- The Gas Safe Registered engineer will inspect your appliance, its components and controls to make sure that they are functioning correctly.

- The ignition, as well as the heat exchanger, being the most important parts, will also be checked carefully.
- The technician will also perform a flue analyser test to confirm that the burner pressure and combustion are all good.

- The valves to the radiators will be visually checked for possible leaks.

- You will also receive a My Plumber radiator key.
Servicing your boiler on a regular basis improves the performance of your appliance, and thus, its lifespan. But more importantly, investing in specialist boiler inspection and testing will ensure the safety of your family and property. The engineer will inspect the appliance, piping, valves, connections, etc. for any signs of rust, leaks or other types of faults. Here are some of the main reasons why you should not delay your boiler servicing session:
A malfunctioning boiler can put people’s lives at risk, be it because of the silent killer - carbon monoxide or due to the appliance catching fire. It's as simple as that. So, always get your water heating appliance serviced annually and in due time!
Skipping your annual boiler service for whatever reason will result in your appliance’s warranty becoming invalid. This means that if your boiler breaks down, the repairs will be at your expense.
A well-maintained and regularly serviced boiler performs more energy-efficiently, providing you with comfort in the cold weather and efficient heating, and all this, not at an unnecessarily higher cost.
Serving you for longer
Your boiler will perform better and for years to come if you ensure that it’s serviced every year, that’s for sure. Or in other words, the discovery of a minor problem during the servicing won’t lead to a bigger one that can result in the need of replacing your boiler altogether.
Landlords are legally required
A landlord must hire a Gas Safe Registered engineer to perform an annual gas safety check and boiler servicing, in order to obtain their gas safe certificate, without which, they would be breaching the law if continuing to rent out their property.

The minimum appointment time you can book is 1 hour, then we charge on an half hour basis. You always pay only for the actual time spent. If there is any shopping time and extra materials needed they come on top of the initial quote. To give you an accurate estimate for your boiler services, you need to schedule an on-site visit first.
Although boiler servicing may involve the execution of some minor repairs, there is a significant difference between the two services. You see, a boiler repair specialist will be called out to fix a suspected issue with your appliance, more often than not. A boiler servicing engineer, on the other hand, will perform a number of tests to ensure that your boiler is safe and works as it should. And if he discovers a minor problem, he may repair it there and then or advise you to invest in a boiler repair service.
In other words, an annual boiler servicing session is designed to prevent the need of repair service. Also, a boiler repair service will not involve the performance of all the necessary tests but it’s booked specifically for the removal of a said boiler problem.
To sum up, a boiler servicing expert will ensure that the risk of costly repairs is significantly reduced, so resorting to it annually is not only the safe thing to do but also a smart financial move.
There is an important difference between boiler servicing and a gas safety check. An engineer can be hired to service a boiler that runs on solid fuel, for instance, not on gas, for a start. In addition, during the service, the specialist inspects the appliance in detail and if necessary, he may fix or replace a small but important part to improve the performance of the boiler and ensure its safety. Furthermore, boiler servicing applies obviously to the boiler only, its connections and your heating system components sometimes, whereas a gas safety check involves the inspection of all your appliances that run on gas and their connections. During such a check, the professional will not attempt to repair anything but will only recommend what should be done if needed.
Still, both types of services should never be skipped, when due, as carbon monoxide related deaths and injuries remain a serious problem every year in the UK.
Landlord gas safe certificates
Remember, if you are a landlord, renting out at least one property, it’s compulsory for you by law to have a gas safe certificate issued every year after an annual gas safety check of all the gas appliances in the place. Landlord gas certificates, again, can be only given by gas safe registered engineers, of course.
And here, it’s good to point out that even though private homeowners are not legally obliged to invest in a gas safety check, as they don’t have tenants, it’s still strongly recommended to do so for their own peace of mind and safety.

Does it matter when my boiler should be serviced?
Yes, it does. You should always service your boiler annually, which means before the 12-months period ends since your last inspection. Failure to do so will result in the boiler’s warranty becoming invalid. On another note, the summer months are the best time to service your appliance for the first time, as this will put your mind at rest that you’re all prepared for the coming heating season.
Can I do something extra to ensure that my boiler is running safely?
Yes, you can install a carbon monoxide detector and a smoke alarm to boost your property and family’s safety. In addition, there are a few regular checks that you can do yourself, too, such as inspecting the temperature, water level and pressure of your boiler. Last but not least, keep your manual book handy, so when boiler service day comes, you can present it to the technician without delay.
What do I have to do if I suspect a leak from my appliance?
Firstly, turn off any electrical appliances and the lights. Then, open the windows and vacate your home at once. Call 0800 111 999, which is the hotline of the National Gas Emergency Service and wait nearby for the specialists’ arrival.
