What should be done on a gas boiler service?
We are often asked the difference between a Gas Safety Check and a Gas Boiler Service, some gas service companies will simply come in and carry out a gas safety check and by putting an analyser on your flue and testing if the gas line is sound, this is far from a gas boiler service.
We have broken down below what our engineers will do during a routine gas boiler service:
- Introduce themselves and show Identification and Gas safe card
- Check with client if the boiler and system have been running correctly
- Check appliance location is suitable for the type of appliance installed
- Check the appliance for any damage prior to commencing work on it
- Take a set of combustion figures with flue gas analyser to ensure it is burning correctly
- Check all electrics are conforming to current standards
- Check for correct clearances from combustible materials
- Check gas pipework is installed correctly
- Check ventilation is correct- if required
- Remove main burners, clean and inspect for signs of damage
- Clean and inspect gas injectors
- Reassemble burner and pilot assembly
