Why a boiler service is important


A boiler service gives the engineer the opportunity to identify safety issues such as a carbon monoxide leak. If you're concerned that your boiler may not be working correctly, for example the flame is orange rather than blue, you should get in touch with a Gas Safe engineer even if your annual service is not yet due.

Keep heating bills low

As a boiler ages it can become less efficient which means it needs to use more fuel to heat your home which will cost you more money. An annual service will ensure all the components are in the best possible condition and deliver a higher level of efficiency for longer.

Prevent breakdowns

A boiler service will help keep your energy bills down and also spot a potential fault before it happens, saving you from a boiler breakdown and a hefty repair bill.


Your boiler will usually include a manufacturer's warranty of between 1 - 15 years which in most cases is only valid as long as you get the boiler serviced by a Gas Safe engineer every year.
