Why do I need an annual boiler service?
Nobody likes getting up for work in the morning with no hot water for a wash, shower or shave, but most importantly, we all want to be safe! Whilst an
unexpected boiler breakdown or fault with your heating system can be a major inconvenience, most importantly a badly maintained boiler can present a
very real and dangerous risk.
Ultimately your boiler system runs on gas, so a regular boiler service is intended to keep you safe and avoid leaks or faults, which could be of danger
to you and your household. We advise our customers to have an annual boiler service for this reason if nothing else. Boiler servicing should only be
completed by a Gas Safe Registered central heating engineer, who is approved to do so.
Carbon Monoxide - The silent killer
Boilers that have not been properly installed, ventilated or maintained can produce a poisonous gas called carbon monoxide also known as ‘the silent killer’
as the gas cannot be seen or smelt. Exposure to this gas can cause carbon monoxide poisoning with symptoms that include headaches, drowsiness, nausea,
breathlessness and stomach pains. Worse still, prolonged exposure can be fatal. If you suspect the presence of the gas we strongly recommend immediate action.
Gas Safety Certificate
If you are a landlord, you have a legal responsibility to have an annual boiler service and ensure that each of your properties has a current Gas Safety
Certificate. A Gas Safety Check can only be completed by an approved Gas Safe registered heating engineer who can then issue a CP12 Inspection Certificate
for your boiler to confirm it meets the required safety standard.
