A boiler service is a yearly manual inspection of your water heater’s components, performed by a Gas Safe registered engineer. It involves maintenance of your boiler’s parts and inspecting the unit for faults or issues.
During the inspection, the technician will follow a boiler service checklist and perform a series of checks to test the heater’s efficiency and, most importantly, its safety. Some smaller faults can be taken care of on the spot to prevent larger problems down the line.
Now that you know what a boiler service is generally, it’s time to dive into the details and explain exactly what is involved in a boiler service. For questions on price, check our article on how much should a boiler service cost.
Usually, the service takes from 30 minutes to no more than an hour. However, that will depend on the boiler type and the maintenance it requires.
