Just like a car, your boiler needs annual servicing to prevent unnecessary wear and minimise the risk of breakdown. These are some examples of what is covered/ to look for but not a complete list.

  • Ensure correct gas pressure and flow.
  • Ensure the flue and combustion using (where appropriate) a flue gas analyser to make sure the boiler is burning the right mixture of gas and air.

  • Check that all seals are intact.
  • Clean the dirt trap, if installed.
