How often should a boiler be serviced? A boiler should be booked in for an annual service to ensure it is operating to maximum capacity. Booking your boiler in for a service once a year will make sure it is operating safely, efficiently and validate the warranty on the boiler avoiding those unwanted repair bills. During a boiler service, a gas safe engineer will thoroughly check the components of your boiler and identify any issues before they become problems. In this article, we explain what happens during a boiler service with our boiler service checklist.
What Happens During a Boiler Service?
We recommend booking your boiler in for a service once a year to ensure your boiler is working safely and effectively. An annual boiler service is often required by the manufacturer of the boiler to keep the warranty valid. As an approved installer our boiler warranties run for up to 10 years.
During a boiler service, a gas safe engineer will carry out several checks and tests on your boiler to ensure it is operating safely, effectively and efficiently; without any issues. A boiler service will help to reduce the risk of boiler breakdown and help lengthen its lifespan.
Below we explain, what our gas service engineers look for during a boiler service.
