Boiler Service Bradford, Leeds, West Yorkshire. You only pay upon service completion
Every gas boiler service should take place every year to ensure continued and safe operation. A standard boiler service usually takes 40 minutes to an hour. I will test the boiler using specialist flue gas analyser to ensure the safe operation of the appliance. A cleanout of the main heat exchanger if necessary, testing gas pressures and gas rates and issuing a certificate of completion.
How often do I need my boiler servicing?
In the UK, the health and safety executive is responsible for regulating all gas safety. It is the same executive who oversees the gas safe register (the accreditation that anybody who works with gas must have). The executive strenuously recommends that any gas appliance or gas boiler is serviced by a gas safe accredited and registered engineer at least once every 12 months. Much like a car MOT – it is absolutely necessary to ensure that all of your gas appliances are operating both safely and efficiently. So if you adhere to this legislation, you should only require boiler servicing Bradford once every 12 months.
What's Included In Boiler Service
The fixed price boiler service in Bradford and Leeds areas includes:
The boiler service starts with a visual inspection that establishes that the boiler, its installation and its positioning, comply with the rules laid out in building regulations, electrical regulations, gas-safety regulations, water by-laws, installation instructions and British Standards. All must comply with present legislation.
To do this the boiler engineer will fire the boiler, check its essential operation and identify any initial faults. The pre-service inspection also includes gas rate check.
I will remove the casing (something you, as the householder, should never do yourself). At this point, I will examine main components to see they are clean and free from damage. These components include the main burner, the main injector, the heat exchanger, condense trap, the spark centre probe and the seals and fans. Also part of this section of the boiler service is the checking of all electrics for overheating, the cleaning of all inside surfaces, inspecting all pipework (water & gas) and joints, and very importantly, making sure the flue terminal is unobstructed.
Flue gases check.
I will check flue gases with a flue gas analyser to make sure the boiler is combusting properly.
Test results If any of these tests show a fault, the engineer should inform you of any additional costs that the repairs will incur. It is widely recommended that the parts are only replaced with those also made by the manufacturer of the boiler, to ensure that they’re compatible.
I will carry out a gas tightness test to establish if there are any leaks in the system.
Boiler Service Report.
The casing of the boiler will be carefully replaced. Moreover, at this stage I will issue the service report. This is your chance to compare what the boiler engineer has stated they have done, with what has actually been completed. Only sign-off the report if you are satisfied with the work done compared to the checklist.
If I will require replacement of seals or other parts, I will inform you before changing.
After servicing your boiler, you will receive electronically generated Boiler Service Certificate, which can be emailed to you or/and the letting agent if required.
