First Things First

Relax. These things can be fixed.

However, if you are not under warranty you will have a costly emergency repair bill. That is why you should obtain professional assistance at the first sign of a problem with your boiler. To avoid a situation like this, make sure you get your boiler serviced to ensure the boiler’s longevity.

What Happens During A Boiler Service

A Gas Safe engineer will visit your home and do a visual inspection on your boiler to check that everything is operational or if there are any faults. The engineer will then remove the casing and inspect the components and clean the boiler when finished. This process normally takes between 30 to 40 minutes. Most traditional boilers run on gas, which means only a Gas Safe engineer assesses your boiler, a member of our team will be able to help.
