What happens at a boiler service?

It’s all too easy to forget to book your service but regular servicing goes a long way to increasing the life span of your boiler and saving you money through the reduction of costly repairs.
We know that there is a lack of knowledge of what happens during a boiler service, so here at Croston Plumbing & Heating we have provided some points below to help educate you.

Firstly, our Gas Safe engineer at Croston Plumbing & Heating will inspect your boiler and its controls to ensure they are working correctly. During this inspection the engineer will be paying particular attention to any weak points, leaks and possible corrosion damage.

Our Gas Safe engineer will remove the boiler case to check the main components are operating as they should. It is important that you never remove your boiler case yourself, this should only be done by a Gas Safe registered heating engineer.

A gas pressure check will ensure your boiler is operating at the correct gas pressure.

To check that no dangerous emissions are being discharged a flue test will be carried out.

After cleaning your boiler as required and with the case back on and correctly sealed, your engineer will leave a report with you so that you can see what has been done and steps you can take to help keep your boiler working soundly all year round. Engineers will service your boiler as per manufacturer’s requirements. Your engineer can answer any questions about your boiler.
