As with all heating appliances, your gas boiler needs to be serviced once a year, as recommended by the manufacturers, to ensure that it is operating efficiently and safely. An efficient boiler is more environmentally friendly, leading to lower gas consumption, therefore lowering your bills.
The safety aspect is even more critical as a regularly serviced boiler will operate safely i.e. the gas will burn correctly, reducing the risk of emissions of poisonous Carbon Monoxide and / or production of soot.
It is also now mandatory to have a carbon monoxide alarm in every room where there is a fuel-burning appliance and in any room where a flue or chimney passes through, whether behind walls or under floorboards.
Not having your boiler serviced annually can, in time, do serious damage to your boiler. In the above picture you’ll see a boiler that hadn’t been serviced in some time. Dirt build up caused a blockage in the condensation overflow and in turn destroyed the main heat exchanger, which unfortunately is the most expensive part in any boiler.
Remember, It is illegal for anybody other than a Registered Gas Installer to service your boiler.
