Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the benefits of an annual boiler service?

    An annual boiler service is essential for ensuring the safety, efficiency, and longevity of your heating system. It helps to prevent dangerous gas or carbon monoxide leaks, improves energy consumption to lower heating bills, and reduces the risk of costly breakdowns. Regular maintenance can also extend the life of your boiler, keep you compliant with warranty requirements, and provide peace of mind. For landlords, it fulfills legal safety obligations towards tenants. Overall, it’s a wise investment that safeguards your home’s heating performance and your family’s comfort.

  • What should I do if my boiler stops working?

    First, check the basics: ensure your boiler has power and that the thermostat is set correctly. If the problem persists, contact a your trusted Gas Safe registered engineer or reach out to us at Rowlen immediately for a professional diagnosis and repair. We keep our lines open 24/7 and will provide honest advice and solutions for all your boiler issues.

  • Can I perform any boiler maintenance myself?

    Attempting to do the maintenance yourself can seem tempting as it doesn’t require you to spend, although it may result in further costly damage, safety hazards, and worse–a broken boiler.

    Have your boiler serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer. The job of handling any gas appliances can only be legally done by service providers with Gas Safe certifications. They are trained and have the license to fix, repair, service, and even perform boiler installation, all the while observing correct and compliant gas safety procedures.
