Boiler Servicing – 5 Things You Need To Know When Servicing Your System

Recently an illegal gas fitter from Barnsley was jailed for multiple gas offences across Yorkshire. He was acting as a qualified gas installer, manipulating members of the local communities in order to earn a quick income, without considering the dangers of unsafe gas work. Fortunately nobody was seriously harmed.

We are starting to see a number of these “Gas Cowboys” exposed all over the United Kingdom. With more and more of them trying to beat the system, I would like to share 5 things that everyone should consider when they arrange for a gas engineer to enter their property.

A boiler service is quite simply a maintenance job that should be completed at least once every 12 months. It is a great way to ensure that your central heating system is maintained correctly, not to mention the savings it could make for you in the long run.

1. Why do I need to get a boiler service?

There is no reason for you get a boiler service every year unless you are a registered Landlord of a property. Most companies and Plumber Leumeah alike recommend that you get one as it is the best way to highlight any issues before they occur. This is simply a recommendation. Although by getting this job completed, it will ensure that your manufacturer guarantee/warranty remains valid. A lot of manufacturers have started to void guarantees if the owner of the products fail to properly maintain their appliances.

2. How often should I get my boiler serviced?

Most companies recommend every 12 months, However there is not a specific time-scale for this. A lot of home owners think they need to get it completed in the same month every year, this simply isn’t the case, although it does make sense as it makes it easier to manage each year.

3. How much does a boiler service cost?

There are hundreds of plumbing and heating companies all over the United Kingdom. Each one will charge a different price so it will vary on the area that you live in. Companies will naturally charge a little more than sole traders as they have more out-goings to cover with their incomes.

4. Do I get a certificate after my service?

Some organisations will issue a certificate but not all of the time. A boiler service differs from a Landlords Gas Safety Certificate. Upon completion the home owner will be issued with a completion notice but it is not a certificate, whereas a Landlords Safety Certificate is a legal document provided upon completion.

5. Who can complete a boiler service? Am I allowed to do it myself through tutorial videos?

Only Gas Safe Engineers can work on gas appliances. Not only is it illegal to work on gas if you are unqualified, but it is incredibly dangerous to both you and anyone else living in the property.
