An annual boiler safety check and boiler service, carried out by a professional service engineer ensures that your boiler is functioning properly. Regular servicing of your boiler is important as it ensures that the boiler is working to the specifications designed by the boiler manufac-turer. This will help prolong the life of the boiler as well as reduce the risk of faults and ex-pensive repairs down the line. A detailed service will include inspection of the pipe work, ventilation, clearances etc. The system is then inspected, cleaned and re-assembled. The oper-ation of the boiler functions are then inspected for safe and correct operation. Finally a com-bustion efficiency test will be carried out to ensure that the appliance is operating at its maxi-mum performance levels.
