Normally a high efficiency condensing boiler will normally only require a standard service once a year, to ensure it is operating safely and efficiently. Modern boilers are designed to work at maximum efficiency, whilst being as fuel efficient as possible. A Standard Service involves minimum intrusion to working parts, and providing your boiler is performing in accordance with the manufacturers specifications, it is normally completed within 30 minutes to one hour.
A Standard Service consists of.
1. Test the applince for gas leaks.
2. Check that there is adequate ventilation for the appliance.
3. Check the suitability and condition of the appliances flue.
4. Strip/inspect the appliance and check internally for corrosion, leaks, wear & tear.
5. Check the working gas rate/working pressure against the manufacturers data.
6. Check the correct operation/condition of all safety devices.
7. Test for the safe evacuation of products of combustion.
8. Carry out a flue gas analysis test and confirm the result is in accordance with the manufacturers specifications, (as appropriate)
9. Confirm the appliance is in a safe condition to use.
10. Issue a work reportstating any faults found/recomendations.
MAJOR STRIP DOWN BOILER SERVICING.
Much like a car with high use/mileage, sometimes a boiler will require a more than a standard service. Whilst modern boilers burn cleaner for longer than older less efficient boilers, eventually their heat exchangers can become fouled. When this happens, the boiler will be less fuel efficient, and the flue gas analysis results may not be in accordance with the manufacturers specification. In such an event, the appliance will require a major strip down service in addition to the steps taken during a Standard Service. This is to gain access internally to the main heat exchanger to thoroughly clean it out. This takes more time, and therefore incurs an increased charge.
A service will not repair your faulty appliance. If your appliance or central heating boiler is not working correctly, it has to be repaired prior to being serviced.
We do not charge for sundries used during a service, eg, smoke pellets, smoke matches, fire sealing plate tape etc.
Combined Fire & Back Boiler Units are in truth two appliances, which take more time to service than a stand alone boiler. This is why we charge more than our normal service charge. They were more common years ago, and many Engineers may have never came accross them.
We don't work on flueless or panoramic style gas fires.
We are sometimes asked to permanently disconnect an unwanted gas appliance. For example, a customer wants to change over from a gas to an electric hob. We will disconnect and cap off the gas supply to the appliance and carry out a gas tightness test. We cannot remove the old appliance for disposal.
FERNOX TF1 FILTERS.
With the exception of Fernox TF1 filters, we will clean out system filters, during a standard boiler service. We have had previous experience working on Fernox TF1 filters which has resulted in this policy. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
We cover most of Glasgow, East Kilbride, Hamilton, Bellshill. Cambuslang, Barrhead, Neilston, Paisley etc.
MON - FRI 9.00am - 6.00pm
SAT - SUN Closed
Outside of opening hours, we are always happy to answer the telephone, or we will get back to you quickly if you leave a short message.
