Boiler Service and Maintenance
A boiler service is an important part of running any home and property and is strongly recommended by all boiler manufacturers across the board. It is important that on an annual basis you undergo a service by a Gas Safe registered engineer who will be able to assess and appropriately service your property’s boiler. Whether the property in question is your place of abode or if you are the landlord and rent it out, the servicing is your responsibility.
These services are crucial for all boilers, as if they are not looked after and maintained properly, a range of dangers can occur including Carbon monoxide poisoning, electrical faults and a lack of hot water and heating throughout the property, all of which can put you, your family and any residents in danger.
Many new appliances and boilers with 7 year warranties require annual checks and maintenance to maintain their warranty’s validity. Our engineers are experienced in carrying out such tests and will arrange a timeslot to suit you. We will always where requested provide a detailed breakdown of our services, meaning you will never be hit by hidden fees or extra charges for a service.

Common Problems with Boilers
Boilers are the hot water and heating hubs of our homes and they are very complex. Therefore, by their very nature they have the capability to cause all nature of problems when something goes wrong. There are however, some issues with boilers of all types that are more common than others and these will almost always require more than just a service:
Heating and Hot Water Faults – Water needs to pass through all of the pipes of the property in order to be distributed evenly and as it should be. The boiler which will almost always be powered by gas.
The boiler system will have a gas intake that will bring in natural gas from an external mains supply.
It then heats up the water when required to do so, then allowing it to spread throughout the property.
There are various reasons why the hot water and central heating may not work.
For example, the system may need a power flush.
Thermostat and Temperature Regulation – All properties will have a thermostat. It purpose is to monitor the temperature of the property and when set accordingly heat the property. The way thermostats work is by constantly monitoring the temperature in a property and switching on the heating when it is deemed too cold. Should a thermostat fail or stop working properly, the heating will not react as it should and may come on at inappropriate times or switch when required to stay on. This is something you should raise with a gas engineer if it occurs as it may indicate a fault with the boiler system.
Electrical Faults – There is a very important electrical aspect to boilers and it is electricity that powers and runs them. Should the electrics of the boiler fail or stop working as they should, the boiler will not be able to perform properly and may either stop working or may only function at a lower level. One of the risks here is that if the boiler doesn’t stop working but simply reduces its function, poisonous Carbon monoxide may be released which can be fatal.
