Unvented Cylinder Service

It is highly recommended that you have an annual cylinder service to ensure safety and to prevent nasty repair bills, as the price for a new boiler usually runs into the thousands. If you still have a boiler warranty, for instance on a Gledhill Cylinder that usually comes with a 25 year warranty, then make sure you check the small print as it may be a requirement to have an annual service to validate the warranty. The Red Van Plumbers have serviced thousands of cylinders and boilers for homeowners, landlords and commercial properties in local areas such as West London, High Wycombe, Maidenhead, Windsor and Wooburn.
It is recommended you get both your boiler and cylinder serviced at the same time by one of our trusted expert plumbers, and you could save £30 off the total amount by combining the 2 services.
