To ensure that your boiler is working safely and efficiently, it is recommended that you have it serviced annually by a qualified Gas Safe qualified heating engineer or boiler specialist. Regular boiler servicing can help to identify any potential issues early on, which can prevent costly breakdowns and repairs.

During a boiler service, a Gas Safe heating engineer will typically carry out a number of checks and tests, including:

  • Checking for any water leaks or signs of damage
  • Check all case seals for damage and signs of corrosion
  • Checking for any signs of Leakage of products of combustion
  • Testing the flue and flue integrity
  • Checking the gas settings and adjusting if necessary
  • Cleaning and inspecting the gas burner 
  • Checking the gas rate of the boiler to check it is burning the correct amount of fuel gas
  • Inspecting and testing the safety controls
  • Checking the ignition system
  • Inspecting the heat exchanger, fans and other key components.
  • Checking and setting the correct CO/CO2 settings

After a service or breakdown has been completed, the Blue Emergency Cover engineer will provide you with a report via email detailing any issues that were found and any recommendations for repairs or replacement.
