Lovekin specialise in domestic gas boiler servicing. The full list of the areas we cover is on the right. We also service gas fires, warm air heaters and gas-fired water heaters. We set high standards and send annual boiler service reminders. Many of our customers have been with us for over 20 years (some now for over 25 years!) and we know most of our customers on first name terms
01252 334440 between 8.00 and 5.00 weekdays. Outside hours leave us a message and we’ll try to ring you back. If you prefer you can email us
We charge £96 including VAT for the first appliance and £72 inc VAT for each additional appliance except hobs, which are £48. But see our Neighbour Boiler Service Discount! Repair work and parts are extra but we’ll always discuss it first. We provide an invoice when we finish the work and ask for payment at the time; cash, cheque or online transfer but we don’t take cards
If your neighbour wants a boiler service too we’ll give each of you a £10 discount if you have them done together. Just let us know when you ring to make a booking
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.
Typical data from a gas boiler service combustion analysis. This analysis was taken after the boiler service and shows very clean combustion. The main burner pressure is the figure shown as Draught
Our gas boiler service is much more than a quick test with a flue gas analyser. With each gas boiler service we carry out various checks to ensure your safety. 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
During the boiler service we partially strip the boiler and check and clean the combustion chamber, heat exchanger, burner and injectors unless the manufacturers specify otherwise. When we re-assemble the boiler after service we check the condition of the combustion casing seals

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 lovekin.net 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.
Motorised valves can be a problem too and we have a page on Honeywell motorised valves.
The lovekin.net site is not finished yet and we are continuing to develop it as we have time.
