A poorly maintained boiler can produce carbon monoxide and an inefficient use of gas, thereby not only increasing your heating bills but there may be an increased risk of releasing hazardous CO2. An inefficiently operating boiler can leak out colorless and odourless carbon monoxide, which is almost impossible to detect without a working carbon monoxide(CO2) alarm. This dangerous gas can pose a serious threat to health for you and your family and even kill if not detected early. To ensure you and your family's safety is one of the most important reasons for regularly servicing your gas boiler.


Gas Boiler Servicing

Boilers are often the most forgotten parts of the house, because, as long as they work, people are not inclined to worry about them.

By not regularly servicing your gas boiler, you can cause more potential problems later, especially in winter. Most boiler manufacturers recommend annual maintenance of the boiler, and in many cases the boiler's warranty depends on the service being performed and the correct entry of the service record. The service of a gas boiler is a complex check that a qualified, registered and reputable plumbing company can perform.
