Check your boiler after winter – the top 3 boiler servicing providers
It is important to have your boiler checked after winter, to avoid common boiler problems occurring. Your boiler has been working hard through the winter months to keep your home heated. Early spring is the ideal time to have it serviced and make sure it is running efficiently.
Co2 gases can be emitted from gas boilers that are not burning fuels correctly (known as ‘incomplete combustion’). This can also happen if the appliance breaks down. Carbon monoxide cannot be detected without a proper check, so whichever type of boiler you have, it should be serviced at least once a year to ensure it runs efficiently at all times.
British Gas offers regular services for your boiler, to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning and also to make sure your boiler is performing well.
During a British Gas service, the engineer will check the gas pressure to ensure it is correct. He will carry out a flue test which checks for unsafe emissions from the boiler and he will inspect the boiler and its controls. He will also leave a check list with you, giving you boiler safety information. The engineer will check the boiler for leaks and corrosion.
If you are thinking of replacing an old boiler, British Gas will give you a boiler replacement cost guide and advise you about the latest boilers available and which one would suit your home.
