Gas Boiler Servicing
An annual gas 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.
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.
