Q & A
Why Service a new boiler its only a year old?
To ensure that it is running correctly, and the burn is correct, if there is a problem it can be easily resolved at this stage.
MY friend said you only put a probe in and leave ?
That would be someone carrying out a safety check, insurance companies use this method to test the safe operation of the boiler , it is not a service as per the manufacturer’s instructions but a safety check only, it may also be done on a Landlord gas safety inspection when the service is done at a different time to the inspection.
The cost is too high I will save my money ,
The cost is less money than a dinner for two with wine, the boiler runs 24/7/365 and if you read your insurance policy it is your duty to maintain the appliances, good luck if it all goes wrong.
Our engineers are gas safe registered, undergo re training every five years, product update training every year, and are fully insured. This all costs time and money .
Gas fire service in St Albans
We service most makes of gas fires if the instructions are available or we can obtain them, a gas fire service is crucial for the ongoing safety of the appliance, we clean out the fire as required and carry out flue / chimney safety checks as part of the work, all fires are different, we often hear well I don’t use it much, well in our experience if you're not using it then the spiders and birds are !
This leads to a partially blocked flue and fumes in the room, yes your carbon monoxide detector is a great tool for detecting this, but not as good as an inspection and operational test.
But I have a flueless gas fire ? the biggest part of this service is checking the fumes in the room, that’s correct, all the fumes from this fire come into the room, that’s why you have a big air vent in the corner, its crucial the catalytic convertor in the fire is working, you cannot tell by looking at it,
A fire service usually consists of
Protecting the area around the fire
Inspecting the opening behind the fire
Inspecting the flue
Re assemble fire
Check gas pressures
A fire service will take 45 – 60 mins
