Boiler Servicing

Boiler Servicing

Our Gas Safe Registered engineers are fully trained to provide boiler services. We service all types of boilers including Gas, Oil, LPG, Biomass and Commercial boilers.


Gas Boiler Servicing


An annual boiler service is highly recommended by the Gas Safe Authority and boiler manufacturers to ensure gas safety. Furthermore, boiler servicing will also ensure a well maintained boiler, which will help  prevent nasty repair bills due to worn or overused parts. Boiler owners should also note that a boiler warranty may only be valid if the owner services the boiler each year, therefore failing to have annual boiler servicing could result in the boiler warranty becoming void. Our gas safe registered engineers provide boiler servicing for all different types of boilers, including standard domestic boilers and commercial boilers (see commercial pricing here).
We also specialise in boiler services for Oil, LPG, Biomass and Commercial Boilers.

What to expect?

There are many different types of boiler services so it’s always worth checking what you’re getting. Heppelthwaite the Red Van Plumbers offer a comprehensive service that takes approx 1 hour (depending on manufacturer’s guidelines) – it’s not just an analyser checker.

Check list

First of all do you know what to expect from a boiler service as not all boiler servicing is the same! Our customers benefit from a full comprehensive boiler service, which is much more than just a flue analyser check. As a guide please check out the list of tasks our engineers are likely to perform. However, not all boilers are the same so this may differ, we always follow the manufacturers guidelines.

Annual boiler servicing is recommended by the Gas Safe Authority

Furthermore, our customers benefit from a full report and an annual reminder for when your next boiler service is due. Please note that not all boiler servicing is the same. However, as registered gas engineers and accredited boiler installers, our gas engineers follow the manufacture guidelines, which may differ from the above.
