TM Hughes & Son have been servicing Gas Fires in the Maldon area for the past three decades. We have a team of experienced Gas Safe Registered engineers who have serviced all makes and types of fires over the years.
An annual fire service provides many benefits.
Over the course of winter, fire components work extremely hard and become dirty, which reduces efficiency, costing more to run and making your Fire more prone to breakdown. All working parts are cleaned and inspected, so they function properly. Your Fire will run very efficiently, burning less fuel giving you warmth for less money. The chances of breakdown are considerably lowered after servicing also.
Servicing involves safety checks on the working parts, flues & chimneys, ensuring the whole system’s safe and doesn’t pose a carbon monoxide risk. All gas appliances are a carbon monoxide risk if fuels not burned properly, or there are issues with flues and chimneys. Servicing uncovers any faults allowing us to rectify them so you and your family are safe. A carbon monoxide alarm should be placed in the same room as your Fire. We can advise on this if necessary during the service.
Most warranties and home breakdown cover isn’t valid unless your Fire’s been serviced in the last twelve months. After the service, you’ll be presented with a service record that proves your fires been serviced to the correct standard. Use this to validate your fire warranty or breakdown cover.
Good landlords ensure Gas Fire’s in their properties are serviced. A good time to service is during the compulsory annual gas safety checks.
