Do I Need a Boiler Service?

It is essential to provide regular servicing for your boiler to ensure that it works to its optimum level at the times that you need it most. Regular servicing should take place at least once a year and will ensure that when the cold winter nights set in, your home will remain nice and warm.

An annual gas boiler service will not only save you money, it will also give you peace of mind.

Complicated Pieces of Equipment

Although highly effective, modern condensing boilers are complex pieces of equipment and it is not unknown for components to fail on rare occasions. A regular boiler service will check that your boiler is compliant with current regulations (which are consistently being updated) and that it is functioning safely.

A faulty boiler can be extremely dangerous so regular gas boiler maintenance is important because it will help to detect minor faults and allow us to nip them in the bud before they become more serious.

Earlier the Better

The earlier the servicing is completed the better although obviously any time is better than it not being completed at all. As the nights begin to draw in and the temperature begins to drop, there is often a noticeable increase in the number of breakdowns due to the fact that the boiler has not been used for a prolonged period of time. It is also the time when it is difficult getting a gas safe engineer because they are very busy fixing the boilers that could have been checked in the summer months.

What Does a Boiler Service Entail?

During a full gas boiler service the team at J & P will provide the following:

  • A visual check ensuring your boiler meets the current specified standards.
  • A thorough inspection whilst switched on in order to identify any obvious working faults.
  • A comprehensive check of all the major components.
  • Gas valve adjusted to ensure efficient combustion.
  • Boiler parts cleaned if required
  • Gas tightness check to ensure there are no leaks.
  • Boiler casing replaced

At the conclusion of your service you will receive a report detailing all of the work which has been completed.
