Enjoy The Benefits
Once your fires serviced, they’ll run at best possible efficiency (how efficient will depend on your fire, age and condition) possible for your fire. You’ll enjoy comforting heat and a saving in your energy spend.
It’s doubtful your fire will break down following service, all parts are thoroughly cleaned, and any issues that could cause your fire to fail will be uncovered during the service.
The service will validate your warranty and home emergency covers. Both are usually only valid if the fires serviced every twelve months. In the event of a defunct part or breakdown, you’ll be able to claim without the fear of rejection.
Service gives you peace of mind your fires safe and not a carbon monoxide risk. Testing the pressure, burn rate, and exhaust (flue/chimney) ensure carbon monoxide isn’t a threat. Carbon monoxide alarms should be present in the same room as your gas fire.
If you’re a landlord, it’s good practice to have gas fires serviced every twelve months. Although this isn’t compulsory by law, it does ensure your tenants are safe. We can undertake a service at the same time as Gas Safety Checks or an annual Boiler Service.
