As the Autumn nights start drawing in and the urge to hunker down gets stronger, we dream of cosy nights in front of the TV, lounging in a hot bath and hanging up our dancing shoes in exchange for a onesie to enjoy the ultimate Saturday night in. Let’s not have our dream turn into a nightmare of no heating or no hot water because the boiler has broken down with our plumbing services.

This is the perfect time of year to book that annual boiler service to ensure any winter worries of being cold are put to bed.

There are no shortage of plumbing services able to offer boiler servicing, but a local plumbing firm like us at Three Counties Plumbers is a great option for providing excellent customer service with that personal touch. All our engineers are gas safety registered and can offer all the heating services you would expect from boiler & central heating installation to boiler service & repairs.

A local company offering plumbing services will be happy to give you a free quote for your annual boiler service which every boiler owner should be doing as part of their regular maintenance.

Why book an annual boiler service?

plumbing services

An important part of owning a boiler is making sure that it is kept in good working order and an annual boiler service is highly recommended to ensure safety within the property. Regular boiler maintenance will help prevent the need to call out emergency plumbing services and avoid nasty bills for boiler repairs due to worn or overused parts.

By booking plumbing services with gas safety registered engineers who can undertake your annual boiler service will give you peace of mind knowing that your boiler is in top working order.

An annual boiler service is also important to ensure that your boiler is performing at its optimum rate avoiding unnecessary costs paying for fuel being used needlessly by an inefficient boiler.

Another point to note is that a boiler warranty may only be valid if the boiler is serviced each year, failure to call on plumbing services to carry out an annual service could void your warranty.

You should get your boiler serviced every year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. If you have any concerns, contact the Gas Safe Register on 0800 408 5500 or at gassaferegister.co.uk.

What should take place as part of an annual boiler Service?

  • A visual check of the boiler and flame, if possible Checks on the flue (externally and internally)
  • Checking the operating pressure and / or heat input
  • Checking safety devices
  • Check case seals for an effective seal
  • Boiler casing removed to check all main boiler components (burner, heat exchanger, main injector, spark / sensor probe)
  • Boiler fired safely to identify any working faults
  • Boiler parts cleaned, if necessary
  • A service report showing everything the engineer has done

Not all boilers are the same but heating services provided by our engineers include all makes, models and types including Vaillant boilers.

According to WHICH? some boiler cover plans on the market do include a boiler service but it is often a more expensive option than calling out a heating engineer offered by independent plumbing services.
