Boiler Servicing FAQs

Why is boiler servicing important?

Regular boiler maintenance is essential for maintaining the boiler's safety, efficiency, and longevity. It enables the early detection of any prospective issues and ensures that they are promptly resolved before they become significant issues. In addition, boiler maintenance improves the efficiency of your boiler, reducing energy waste and your carbon footprint.

What benefits come along with getting a boiler serviced?

These benefits include:

  • Ensure your boiler is working efficiently
  • Any issues are dealt with earlier, saving you money on any future repair costs
  • A thorough test and inspection are carried out to help boost the overall performance
  • Increases the lifespan of your boiler

How often should I get my boiler serviced?

A boiler should be serviced every year. This is because it helps validate your manufacturer's warranty. Also, if you are a landlord, it is a legal requirement for you to service any gas appliances in your property every year or whenever you have a new tenant. All boiler servicing should be carried out by qualified Gas Safe registered engineers.

What happens during a boiler service?

When our Gas Safe registered engineers carry out a boiler service, we ensure that your boiler is thoroughly tested and inspected. We will also make sure that your boiler is working correctly and remove any build-up of dust and debris. Once all the necessary tests are completed and your boiler meets our requirements, we will be happy to issue a Gas Safe certificate.

How long does it take to carry out?

We aim to service your boiler within 30-40 minutes.

Can I service my own boiler?

Boiler maintenance requires knowledge of complex systems and expertise, so it is best left to trained professionals. Attempting boiler maintenance without the appropriate training is hazardous and may void warranties and insurance.

How much does a boiler service cost?

Location, boiler model, and service provider can all affect the price of a boiler service. Boiler service in Newport, Shrewsbury, Telford and the surrounding areas can cost between £60 and £100 on average. It is essential to select a reputable company that provides quality service at a reasonable cost.

Are there any signs which indicate my boiler needs servicing?

Yes, there are several indicators that your boiler may require maintenance. These consist of:

- Unusual sounds, including pounding, whistling, and wheezing.

- Inconsistent flame patterns, such as yellow or fluttering flames as opposed to a constant blue flame.

- Variations in water pressure or temperature that occur frequently.

- Insufficient heating or hot water provision.

- Increases in energy costs for no evident purpose.

- Systematic errors or error codes displayed on the control interface of your boiler.

If you observe any of these symptoms, you should schedule a boiler service to identify and resolve the underlying problems.

Are there any legal requirements for boiler servicing?

There are no specific legal requirements to get your boiler serviced. However, landlords in the United Kingdom are required by law to ensure the safety and appropriate maintenance of gas appliances, including furnaces. A Gas Safe registered engineer must conduct an annual gas safety inspection to comply with these regulations.
