Complete Boiler Service Explained

Complete Boiler Service Explained

Are you one of those people who let the gas engineer in and leave him to do his job? While it’s nice to work without someone looking over your shoulder, we think clients should know what they are paying for, says Greenserve’s Managing Director, Andy Harris. To give people an insight into what is really involved in our most requested job – a boiler service – we’ve produced a short YouTube video that illustrates the basics of what we do and why we do it.

A boiler service is actually a fascinating task that is key to an efficient central heating and hot water system – it should be an annual exercise that everyone undertakes. A serviced boiler will work more efficiently, resulting in lower energy bills, and it will be less likely to break down.

Our qualified engineers are meticulous and methodical in their approach to boiler servicing – it involves gadgets, precision fine tuning and a little touch of science. Because we are proud of our workmanship and our skilled engineers, we wanted to show what goes on when the boiler cover comes off.

In less than three minutes you can watch myself and Jack – our lead engineer – work through the major elements of a boiler service. Basically, it’s all the essential bits condensed in a quick YouTube clip. During the filming we thought it was important to actually show the inside of a boiler and some of the main working parts. I bet it’s a sight many homeowners and tenants/landlords have never seen.

During the video we take a step-by-step approach to boiler servicing, explaining how we:-

– Undertake a combustion analysis to find out how well the boiler is working before and after the service

– Test and clean components to prolong their life and improve efficiency

– Examine the condensate trap, gas valve, pump, fan and burner

– Detect for leaks

– Log the full report with Greenserve’s HQ

– Issue a 12 month complete peace of mind guarantee
