Our Gas Safe Registered Engineers offer full fire servicing around Chelmsford and the rest of Essex.
We have been servicing fires in the area for many years. Our engineers have lots of experience in all types and make of Fire.
After service, your Fire will run safely at the maximum possible efficiency.
Fires are thoroughly cleaned. All working parts are tested along with the ventilation, flues and chimneys.

- Reduce the risk of a breakdown (which can be unpleasant in winter)
- Ensure your Fire is running at best possible efficiency, which will save on your energy bills.
- Reduce the risk of Carbon Monoxide
- Validate warranties
If you are a Landlord, you are required by law to have Safety Checks for all Gas appliances in your property checked every 12 months.
We service all types of gas fires which include
- Standard Open Fronted Gas Fires
- High-Efficiency Gas Fires
- Outset Gas Fires
And all flue types, including
- Brick Chimney/Class One Flue
- Pre-Fabricated Flue

When it comes to warming your home, little beats the warmth of a Gas Fire which are regularly found in the homes of Chelmsford.
All fuel-burning appliances such as gas fires must be serviced each year (as should boilers) and accompanied by a carbon monoxide detector.
All gas appliances can generate carbon monoxide, which occurs when fuels not burned at the correct rate or flues and chimneys are not functioning correctly.
The internal parts of gas fires work very hard and need cleaning (which happens during the service). Left alone, your Fire’s efficiency will decline slowly but surely becoming more expensive to run.
An annual gas fire service ensures your fire runs at the most efficient rate and doesn’t pose a carbon monoxide risk.

Validate Your Gas Fire Warranty
Many Gas fires come with long warranties. However, many manufacturers state that the gas fire must undergo an annual service for the warranty to be valid. The same goes for home emergency cover. Many won’t cover a broken down fire unless it’s been serviced in the last 12 months.
