What is a gas boiler service and why is it so important?
There are countless people who do not have their gas boilers serviced. Landlords and local authorities are legally obliged to have the boilers in their property portfolio serviced annually, but homeowners face no such requirements, and many appear content to hope for the best and to leave their boiler unchecked for many years.
Homeowners may worry about a gas boiler service cost and so put it off but this can put people in real danger – broken boilers can leak deadly gases such as carbon monoxide, or can even explode or set alight.
What happens when I service my gas boiler?
When you arrange a gas boiler service with 24|7 Home Rescue, a Gas Safe engineer will come to your home to fully and thoroughly inspect your boiler.
A boiler service is not a quick job and doesn’t simply involve taking a quick glance at the appliance – the engineer will want to inspect and clean the boiler thoroughly to discover if there are any underlying issues or damaged components that require a repair.
What will the engineer check?
The engineer will perform a series of checks on your boiler. These include:
An emissions check to find out if the boiler is leaking any dangerous gases
A flue check to ensure the boiler is ventilated properly
The pipework of the boiler, to determine if it meets recommended safety standards
The overall boiler installation, to ensure the appliance was installed in a safe manner
A control check to ensure the boiler’s controls work properly
A visual inspection for leaks, rust and corrosion
A pressure check, to ensure the water and gas pressure of the boiler is as it should be
