These days when a new boiler is fitted all manufacturers insist upon a regular annual boiler service to comply with their warranty terms and conditions.
It is vital therefore to arrange a service and keep your records updated.
A boiler service may consist of a replacement gasket or heat exchanger seal if it is required for safety or stipulated by a manufacturer, this part is not covered under warranty as it would have to be removed for servicing but is not normally needed to be replaced in the first few years anyway.
Some manufacturers have slightly different servicing requirements and could just consist of a flue gas reading and visual inspection, others may insist on a full strip down and clean which would often be more costly.
Our boiler service charges start at £69.00.
Always make sure your boiler service engineer is Gas Safe registered, ask to see the photo ID card and check it on the gas safe register website here.
