What is a boiler service?

A boiler service is a procedure which is done by a Gas Safe Registered engineer, so they can check and ensure your boiler, and central heating system, are both running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. 

On average, an annual service will take about an hour to complete, but this does depend if there are any issues that arise. During the boiler service, our engineers follow a service checklist to make sure everything has been inspected and is working well.

Do I need to get my boiler serviced annually?

Just like a car, your boiler needs to be well maintained & serviced to make sure it's running at its best.

Your annual service will increase your boilers efficiency, reliability and reduce the chance of carbon monoxide poisoning – it’s recommended by the gas safe register to get your boiler serviced annually.

If you have a warranty on your boiler, you're required to get a yearly service to keep your warranty from becoming void.
