Clean flame picture during a boiler service. Pale yellow flames would indicate incomplete combustion and a risk from carbon monoxide. Red, orange and mauve colour tinges in the flame are normal.

If you have a neighbour who wants a boiler service done too we’ll give each of you a £10 discount if you have them done together. Just let us know when you ring to book the services.
Whether we’re servicing gas boilers, fires, water heaters or air heaters our first consideration is your safety. With each boiler service we check the location of the boiler, the provision of air for combustion and cooling and the condition and operation of the boiler flue.
Unless the manufacturers specify otherwise we partially strip the boiler and check and clean the burner and injectors, the flue-ways through the heat exchanger, the pilot burner and the combustion chamber. As we re-assemble the boiler we check the integrity of the combustion casing and the condition of the casing seals to try to eliminate any risk of poisonous flue gases entering the room.
Finally, where it’s possible we run a combustion analysis test as part of the service. This is particularly important with high efficiency boilers (also known as condensing boilers) but provides us with useful safety information for older boilers too. The ratio of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide in the flue gases is a good indicator of the safety of the combustion.
All domestic gas service engineers must be members of the Gas Safe Register, the government-appointed control body that replaced CORGI. We are registered both as a company and as individual service engineers.

Lovekin also repair and install gas boilers and central heating systems in Sandhurst GU47. If you are thinking about modifying your central heating system, looking for a quotation to replace your boiler or just want to replace a radiator or heating controls we’ll be happy to talk through the possibilities. Just ring us and ask. We are also Worcester Accredited Installers.
We run another web site recording information about central heating problems and fault-finding of gas boilers and heating controls. You can find it at lovekin.net. The site is far from finished but we’ve posted a number of useful articles there, including articles on radiator balancing, boiler efficiency, central heating system pressure and boiler condensate problems. As we find time we’ll improve the look of the site and add more articles.
