FAQs on Boiler Servicing

Regardless of the type of boiler that you own and its age, it’s imperative that you consider having this serviced on a regular basis by an accredited and reputable engineer.

At Chalmers Gas & Heating, our customers are always asking us about boiler servicing, its core benefits and what’s involved in annual inspection.

So, here are some of our most frequently-asked questions and the answers that you need to help keep your boiler running at its optimal efficiency all-year-round!

Who Can Service My Boiler?

In simple terms, any engineer that has earned Gas Safe-registration can carry out an annual service on your boiler.

However, you should not that plumbing engineers are not qualified to undertake this type of work. This is not to say that plumber’s aren’t highly skilled and multi-talented individuals, but they lack the necessary accreditation to work on boilers and heating systems.

What are the Benefits of Boiler Servicing?

This is an excellent question; and the fact remains that there are numerous advantages to having your boiler serviced.

Firstly, this enables engineers to diagnose and repair faults before they become too problematic, minimising any inconvenience caused and negating the risk of breakdowns in the future.

This will also minimise the cost of long-term boiler repairs, while boosting performance and efficiency levels over an extended period of time.
