Boiler repair and servicing
Boiler Repairs and Servicing
You can expect a good boiler to last 10 to 12 years with regular maintenance and servicing. Look after your appliance and it will serve you well. A boiler service should be performed every 12-months by a Gas Safe accredited engineer, such as the team at Finbra. Servicing is mess-free and straight forward, and takes around 40 minutes to carry out. And if you book and pay for your service with us online, we'll give you 10% off the price. That's hard to beat.
What To Expect From an Annual Boiler Service
It’s a legal requirement in the UK that all boiler services are performed by a Gas Safe registered engineer. A service is an extensive check of all the boiler components to ensure that the system is completely safe to use. A written report is provided and any problems highlighted and explained. Our team advises of any potential issues that might occur before the next service is due.
The following processes occur at an annual boiler service:
The removal of the boiler cover in order to expose the interior
A thorough check of all pipes for leaks
Parts closely inspected for wear or corrosion
Gas pressure checked and recorded
The flue and ventilation checked
A test of the pilot light
Each seal checked for corrosion
Replacement of the boiler cover
An official report filed in for your records
Tidy of the work area
While our experienced engineer is servicing your boiler, any wear and tear issues are noticed. At this point we can let you know if something is likely to occur in the coming months. It’s a great early warning process letting you know that repairs are due. This way you can plan for work rather than have an emergency happen when you’re not expecting it.
