WHY SHOULD YOU GET YOUR BOILER SERVICED?
The importance of carrying out yearly servicing of your boiler cannot be over-stated. In the same way as a car needs to be serviced regularly, or your dentist needs to check your teeth, so too does your boiler and any other gas appliance in your home.
All too often we are called out to boilers which have not been properly maintained and the result is that homeowners are often left with substantial repair costs, or even having to replace boilers, which could have been avoided had regular maintenance have been carried out.
CHECKLIST OF SERVICING
In order to help make sure you are not left with a boiler unsatisfactorily serviced, here are the main things an engineer should be checking and servicing:
☑ Gas pressure and flow rate is correct.
☑ Safety devices are working correctly.
☑ Internal main components are not showing signs of damage or corrosion..
☑ Flue and combustion gases are safe and fall within permitted levels.
☑ Various seals within the boiler are intact.
☑ Water and gas pipework-make sure there are no leaks.
☑ Electrical connections are properly made.
