Of all the complex systems that are incorporated into your home, the central heating is the most critical, as it provides essential heating and hot water. The boiler is the heart and soul of any heating system, and without proper maintenance, your boiler will, sooner or later, cease to operate. Servicing the boiler every few months will ensure that you always have heating and hot water, especially in the cold winter months.
Replacing a Boiler

Servicing your boiler would include the following:
- Checking the burner – Specifically noting the colour of the flame, which should be blue.
- Testing the thermostat for accuracy.
- Checking the flue is not obstructed.
- Looking for signs of a leak or corrosion.
The service session would end with the engineer firing up the boiler and checking that the radiators are hot and that there are no signs of trapped air in the system.
This is the most important time to check that the boiler is working at optimum levels, as the winter will demand a lot from your central heating system, and by making a service booking in October, your boiler will be ready for the extra work it must do throughout the winter months.
