Boiler Service FAQ

At our heating and plumbing company, we understand the importance of regular boiler servicing. However, we also know that many homeowners have questions about the process and benefits of servicing their boiler. That’s why we’ve put together this comprehensive FAQ to help answer some of the most frequently asked questions.

What Is Involved in a Boiler Service?

During a boiler service, a Gas Safe registered engineer will visit your home at a pre-arranged time to inspect, test and clean the main parts of your boiler. This includes checking the safety devices, inspecting and cleaning the heat exchanger, and testing the flue gases to ensure the boiler is operating safely and efficiently. Your engineer will also be able to spot any issues with how your boiler is performing and give advice on how to resolve them.

How Long Does It Take to Service a Boiler?

Most boiler services take around 30 minutes to complete. They’re easy to arrange and quick to carry out, so cause minimum inconvenience with maximum benefit!

Who Can Service My Boiler?

For any work on your boiler, from installation to repair to servicing, you need a Gas Safe registered heating engineer. While some plumbers may be qualified to work on boilers, not all are, and it’s crucial to ensure you’re using a qualified professional to carry out any work on your boiler.

Does a Boiler Service Validate My Manufacturer’s Warranty?

Almost always, yes. A boiler service is important for ensuring your manufacturer’s warranty remains valid, but it’s also crucial for maximising the health of your boiler anyway, and can help lengthen the lifespan of your central heating system.

When Is the Best Time to Service My Boiler?

We can service your boiler at any time of year that’s convenient for you. However, many people prefer to arrange a service at the end of summer, so everything is working as it should be for winter. This is also a good time to clean and inspect your boiler, ensuring it’s all ready for the colder weather ahead.

What Are the Benefits of a Boiler Service?

There are lots of benefits to getting your boiler serviced! One of the main ones is that the chance of it breaking down is reduced following a service. Your engineer will be able to spot any emerging issues before they become big ones that can cause your boiler to power down. Additionally, having your boiler cleaned during the service removes dust and debris, helping your boiler work more efficiently. This has the advantage of saving you money as the more energy-efficient your boiler is, the less you’ll pay in your heating bills! The final advantage of a boiler service is that it will often cause your boiler to perform more effectively, giving better heat and providing hot water faster, thanks to being cleaned and checked over inside and out.

How Often Should I Service My Boiler?

We advise customers to have their boiler serviced every year, both to keep their manufacturer’s warranty intact and to keep their boiler working effectively. Parts wear out over time, and dust and debris builds up, so by having an annual service, these things can be tackled, and your boiler can be kept healthy for longer.
