Ensure your Kensington property stays warm and safe with Rowlen’s expert boiler servicing. Our Gas Safe heating engineers efficiently carry out their jobs with the customers’ welfare in mind.

Here’s what you can expect from Rowlen’s regular servicing in Kensington:

Visual Inspection

Controls Testing

Testing your boiler’s controls and thermostat to ensure they’re accurately set is a vital part of our service. Properly functioning controls are key to efficient heating and energy usage, which can enhance the comfort of your Kensington home while helping to keep energy bills low.

Issuance of Gas Safety Certificates

After the service, we provide a Gas Safety certificate, confirming your boiler’s compliance with the highest standards of safety and operation. This certification is essential for ensuring the safety of your Kensington property and meeting legal requirements for landlords.


If our engineers identify any major issues requiring repair, we’ll keep you fully informed throughout the process, offering you the option to have repairs carried out immediately or at a later date if parts need to be ordered for replacement.
