Gas Boiler Service


It is highly recommended that you have an annual boiler service to ensure safety and to prevent nasty repair bills. If you still have a boiler warranty, then make sure you check the small print as it may be a requirement to have an annual service to validate the warranty. Heppelthwaite the Red Van Plumbers provide boiler services for homeowners, landlords and commercial properties.
We also specialise in boiler services for Oil, LPG, Biomass and Commercial Boilers. Click here to see pricing.

What to expect?

There are many different types of boiler 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

Below is a list of tasks our gas engineers are likely to perform. However, as not all boilers are the same this may differ. We always follow the manufacturers guidelines.

  • A visual inspection of the boiler, boiler location, system and condense
  • Visual checks to ensure internal flue components are sealed properly
  • Check and record control settings (timer / stats)
  • Visual inspection of external flue and terminal
  • Air intake quality checked prior to removing the case
  • Boiler fired up to identify any faults
  • Check polarity and voltage reading / fuse rating
  • Boiler casing removed and all main boiler components are checked
  • Visual checks to ensure flue terminals are not obstructed
  • Fan tested
  • Safe isolation of electrical, gas/oil and water supply
  • Visual inspection of the ventilation (path and size)
  • Clean heat exchanger / burner
  • Clean condensate trap and change seals
  • Inside casing surfaces are cleaned
  • Check inlet and working gas pressure
  • Check, record and adjust CO2 reading
  • Boiler parts cleaned where needed
  • Electrical bonding check
  • Gas valve adjusted to check that the burner is working properly
  • Gas tightness test to ensure no leaks
