Four reasons to have your gas boiler serviced

Four reasons to have your gas boiler serviced (by CBFM Heating)

For the sake of brevity, we will restrict the reasons to a palatable four though we’re certain there are more. We may look at other reasons in future boiling servicing blog posts.


A new boiler often comes with a comprehensive warranty and for this to be honoured you need proof that your boiler has been maintained. You may be asked for proof of service records if a breakdown or malfunction occurs in the warranty period. Like a car, say a Kia with a 7 year and 100,ooo mile warranty, you wouldn’t drive your Sportage for 7 years without a service (we hope). If there was engine or gearbox failure, we’re pretty certain that your local car dealer would take a dim view of your vehicle care (or lack of it).

Same with boilers – many, like Vaillant, have an extended warranty. An annual boiler service would keep this intact.

Save money

A boiler that has been serviced regularly will inevitably work more efficiently than one that hasn’t. Any faults and inefficiencies are diagnosed on a service and you will find that your energy bills will drop. Again, using the car analogy, you’d expect a car serviced yearly to use less petrol or diesel than one that hasn’t.

Catch problems quickly

If your boiler is making odd noises or not heating water or radiators as expected, you can mention this at an annual service. Our friendly field engineers will diagnose what the issue is and hopefully sort this out, before a minor problem becomes a more serious issue. Small fixes will save on major problems in the next year and you’ll have peace of mind, knowing problems have been rectified.

Family safety

We can all recall, we’re sure, family childhoods of open fires and wall mounted gas fires, which many still have and love. A boiler is now usually the primary source of heating for radiators and water and, with a gas feed, it needs safety checks to keep you and your family safe. A rental property requires, by law, an annual inspection by a Corgi engineer, arranged by the landlord. If you own your own home surely you should apply similar diligence?

Boiler replacement

Need a new boiler?

Any boiler needs to be efficient and suitable for your home situation. We can recommend the best type of boiler from leading brands that come with long warranties, low running costs and high levels of efficiency. A combi gas boiler installation is the benchmark for efficiency, often with smart controls like Economy settings and an ability to link to smart devices like phones for voice control.
