There’s a lot of work that goes into servicing your boiler so we thought we’d explain in a little more detail exactly what we do to make sure your boiler lasts for years to come.

Our engineers will inform you should any aspect of our checks not pass our stringent tests or where they do not meet building and safety legislation.

Typically most boilers will require servicing annually to ensure their continued smooth operation during their life. In some instances servicing your boiler each year is a legal requirement.

Are there benefits to servicing my boiler?

One of the biggest benefits is to ensure the smooth and efficient running of your boiler. In some cases our engineers can quickly remedy where a boiler is operating inefficiently, an inefficient boiler could be costing you money, certainly more than the price of a service.
