an urgent issue that could write off your Boiler if not dealt with.
The thermocouple is a safety device that regulates the gas flow. If your pilot light won’t stay on, your thermocouple needs adjusting or has reached the end of its life and needs replacing.
Frozen condensate pipes are the prime cause of Boiler failure in freezing weather conditions. The condensate pipe removes wastewater produced by your Boiler. Therefore, the pipe should be insulated to prevent freezing.
If your condensate pipe freezes because of inadequate insulation, our engineer will defrost the pipe and add insulation, so the issue doesn’t occur again in the future.
