Your Experienced Boiler Service Professionals

Your boiler combines the gas, water and electricity in your home to provide hot water and heat through your central heating system. Seeing as it has such an important role in your home, it is integral that boiler maintenance is kept on top of. If 12 months have passed since your boiler service then you will need to book yourself in for another service. Broken boilers can do more than just put a hole in your wallet.

Gas Boiler Service

The secretion of carbon monoxide from a leaky pipe can be deadly, including risk of explosion or being set alight. It is important to ensure that your boiler receives a regular service. You may feel like you are saving money by not having to shell out for a service. But in actual fact, an annual boiler servicing can prevent problems, avoid unwanted disruptions and help to keep energy bills to a minimum.

Boiler Service

Boiler Servicing Procedure

Visual Check

Visual Check:

Our engineers will start the service by performing a visual. This will establish that the boilers, installations and the positioning are correct. A pre-service part will also be performed whereby the engineer will fire up the boiler to check its basic operation along with identifying any initial faults with the boiler.

Boiler Casing

Removing Casing:

The casing will then be removed by the engineer. You should never attempt this yourself as the homeowner. The main components will then be examined to ensure they are clean and free from damage. Our engineers will also check the electrics for any overheating, whilst also cleaning all the inside services and inspecting the pipework and joints. Most importantly, our engineer will check to make sure the flue terminal is unobstructed.

Valve Check

Gas Valve Check:

Our engineers will now use a flue gas analyser to check the gas valve. This will ensure that the boiler is combusting properly. If any of these tests show a fault, then the engineer will inform us of any additional cost that the repairs of the unit will incur. We will also carry out a gas tightening test. This will establish whether there are any leaks in the system.

Boiler Check

Final Steps:

The final steps in the servicing involves carefully replacing the casing back onto the boiler. Following this you will be given a service report. This is where you can compare what the engineer has stated, done with what has actually been completed. You only need to sign off on this report when you are satisfied with our engineer's work compared to the checklist.

Gas Safety Certificates

Landlords are also required to provide a gas safety certificate each year for tenants in their property. By law, under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, it is a Landlord's responsibility to get a Gas Safety Certificate every twelve months. This must be obtained from a Gas Safe Registered engineer for all pipe work, gas appliances and flues installed at your property. It is also recommended that domestic property owners regularly have all gas related items checked.

Gas Safety Certificates

The requirements for all these include all pipework, appliances and flues to be checked and confirmed as safe, and they must be maintained to pass the checks. The boiler and appliances will be condemned if they do not pass the checks. A notice sticker will then be placed on the front of the boiler or appliance as a warning of its failure in the check.

A Gas Safe Engineer must carry out the checks. The work will include:

  • A description of the location of each of the appliances or flue check.
  • The name, registration and signature of the engineer carrying out the check.
  • The date it was checked.
  • The address the checks were performed at.
  • Any defect that is identified and any remedial works required.
  • A statement confirming the safety checks completed comply with the regulations of the Gas Safety Regulations 1998.
