Boiler Servicing London

Boiler Repairs and Breakdowns in London

There is no getting away from the fact that your boiler has to be serviced at least once a year so that it continues to work properly.

Servicing can help to avert any potential problems before they occur.

The best time to have your boiler serviced is in the summer or early autumn months when demand is lower. This will give you peace of mind that probably the most important piece of equipment in your home is in full working order and ready to serve you through the cold winter period.

What does a boiler service involve?

As well as dealing with any problems that you report and replacing any worn parts, the CORGI boiler engineer will carry out an internal and external inspection to check for visible damage to the boiler. If any damage is found then the relevant replacement or repair will be made and this will usually be charged outside the price of your boiler service charge.

Throughout the year you should never ignore any problems that arise with your boiler, even if your service is just a few months or even weeks away. If you notice any of the following then you should call your engineer immediately:

1. The temperature and pressure that the boiler normally operates under suddenly drops or changes drastically
2. The water level falls to an unusually low level
3. The low water cut off does not work properly when it is tested
4. There is a change in the temperature or pressure of the feed water

Boiler Servicing: Manufacturers Demand it

The majority of boiler manufacturers recommend an annual service, and in many cases the warranty of the boiler is dependent on a service being conducted.

Foregoing a boiler service simply cannot and must not be an option. It may seem like an expense ill afforded, but it will offer serious cost savings in the future should anything go wrong resulting in the need for a new boiler.

If your boiler starts to function below its normal level of efficiency then it will usually mean that it needs servicing sooner rather than later. Don't wait until winter to check your boiler, and don't wait until your annual service date if you notice anything unusual. Contact us as soon as you notice any signs of inefficiency so that the boiler remains as efficient - and more importantly as safe - as possible.
