  • How Often Should My Boiler Be Serviced?

    It's very much up to you and how often do you want your system to be inspected and confirmed safe?

    The general guidance from manufacturers is an annual service.

    Balance Flue Gas Boilers

    Whilst balanced flue appliances are less critical, you will find most manufacturers still advise annual servicing. However, many gas fitters believe bi-annually is sufficient as flue problems are rarer and generally less serious. Balanced flue boilers draw in air from outside your home which means the burner airways don't get clogged with household debris such as pet hair, dust, carpet fibres and so on so cleaning requirements are less frequent.

    Open Flue Gas Boilers

    Open flue gas boilers should be serviced every year. It is mostly open flue gas appliances that cause death through carbon monoxide poisoning. This occurs because it is easier for noxious exhaust gasses to get into the house when something goes wrong with the flue / ventilation systems.

    Regular servicing helps identify flue related problems early, saving lives!
