Your boiler is a hugely important part of your home. Even during summer, when a majority of people turn their heating off, most homeowners still use their boiler every day to heat water for showers, baths and other household activities.
Considering how hard your boiler works during the year, it is important to make sure that you book an annual gas boiler service. By doing this, you can ensure that your central heating system is working efficiently throughout the year, and rest easy in the knowledge that you have a reliable boiler that won't let you down during winter.
Regular boiler servicing is also important for safety reasons, as a boiler engineer will be able to identify and fix any damage, issues or problems that could cause a deadly carbon monoxide leak. You can read more about keeping your gas appliances safe in our Gas Safety infographic.

During your boiler service, a qualified gas boiler engineer will:
Carry out a visual inspection of the boiler and all related areas (radiators etc.) to make sure that they adhere to current safety regulations and standards.
Clean away any debris or dirt in the system, and repair or replace any damaged parts. (These parts may be chargeable)
Remove the boiler casing and check all internal components (such as the heat exchanger, burner and main injector).
Check that the spark/sensor probe is clean.
Conduct a ‘gas tightness’ test, to check for dangerous carbon monoxide leaks.
Test the gas valve with a flue gas analyser, to make sure that the boiler is combusting efficiently.
Check that the flue terminals are free from obstruction and that internal flue components are sealed correctly.
Turn the boiler on, to make sure that it is working properly.
The service should take around one hour. When the engineer is finished, they should present you with a completed Gas Safe form, which will contain details of the tasks they have carried out.
The cost of a boiler service depends on a number of factors. These include the level of competition in the area, what time of year it is, and general market prices. The 'best price' may differ radically from town to town, with engineers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, often using different pricing structures.
For this reason, the easiest way to get an accurate idea of how much a boiler service will cost, is to compare quotes from a number of engineers in your area. Simply fill out our quick quotes form to view instant, online prices from local engineers today!
