If you have arranged a boiler service, you probably wonder how long it will take to get the boiler fixed. There are a lot of things that are involved in checking a boiler to ensure it is safe and in working condition.
Why Service Your Boiler?
It is important to have your boiler serviced annually. This will ensure that it will remain efficient and safe for the year ahead. Make sure that a Gas Safe registered engineer checks your boiler as this is a legal requirement. You can ask them upon arrival for proof of certification and if you have any doubts you can directly contact Gas Safe to confirm any credential for an attending engineer. It is important to have a properly maintained system to ensure it is safe and to keep heating bills low and reduce your carbon footprint.
So, How Long Does a Boiler Service Take?
It usually takes approximately 45 minutes to one hour to service a boiler by a Gas Safe registered engineer. This is because of the number of things that they have to check, for example, checking the boiler sensors, combustion chamber, the safety devices and so on. The essential parts have to be cleaned to remove any harmful substances such as carbon monoxide. This will ensure that the boiler is safe and will run more efficiently. If the boiler service is completed thoroughly, it will highlight any safety issues. This will give you peace of mind for when the heating turns on. The duration of the boiler service will vary depending on the make and model of the boiler. For instance, whether it is conventional or combi. Its age should also be considered, as it affects how long it takes to service if various parts need to be restored.
Once the service is over, we will provide you with a service report. This entails the date of service, the mandatory safety checks as well as any other work that has been carried out. Always check if the information is correct and has been signed by the heating engineer. Ask them any queries you may have if you need clarification for anything.

1. To keep your family safe
If your boiler is faulty, it can be extremely dangerous as it can lead to water, fires and gas leaks. It can also leak a poisonous gas known as carbon monoxide. Gas leaks can often go undetected, so an experienced Gas Safe engineer must check the quality of your boiler.
2. Increases your boiler durability
If you have an annual boiler service, it will help detect any issues promptly. If the problems are left without service, over time it will worsen, meaning you will have costly boiler repairs.
3. It reduces energy consumption
Gradually, soot can build up in your boiler, which causes the boiler to overwork to perform the simple task of keeping the house warm. This uses more energy from your boiler system which will be quite costly to your energy bills. When your boiler is examined, the internal parts are cleaned and the soot is disposed of to ensure that your boiler is working properly.
