Are you due your annual boiler servicing soon? If yes, it’s important to schedule a prompt visit from one of our gas engineers. Boiler and gas safety are incredibly important for the wellbeing of your property and its occupants, be they your family in your home, tenants in a rental property or staff in a commercial space. It’s a legal requirement to have your servicing performed by a professional on the Gas Safe Register. At Surrey Gas & Services, we hold this accreditation, along with decades of trade experience.
Covering all locations in Epsom, we perform boiler servicing efficiently and with a keen eye for detail. But have you ever wondered what exactly our engineers do during the service itself?
As such a vital procedure, we understand the curiosity. In fact, knowing what to expect when having your boiler serviced offers you additional peace of mind.
We have dedicated this blog to outlining the steps our gas engineers take during your service. However, it’s essential that we underline the importance of proactive maintenance work as opposed to reactive repairs.
According to current industry guidelines, you should have your boiler serviced annually. You should also service your boiler upon moving into a new property, be it in Epsom or any other Surrey location. This ensures your living environment is safe. It also uncovers potentially nasty surprises before they have a chance to develop.
The manufacturer’s instructions for your boiler are equally important. As the gas engineers performing your boiler servicing, we should have access to this information before starting the process. It’s also helpful if you can let us know in advance of our visit what make and model boiler you have. This allows us to fully prepare for the service ahead of time.
When we arrive at your Epsom property, feel free to ask us for our Gas Safe Register identification. Like any reputable gas engineers, we don’t mind. We only want to put your mind at ease.
The engineer at your property will then ask if your boiler has been performing to a satisfactory standard of late, and whether it has displayed any faults. Next, we start on the service itself.
In accordance with HHIC (Heating & Hotwater Industry Council) guidelines, Surrey Gas & Services performs boiler servicing as follows:
