What does a boiler service include?

Look after your boiler, and your boiler will look after you. This unassuming piece of kit is responsible for all the heating and hot water in most homes, so it’s essential to give it a bit of TLC every now and then.

Regular boiler servicing is vital to make sure that your boiler is running safely and efficiently. Poorly maintained or faulty boilers present a serious health risk to you and your family, because they can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.

You should book a boiler service with a qualified gas engineer once a year. And when you're searching for one, make sure they're Gas Safe registered. It's a legal requirement, but more importantly it means you can be sure they’ve got the right skills for the job.

Your engineer should check that the following parts of your boiler are all working exactly as they should:

  • Gas pressure and flow, including the right gas-air burning mix
  • Electrical connections
  • Electrodes
  • Fans
  • Safety devices including seals
  • Condensate pipe and trap
  • Internal cleanliness
