Is Now The Right Time?

There are a number of different schools of thought when it comes to the ideal time to have your boiler serviced. Some people think that it is most beneficial to have their boiler serviced during the middle of winter, others believe that the end of the winter when the boiler gas received lots of use is the ideal time. Some will have it as part of an annual service once a year and depending on the date it was fitted, would normally determine when it is service. Some may get there boiler serviced only once every 10 years but in our experience, the best time to get a boiler service/checked would be July or September due to the non or lack of use through the hottest months.

Remaining in Optimum Condition

Regular boiler checks will ensure that your boiler receives a comprehensive and thorough service. By just spending an extra half an hour or more will get a more look in to the boiler and advice for what should be done, so that there are no surprises in the hour of need.

What should really be checked is: the colour of the central heating water, corrosion or very slow leaks that vanish as the water passes. Check that the thermal couple looks in a good order rather than letting it go and then changing it. The heating heats up as expected like a boiler should work.

Is an Annual Boiler Service Absolutely Necessary?

During an effective boiler service, a qualified gas engineer will do a check on the flue and a check to see if the reading displayed is at an optimal levels. If the boiler reading of acceptable levels then the boiler does not need a service but if the boiler is not, then the boiler needs a good hoover.
