During boiler maintenance our engineer carries out a multitude of tests to ensure your boiler is safe and in fully working condition.
Tests our engineer carries out on your boiler typically include:
- Checking your boiler’s gas pressure
- A flue test to ensure your boiler is not leaking carbon monoxide
- Flame testing. A red or orange flame indicates a problem
- Cleaning your boiler’s condense trap since this builds up grime over the year since you boiler was last serviced
We recommend you receive boiler maintenance at least once a year. Boiler servicing is a preventative measure and helps avoid expensive emergency call-out rates or the need of a boiler replacement.
As luck has it, a boiler in need of a service is likely to breakdown during the most inconvenient of times, often in the middle of winter when you have guests! Going without hot water and heating during the depths of winter is usually enough to convince anyone of the need for annual boiler servicing.
Annual servicing also means you boiler runs more efficiently. In turn you save money on your central heating and hot water bills. A boiler in need of servicing may also be leaking carbon monoxide, thus posing an immediate threat to the lives of your family. Carbon monoxide leakage is easily detected and then corrected during boiler servicing. Our engineer will also ensure your carbon monoxide detectors are all in working order.
