Why a boiler service is important
Having your boiler break down is always a nightmare. Not only does it take your gas and central heating system out of commission, but it's also bound to derail the rest of your day until you can get someone in to conduct a boiler repair which can cost you a pretty penny depending on what went wrong.
While it may seem tempting to avoid a service for some short term savings, it is highly likely to come back to bite you in the long run if it breaks and you end up needing a new boiler installed.
Safety - When dealing with an appliance such as a boiler, safety is key. While a new or well-maintained boiler is safe, it is also good to keep in mind that some aspects of its operation are inherently unstable and prone to malfunction.
In a worst-case scenario, a broken boiler can even pose a safety risk, such as in the case of a carbon monoxide leak. This type of malfunction is not uncommon and is a silent killer that can be hard to detect. So long as you have your boiler regularly serviced, however, this will not be an issue. That's why a boiler service is important for both your health and your peace of mind.
Prevent breakdowns- Damage to a boiler may not always be obvious either. It is common for boilers to slowly break over time even when you think you are careful not to damage them.
If not serviced before damage accumulates, then there is a possibility it will suffer a catastrophic failure that is either impossible to repair, or the boiler repair will cost more than it is worth. In such a case, you will be paying far more to install a replacement boiler than what you otherwise would have spent by having it serviced.
Keeping heating bills low - It's not just about preventing your boiler from breaking down, though. Equally important is ensuring that the boiler is running at peak efficiency to keep your heating bills low.
Often your boiler will be seemingly working fine when in actuality, there may be something wrong with it that is impeding the boiler's performance, causing it to use more fuel than it needs, thus increasing your gas bill.
This is especially the case when it comes to older boilers as the internal parts degrade over time. You can often tell when this is the case as your central heating system will not be able to keep up with the cold winter months.
Warranty- Our experienced Gas Safe registered engineers can identify such faults and perform a boiler repair or service to ensure they are running safely and smoothly.
And if your boiler does break, then you are going to want to cash in on that warranty no doubt; if so, then you are going to be glad you had regular servicing for your boiler as most warranties require regular boiler services to remain valid, which is another way regular servicing can save you money in the long run.
We also offer boiler installation services if our engineers find that your boiler is too broken to fix. If you think that your boiler needs servicing or a repair, then be sure to get in touch with our team for a quote from our experts.
What happens during a boiler service?
If you are in Norwich or Norfolk, when you call for a boiler service, one of our Gas Safe boiler engineers will come to your home and get the job done quickly and efficiently. And remember, it is important always to confirm the qualifications of the engineers you let through your door. Simply ask to see their ID, and our engineers will more than happily comply.
Visual inspection - The first step will be a visual inspection of the boiler in question. The engineer will check whether or not everything is where it should be and built to the manufacturer's specifications.
While doing this, they will be removing the boiler casing to check the insides as well. During the service, the engineer is not only looking for physically broken parts, but they are also cleaning certain areas such as flue terminals to ensure there are no blockages due to the buildup of residue.
Flue check - The next step is what's known as a flue check. A boiler flue is the part of your boiler that is responsible for the ventilation of harmful gases produced due to the boiler burning gas and oils to heat the water.
An example of these gases is carbon monoxide. So it is vital that this part of the boiler functions properly for the sake of health and safety as a leaking flue can result in harmful gasses being released indoors. Often the repair for a faulty flue is just to clean it out as it is one of the parts most prone to getting blocked.
Gas pressure checks - With the flue check done, the engineer will perform a standard gas pressure check. This is a simple check to see if your boiler is providing enough gas pressure to adequately supply all of the appliances it is connected to, such as the various heating systems around the house.
Boiler fired up - Finally, the engineer will put everything back together on the boiler and turn it back on for the fire up check. This check looks for any obvious problems in its running that may indicate a more subtle failure in its systems.
Should the engineer see no issues here, then the boiler will have passed its service should, in most circumstances, function perfectly fine until it next needs servicing. The whole process should take less than an hour in total, depending on the model of the boiler.
