Undoubtedly, frequent maintenance will prolong the life of your boiler. It should serve you a lot longer than a boiler that has never earned any care and attention by keeping it tested and working in optimum condition. This is very important and it’s why you need to have the services of a Tewkesbury Boilers based company like Combi Man to take care of any work and issues for you.

How can I use my boiler to help?

As well as routine checking, if your boiler has not been in use for a while, check it by running it for 15 minutes every couple of months and if it doesn’t seem fine check anything untoward. Don’t be tempted to repair it yourself if you encounter minor issues. Boilers are complicated and complex pieces of machinery, and gas can be hazardous, so you need the right experience from a trained engineer.

What is included with a service?

All the boiler components will be reviewed and tested to make sure they are functioning properly. The engineer will clean the pipes and internal parts and repair any parts that are broken, damaged or ineffective.

 

What if, before a service is due, I spot a problem?

If you find any apparent problems, such as water leaks, an unusual colour in your hot water from corrosion on the main body of the boiler, do not wait for your annual service appointment. Immediately call a gas engineer, one that is licenced as a Gas Safe Accredited engineer.
