How often should I service my boiler?
To ensure the continued efficient and safe operation of a boiler it is recommended that boilers are checked and serviced at regular intervals, usually once a year is enough. Regular servicing helps to prevent boiler breakdowns as boiler maintenance is carried out before the boiler unexpectedly stops working.
Examples of common issues picked up during boiler services:
Leaking auto air vent
Leaking flow switch
