    Our boiler service includes checking the boiler for gas and CO2 leaks, examining its components to ensure they’re working efficiently, inline with manufacturing standards. Cleaning parts if necessary and ensuring the boiler is running effectively.

    Typically, a boiler service will take between 30 minutes to an hour, but this can vary based on the boiler’s condition.

    It’s recommended to have a Gas Safe registered engineer service your boiler to ensure safety and compliance with regulations.

    Installation times can vary, but typically it takes between 1-3 days depending on the complexity of the job.

    The cost can vary widely based on the type of boiler, the capacity and the installation complexity. It’s best to contact us to receive an accurate quote.

    The best type depends on your home’s size, number of bathrooms, and heating requirements. Common types include combi, hybrid or regular boilers.

    Signs include frequent breakdowns, rising energy bills, or if the boiler is over 15 years old. If repairs are more than half the cost of a new boiler, replacement might be more economical.

    Generally, you don’t need planning permission for boiler installations unless you live in a listed building or conservation area. However, the installation must comply with building regulations.

    We would always recommend a qualified professional, install your boiler, especially a gas boiler, to ensure safety.

    Remember that regulations and best practices can vary by country, so it’s always a good idea to consult with local experts or regulatory bodies when considering boiler servicing or installations.

    Typically, a standard boiler service focuses on the boiler and its components to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently. However, some technicians might perform a cursory check of radiators, especially if you mention specific issues you’ve been having, like cold spots or noises.

    If you want a comprehensive check of your radiators, this might fall under a central heating system check or a power flush service rather than a standard boiler service. It’s always a good idea to specify what you want checked when booking a service.
