Booking A Boiler Service In Belfast
Why is it important to service your boiler annually?
Servicing your boiler annually can help to increase its lifespan and keep it running safely and efficiently. If you look after your heating system, it will lower your gas bill on a longer run and save your money.
When doing a boiler service, a heating engineer can detect any small issues and get them fixed to avoid any serious issues and expensive breakdowns in future.
Another benefit of regular annual checks is keeping your boiler manufacturers warranty. Unfortunately if you missed your annual boiler service and you have boiler thats locking out or your boiler not working then your warranty may be invalid. You will need to arrange a boiler engineer to visit your property for inspection.
It is also important to have your boiler checked to avoid the risk of a gas leak. We recommend to install a carbon monoxide alarm in every room with gas appliances to keep you and your family safe.
Gas boiler service: what does it usually include?
During an annual boiler safety check our gas safe engineer usually carry out inspections of the boilers controls to make sure that they are working correctly. All internal main components are checked too, including heat exchanger, burner and spark electrode.
Flue and combustion releases sealants are checked also.
All water and gas pipework are visually inspected to ensure there is no leak.
Boiler gas and pressure flow are checked and balanced if needed.
Electrical connections and safety devices are inspected.
Then our engineer will perform a gas tightness test to confirm there are no gas leaks.
When is the best time to service your boiler?
Many people get their boilers serviced during winter months. The heating season is usually busy and gas engineers are booked for boiler breakdowns apart from regular servicing.
We recommend to prepare for heating season beforehand and get your boiler serviced in summer. During warm months boiler engineers have better availability and you could easily prepare your heating system for winter, reducing the risk of a boiler breakdown during colder month and staying with no heat.
