Frequently Asked Questions about Gas Boiler Services
Here are some key insights into the topic of Gas Boiler Services.
How often should a boiler be serviced?
If your boiler is under warranty with the manufacturer, the warranty will only be valid if you get the boiler serviced annually. With an item that is used so often, regular services are important, as it means that it can stay up and running.
We all know just how expensive boiler repairs can be, and an annual service is the best possible way to stay away from these repairs if possible. If your boiler is no longer under warranty, then although there is no legal requirement for it to be serviced, it is still recommended that you stick with the annual routine of booking your service.
Not only is it safer, but it is likely to save you money in the long term as you will be able to avoid costly repairs. In addition to this, it is likely that having a regularly serviced boiler will have a positive impact on your landlord insurance premium.
Who can carry out a boiler service?
Although there are lots of people who might claim that they know a lot about boilers and can therefore service them, the fact is that they should be Gas Safe registered before they can legally undertake any kind of paid work on equipment involving gas.
All of our engineers have the qualifications and training necessary to undertake the work, which means that you know for sure that we’re doing a top-quality job and, more importantly, that we’re doing it safely.
What will be included in a boiler service?
There are many aspects to your boiler, and many of these will be checked during a service, to ensure that everything involved in running the boiler can continue to work as it should. The following will be checked during a service:
- The chimney structure. This will ensure that gases can escape safely, and that the fumes are sent a safe distance away from the property. During a service, this could also include the burner or combustion chamber being cleaned, if there has been any kind of significant build-up since your last service.
- The seals and gaskets, to ensure that they are all secure and safe.
- The condensate traps and drains, to make sure that no debris has been trapped within them.
- The heat input and operation pressure, in line with the manufacturer’s instruction manual.
- The effectiveness of the flue, to ensure that there are no harmful gases released inside of the property
- That all necessary ventilation requirements are being met.
- Combustion analysis, in line with requirements set by the manufacturer.
- Function testing of heating and hot water performance.
- A visual inspection of any other gas appliances that may be present within the property.
In addition to all of the above, there are also some things that aren’t routinely checked during a service that you should be aware of. These are:
- Any breakdowns or problems that you might have. A service is simply to ensure that your boiler is running smoothly – if there are issues found, these will have to repaired separately, and will not be included in the service. You may find that some of these are covered if the boiler is under warranty; however, so should always make sure you know exactly what kind of cover you have.
- Maintenance or remedial work.
- Testing of the gas installation pipework – unless you suspect that there is a gas leak, or there is a known issue.
Is a boiler service worth it?
To put it simply, yes, getting your boiler serviced is more than worth it. Not only can it help to protect your warranty if your boiler is particularly new, but it can also help to avoid repairs being necessary in the future that might be much more costly than your annual service.
In addition to saving money, there are also huge safety considerations with gas boilers. People die every single year thanks to carbon monoxide poisoning, and many of these deaths could have been prevented if their faulty equipment had been checked sooner.
When you consider the fact that you are thinking about a boiler in your rental property, you will understand exactly why it is so important to make sure that you are up to date with your services.
How much will my service cost?
The true cost of your service will depend on the kind of boiler you have. Our team will be able to give you plenty of information about this and give you a quote. You should, however, be aware of the fact that if any work is necessary on your boiler, the cost of the service will not cover this, and you will need to pay separately unless it is covered on a separate policy.
