Is it important to service your boiler? Yes!

A service or annual maintenance check is a spot check that your boiler is working correctly and running as efficiently as it can. It is also important to ensure that the boiler emissions are checked to ensure that it is running within the manufacturer’s specifications.

What should be covered in the service?

  • The boiler cover will be removed and the internal compartment cleaned and components checked for working order;
  • A flue test to ensure emissions are within manufacturers recommendations;
  • Gas rate, condense trap, magnetic filter, and controls checked, and more.

Sometimes a burner seal will be required, and you will be informed of this on the service sheet. With oil boilers a new nozzle is fitted at each service, and occasionally a flexi is also required. If you need help understanding what this all means, please do get in touch.

Gas fires also require checking, and the checks that are carried out are not too dissimilar to the boiler servicing. There are also occasions when the chimney requires sweeping, and we can organise on your behalf.

The importance of any check is that the manufacturers guidelines are followed, so it is essential that you keep the paperwork when the appliance is fitted.
