You need a boiler service every year to help keep it running smoothly, and also to keep your boiler warranty valid. If it is serviced every year, there is much less chance of it breaking down. A service will also help to make your boiler last longer, and also save you from costly boiler repairs.
What is a Boiler Service?
Boiler servicing is pretty much a clean and check up on your boiler. As well an overall check on your gas supply and safety of the boiler installation.
Some customers are quite shocked when they see the build-up of dirt, flies, and wasps that can come through the boilers flue over time.
Keeping on top of it with an annual boiler service helps to stop this build-up from causing problems with the boiler.
Full Strip and Clean Service
Sometimes older boilers may need a full strip and clean boiler service instead of our standard annual boiler service. This includes completely stripping down your boiler and removing all of the working parts.
The boiler parts will be thoroughly cleaned, and all put back together.
Every boiler service comes with a certificate, filled out and signed by a Gas Safe registered heating engineer.
Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm
A boiler service is a perfect time to have your carbon monoxide detector alarm checked. You might need to replace the batteries, renew the alarm, or maybe have one fitted if you don’t already have one.
Carbon monoxide is created by gas appliances like boilers, cookers, and fires. It can cause serious health problems if any of your gas appliances are leaking carbon monoxide into your home.
Is Your Boiler Under Warranty?
Most combi boiler installations come with a 2-year warranty or more. You must have your boiler serviced every year to keep the warranty valid.
If you do not get a boiler service every year, your warranty becomes void and you will have to pay for any boiler repairs. Therefore, all parts and labour costs will come out of your own pocket if it breaks down.
