magine it’s a cold winters day and your boiler breaks down and your central heating and hot water fail. This can quickly turn into a very stressful situation that we see happen all too often. Luckily, problems like this can be prevented by having your boiler serviced every year (recommended in summertime). Use this post to find out exactly what a boiler service is and its advantages. We conduct boiler services in London.
WHAT IS A BOILER SERVICE?
A boiler service is a series of checks, tests and necessary cleaning carried out to help ensure that your boiler and central heating system is safe and running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. It must be a Gas Safe Registered Engineer who conducts the boiler service.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A BOILER SERVICE?
During a boiler service a professional Gas Safe engineer will follow a comprehensive boiler checklist, and will be able to identify any faults, gas or water leaks. Ultimately, the Gas Safe engineer will ensure the safe operation of your boiler.
HOW LONG DOES A BOILER SERVICE TAKE?
A comprehensive boiler service usually takes less than an hour, although this does vary depending on the appliance. Your Gas Safe engineer will follow a boiler service maintenance checklist to ensure that everything has been checked and operating safely.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU SERVICE YOUR BOILER?
You should have your boiler serviced at least once a year, and it must be conducted by a Gas Safe engineer. The best time to schedule your annual boiler service is in summer when the demand on heating is lower. This also allows time to fix any faults before winter hits when you need heating, and your boiler has to work harder.
