Boiler Service FAQs

We hope you can find the answers to your questions below or call our friendly team on 020 8395 8616.

  • What Is a boiler service and why is it necessary?

    A boiler service is a comprehensive check and maintenance process performed by a qualified technician to ensure that your home’s boiler is operating safely and efficiently. The necessity of this service lies in its ability to prevent potential hazards, such as gas leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning, and to extend the lifespan of your boiler.

    • Prevention of hazards: Regular servicing helps identify and fix potential safety issues.
    • Efficiency: A well-maintained boiler operates more efficiently, reducing energy costs.
    • Longevity: Regular maintenance can significantly prolong the life of your boiler.
  • How often should a boiler be serviced?

    It is recommended that a boiler be serviced annually to ensure it remains in good working condition. This frequency is also often a requirement for maintaining the warranty of the boiler. Annual servicing helps identify issues before they become major problems, thus saving on costly repairs.

    • Annual servicing: This frequency is crucial for maintaining safety and efficiency.
    • Warranty requirements: Many manufacturers require annual servicing to uphold the warranty.
    • Early problem detection: Regular checks help in identifying and resolving issues promptly.
  • What does a typical boiler service include?

    A typical boiler service includes several key checks and tasks. The technician will inspect the boiler and its components, test the functionality of the thermostat and safety devices, check for leaks or corrosion, clean important parts, and ensure the system is running efficiently. This thorough inspection ensures all aspects of the boiler are in good condition.

    • Inspection of components: Includes checking for leaks, corrosion, and damage.
    • Testing safety devices: Ensures all safety mechanisms are functioning correctly.
    • Cleaning and efficiency check: Vital for maintaining optimal performance.
  • Can I service my boiler myself?

    Servicing a boiler yourself is not advisable unless you are a qualified technician. Boilers involve complex mechanisms and dealing with gas, which can be hazardous. It’s essential to hire a professional who has the expertise and tools to safely and effectively conduct the service.

    • Safety risks: Self-servicing can lead to accidents and hazards.
    • Professional expertise: Technicians have the necessary skills and tools.
    • Compliance with regulations: Professional servicing ensures adherence to safety standards and regulations.
  • What are the signs that my boiler needs servicing?

    There are several signs that your boiler may need servicing. These include unusual noises, such as banging or whistling, a decrease in efficiency or heating capability, the presence of leaks, and any error messages displayed on the boiler. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to arrange for a service promptly to avoid further issues.

    • Unusual noises: Indicate potential internal issues.
    • Decreased efficiency: Suggests the boiler is not operating optimally.
    • Leaks and error messages: Are clear indicators that a service is necessary.
  • How long does a boiler service take?

    A standard boiler service usually takes between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the boiler’s condition and the complexity of the service required. If the technician discovers any issues that need additional attention, the service might take longer.

    • Typical duration: 30 minutes to an hour.
    • Condition-dependent: Service duration may vary based on the boiler’s state.
    • Additional repairs: May extend the service time.
  • Is a boiler service covered by home Insurance?

    Boiler service is generally not covered under standard home insurance policies. However, some insurance providers offer special home emergency cover or boiler breakdown cover as an add-on, which might include the cost of servicing. It’s important to check your insurance policy details or consult with your provider.

    • Standard policies: Typically do not cover boiler service.
    • Special cover: Some insurers offer additional options for boiler servicing.
    • Policy review: Essential to understand what is included in your insurance.
  • What are the risks of not servicing my boiler?

    Neglecting boiler servicing can lead to several risks, including reduced efficiency, higher energy bills, breakdowns, and potential safety hazards like gas leaks or carbon monoxide emission. Regular servicing is crucial to mitigate these risks and ensure the safe operation of your boiler.

    • Reduced efficiency: Leading to increased energy consumption.
    • Safety hazards: Including the risk of gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning.
    • Increased repair costs: Due to potential breakdowns and major faults.
  • Can a boiler service improve my home’s energy efficiency?

    Yes, a boiler service can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency. A well-maintained boiler operates more efficiently, which means it uses less energy to heat your home, leading to reduced energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint.

    • Optimal operation: A serviced boiler runs more efficiently.
    • Lower energy bills: Due to reduced energy consumption.
    • Environmental impact: Improved efficiency results in a lower carbon footprint.
  • Do I have to wait in for my boiler service?

    Understanding that modern life is often busy, we provide a specific time slot for the engineer’s visit so you don’t need to wait at home unnecessarily. This approach ensures convenience and minimises disruption to your schedule.

  • How much does an annual boiler service cost?

    Since most home insurance policies don’t cover boiler service costs, it’s understandable to be concerned about the price.

    The average cost of a gas boiler service in 2024 is about £105+VAT to £130+VAT, depending on your location and boiler model. Here at Rowlen, we can service any combo boiler, heat-only boilers, and system boilers. We can also inspect your central heating system at the same time to stop any unwanted boiler breakdowns.

    This is a small price to pay for a working boiler and peace of mind, considering the price of replacement parts, let alone a replacement boiler.

    Remember, boiler maintenance addresses small problems before they become major. These issues, when ignored, can escalate into major repairs. In the worst-case scenario, they can even necessitate the purchase of a new boiler.

    If you want additional protection, you can also purchase a boiler cover package.

    Regular boiler maintenance addresses small problems before they become major. It also ensures the safety of your boiler, verifying that it isn’t emitting harmful gases.

    Another critical aspect of boiler servicing is its impact on your warranty. Many manufacturers mandate have your boiler serviced by gas a gas safe registered engineer as a condition of the warranty. Failing to have yor boiler serviced can invalidate this warranty.

    Considering most boilers warranties can extend up to 10 years, it’s a wise decision to keep up with annual services. This diligence not only keeps your warranty intact but also ensures you’re covered for free repairs

  • Do you offer one-off boiler service?

    Yes, we absolutely offer one-off boiler service no boiler cover needed! We don’t sign you into a annual contract.

  • Should I service my old boiler?

    Deciding whether to replace your boiler and having a new boiler installed depends on several factors:

    1. Age of the Boiler: If your boiler is over 15 years old, it might be time to consider a replacement. Older boilers are less efficient and more prone to breakdowns have you had a regular service.
    2. Frequency of Repairs: Frequent breakdowns and repairs are a sign that your boiler is nearing the end of its lifespan. If the cost of repairs is consistently high, investing in a new boiler might be more economical in the long run.
    3. Efficiency Levels

    Regular servicing helps maintain boiler efficiency, prevents breakdowns, and ensures safety. However, if your boiler is old, inefficient, or costly to repair, we can help you with your new boiler installation.
