When it comes to the safety of your family, you cannot take any chances. With this in mind, it is important that your boiler is checked on a regular basis to ensure that it is working as it should do. Just like your car which requires an annual MOT the same applies to your gas boiler, it needs to be checked professionally each year.
What happens in a gas boiler service?
When you have your gas boiler serviced the first thing you must do is ensure that it is done professionally. Your gas boiler must be serviced by an engineer that is authorised and regulated by the Gas Safe register, just like us here at Green Boilers & Heating.
When your engineer arrives at your Doncaster property here are some of the things that he will do as part of your gas boiler service.
– Fire the boiler up
This will allow for the engineer to check for any working faults.
– A visual inspection
Your engineer will check your boiler thoroughly to ensure that your boiler meets all standards. They will look for any corrosion or leaks. They will also visually check the flame.
– Flue check
The flue will be looked at to ensure that it is safely installed and that there are no obstructions.
– Component check
The engineer will remove the boiler case and check the components are working correctly. Such components are the main injector, spark probe and the burner.
The inside of the boiler will be cleaned by your engineer as part of your boiler service.
– Gas pressure
Your boiler needs to be operating at the right pressure and this will be checked by the engineer.
In total, the service will take around 30-45 minutes depending on the age of your boiler. Once the service is complete the engineer will give you a gas safety report which will show the findings of the service.
The benefits of a gas boiler service
There are many benefits to a gas boiler service which include:
It is more than likely that your gas boiler warranty requires that you have your boiler serviced every year. If you do not do this, then the chances are your warranty will be void. It is important that you check this with your boiler manufacturer.
Your boiler service will pick up any faults that might be emerging with your boiler. It is always much better to catch these early and get them dealt with or further down the line you could have much bigger problems costing much more money to fix.
Keeping your boiler in good condition through an annual service will ensure that your boiler is performing at its best and most efficient which in the long run is a wise financial investment.
