Boiler Service – Prices and Quotes – Have Your Boiler Serviced Cheaply & Safely

By Rob Hull on July 23, 2010

Boilers, of course, come in a variety of different shapes and sizes and a variety of different fuel types. Domestic boilers nowadays are typically gas-fired, condensing boiler models but oil, gas and LPG (“Liquefied Petroleum Gas”) boilers all have their own control characteristics.

It is important, therefore, that boiler repairs and boiler service are carried out by a properly qualified individual. In the case of a gas boiler for example maintenance must, by law, be performed by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

Boiler repair and “routine” boiler service is available from a number of reputable sources. You may like to take out a boiler maintenance contract – typically for 12 or 24 months at a time – which covers parts and labour costs in the event of an emergency boiler breakdown.

Indeed the cost of a contract may be covered by the cost of boiler repairs resulting from a single boiler breakdown. Do, however, look for a contract or policy that stipulates no callout charge. The other alternative of course is to make a one-off payment in the event of breakdown.

In either case it is advisable to have a full annual boiler service carried out by a qualified engineer – preferably during the summer when your boiler is not in use – to make sure your boiler is in good working order when you need it most. Regular boiler maintenance of this type can identify poor combustion or similar problems by analysing flue gases, ensuring your personal safety as well as the energy efficiency of your boiler.

"I found your help in sourcing a new boiler excellent. I was contacted immediately by two of the contacts suggested by you and was able to arrange to have the new boiler fitted at a very fair price within three days of contacting you. Thank you for helping me to resolve a very pressing problem so efficiently".
