We don’t work weekends but we know many of you are very busy so we offer timed appointments for your boiler service with an arrival time slot of up to an hour. With the first appointment of the day we can offer a tighter time slot, arriving between 8.00 and 8.30 but first-thing appointments are in demand so you may have to book your boiler service a little way ahead.

Our gas boiler service is much more than a quick test with a flue gas analyser. With each gas boiler service we carry out a range of checks to ensure your safety and to maximise the efficiency of your boiler. We check the location of the boiler, the condition and operation of the boiler flue and that there is sufficient air for combustion and cooling.

We visually check the combustion casing to ensure there has been no breach of the casing due to rusting caused by water damage. We then partially strip the boiler and check and clean the combustion chamber, heat exchanger, burner and injectors unless the boiler manufacturers specify otherwise. When we re-assemble the boiler after service we check the condition of the combustion casing seals to ensure that no flue product can enter the room.

Where possible we carry out combustion analysis with the boiler service and if you’re interested we’ll be happy to explain the figures. In the tests we carry out, most older room-sealed gas boilers will achieve a gross efficiency of about 80%. Newer, high efficiency boilers (condensing boilers) usually reach 88% gross efficiency.

All domestic gas service engineers must be Gas Safe Registered. We are registered both as a company (Gas Safe Register No. 66587) and as individual gas service engineers.

We are also Worcester Accredited Installers

Sorry, we only service and install domestic mains gas appliances, not LPG

A lot of the boilers we service are quite new but we also service some very old gas boilers. We think the oldest boilers we currently service were made in 1967 and are now 47 years old. We are happy to service new or old gas boilers, provided they work safely, and we’ll never try to bounce you into changing your boiler unnecessarily.

If you’d like to know more about High Efficiency (HE) boilers and what gross and net efficiency mean you can find an article we wrote on our site. In the article we talk more about the efficiency of gas boilers and the savings you might make by changing your boiler. It’s not always as much as you might think because our industry often overstates the possible savings. The cost of gas is a major factor in deciding whether it is worth keeping your existing boiler or whether you should have a boiler replacement, and as the cost of gas increases, the balance changes.

Sites like uSwitch provide lots of information and give tables of figures showing you what you could save in gas bills for different boiler efficiencies. The problem is that very few of the older gas boilers we come across are desperately inefficient. We carry out flue gas analysis on most boilers when we have serviced them and most of the boilers show a gross efficiency of about 80%. Changing these boilers for new, high efficiency gas boilers would make a saving but it would be relatively small. We have another reservation about uSwitch; looking at their web site it appears that they are in partnership with British Gas. We were under the impression that uSwitch were independent.

It may sound a little bit technical but have a look at our gas boiler efficiency page and you’ll be in a better position to decide for yourself. We also deal with general central heating problems like system pressure and system problems like radiator balancing. Motorised valves can be a problem too and we have a page on Honeywell motorised valves. The site is not finished yet and we are continuing to develop it as and when we have time.

We have a section on the home page of this site dealing with gas appliance terminology. We explain a lot of terms used, such as:

Conventional boilers, regular boilers, high efficiency boilers, condensing boilers, room-sealed boilers, open-flued boilers, multipoint water heaters, flueless appliances and back boilers. The section also deals with some of the terminology relating to central heating controls such as programmers, time clocks, programmable room thermostats and motorised valves. Terminology used in the gas and central heating industry can be ambiguous and quite confusing!
