What is a boiler service?

A regular boiler service is really important for making sure your boiler is operating efficiently and safely.

Our gas safe engineers are trained to the highest standards to effectively service your boiler and keep your home warm.

A boiler service involves a number of key checks. One of our gas safe registered engineers will visit your home to carry out the following:

Visual inspection -Our engineers will check for any corrosion, leaks and the boiler flame to make sure it meets the latest boiler standards.

Internal inspection – At this stage, our engineers will remove the casing and make sure all the internal components are operating effectively, such as the spark probe, burner and heat exchanger.

Flue check – Our engineers will then make sure there are no obstructions to the flue terminal and it’s safely fitted.

Boiler controls – We’ll make sure there are no faults with the boiler control system

Pressure check – Before testing the boiler, we’ll check the boiler is operating at the correct pressure levels

Working condition – Finally, we’ll make sure the boiler is operating correctly and there are no lingering faults.

A complete overhaul of my central heating system was done by Scott and Toby who were exemplary in their professionalism, customer service and standard of work completed. I can wholeheartedly recommend Martindales as the standard of work coupled with highly competitive pricing equals no need to look elsewhere. Thank you again Ryan and team.

New boiler installed and pipe work re-routed and now up and running within a couple of days. The guys were prompt, polite, accommodating, and worked hard throughout both days, (and in particular Scott); to ensure everything was completed on schedule. Good work ethics and team culture was recognised throughout. The boiler (a Viessmann Vitoden 100) is a Which? best buy brand, complete with a 10 year warranty, and Ryan and his team are approved installers, so I am looking forward to years of trouble free service! Price for work was competitive and within my budget. Not quite 5 stars due to a few minor points, but will definitely recommend Ryan and his team, to friends and family. Overall a good job done - thanks.

Boiler Servicing

Why get your boiler serviced?

There are a number of big benefits to having your boiler properly serviced regularly by Gas Safe registered engineers. This includes:

Safety

This is the most important benefit of having your boiler regularly serviced. Our engineers will check for any critical safety issues, such as carbon monoxide leaks to keep your home safe.

Reduce your bills

An inefficient boiler that isn’t working to optimum standards can use up more fuel, which will hit your pocket. A regular service will make sure your boiler is running efficiently to keep your bills lower.

Future proofing

If you leave boiler issues for too long, it can end up costing you more in repairs. A regular service will allow us to spot any potential faults before they become a bigger issue.

Maintain warranty

Some warranties are only valid if your boiler is regularly serviced by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. Our annual maintenance service will help to keep your boiler warranty valid.

What boilers can you service?

Our engineers are trained to service all types of boiler makes and types, this includes gas, combi and electric boilers, as well as all major brands such as Worcester Bosch, Vaillant, Baxi, Ideal and more.

 

How often should a boiler be serviced?

Ideally, a boiler should be serviced annually. The reason for this is that it means your boiler is regularly being maintained and tested, and it helps to keep your boiler warranty valid.

It’s also best to get your boiler serviced during the summer/early autumn months. This will make sure you go into the winter months feeling confident that your home will be heated when the seasons get cooler.
