What We Check During A Gas Boiler Service

  • The boilers general condition will be inspected. Where it is deteriorated, you will be notified of such faults or potential faults that are likely to occur in the near future.
  • The boilers location and clearances will be checked to ensure that the boiler is fully accessible and maintainable
  • The boilers operating pressures will be checked, and where it applies, we will gas rate the appliance.
  • Any ventilation requirements will be checked to see if they are adequate.
  • The flue will be inspected to ensure that it is free from damage, obstruction and has been installed and supported correctly.
  • Where applicable, the combustion will be checked with a flue gas analyse to confirm that the products of combustion are within parameters and no dangerous levels of carbon monoxide exist.
  • Where applicable, flue flow and spillage checks will be conducted to ensure that the flue (typically open flued) is operating in a safe manner.
  • All safety devices and controls on the boiler will be checked to ensure they are working correctly.
  • The burner, where applicable, will be inspected and checked for defects. Some boilers have pressure tests to check this.
  • The ignition and flame picture will be checked to ensure the boiler is igniting correctly and the flames being produced that are one of complete combustion. With some appliances the scope to do this is limited.
  • The primary heat exchange will be checked to ensure it is free from sediment/dirt and other defects, such as cracks/splits.
  • The electrics will be checked to ensure that the boiler is correctly wired, fused and such things as the polarity through the appliance is correct.
  • Any seals that prevent the products of combustion from entering the internal spaces of the property will be inspected to ensure they are still in good condition.
  • The general circulation of the water around the heating system will be checked to ensure the pump is working correctly and no blockages exist which prevent the boiler from working normally.
  • Any condensation traps will be cleaned from debris, although due to the poor installation of some boilers this is not always possible.
  • Expansion vessels, where applicable, will be checked to ensure that their internal air pressure is adequate and no discharge is evident from the pressure relief valve.
  • System pressure, where applicable, will be set to the correct cold pressure.
  • The condensate pipework, where applicable, will be inspected to ensure that it is of the correct size, and where required, is correctly insulated
  • CO2 values will be checked, and where applicable, calibrated to within the manufactures tolerances.
  • A general inspection of the boilers components will be undertaken to ensure no signs of distress or failure are present.
  • Any other aspect specified in the manufactures instructions as a service requirement will be undertaken.

In addition:
