What happens in a boiler service?
A boiler service takes from 30-60 minutes. Your engineer will remove the front casing of the boiler and check the following functions:
Visual check of the boiler and flame (if possible)
Internal and External checks on the flue
Operating pressure and/or heat input checks
Safety Devices check
Ensuring that the case seals are effectively sealing!
They should fire up the boiler and check for any faults
They may clean parts that need it
Finally they will give you a written report.

Keep the heat in…
Spending money on central heating for your home when a large amount of heat is escaping is a waste.
The ideal is to have fully insulated walls and ceilings but if you live in an old house it can sometimes be hard to seal up the draughts.
Ensure that you keep doors closed as much as possible.
If you don’t use some rooms in your house much (like spare bedrooms) turn off the radiator.
Reflective panels behind radiators can help reflect heat back into the room and these are cheap and easy to find online.
Consider a Smart Thermostat
Don’t heat the house when you aren’t there. The new generation of smart thermostats are great for this, they only heat your home when needed and you can control the central heating from your phone when you are out.
Is everyone going to be home late? Ensure that the radiators aren’t pumping out heat to an empty home by simply telling you app!
Worried about frozen pipes in winter – Smart thermostats can ensure there is enough heat in the pipes when the temperatures are low enough to freeze!
