Do you need a Boiler Service every year?
Legally, no, but there are a few reasons why you should consider completing a boiler maintenance check each year. Homeowners often forget
the importance of an Annual Boiler service when it seems to be functioning as it should. Still, a boiler service is essential to help keep the boiler working as it should throughout winter. A service
will also detect dangerous situations and reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be deadly to your family.
What are the benefits of having a service each year?
We highly recommend having a service maintenance check each year. Over time, boilers become less efficient. As a result, you may notice
increased energy bills and frequent boiler breakdowns, which could leave you out of pocket for an expensive boiler repair that could have been prevented. Having a service improves the boiler's
lifespan and is an excellent way to keep the boiler working efficiently through the winter months. During the service, we also complete vital safety checks on the boiler to ensure it's operating
Do I need a service check if I have a new boiler fitted?
If you have a new boiler installed in your home, the Manufacturer will provide you with a guarantee covering all parts & labour should
anything go wrong with the boiler, but the manufacturer will have specific requirements to keep the warranty valid, which always includes having the boiler serviced annually by a gas safe registered
heating engineer. We can complete a boiler service for a fixed price of £70 and provide you with a service record.
