For both your own safety as well as your boiler’s efficiency, you should have your boiler serviced annually by a trained, Gas Safe certified plumbing and heating engineer. Over time, residual build up and worn parts can decrease your boiler’s efficiency, which will be reflected in your heating bills. Even though today’s boilers are more efficient that their predecessors, they can still require regular servicing to continue running in like-new condition. Plumbing on Tap are not only recommended installers of the eco-friendly and energy efficient Worcester Boche boiler models, but we also back our new Worcester Bosch installations with a SEVEN year guarantee.
But more importantly, annual servicing is a safety issue. Even though gas leaks in boilers are a rare occurrence they can still happen and can prove to be fatal to you and your loved ones. A gas leak can cause fire, explosions, and even silent death by means of carbon monoxide poisoning. Always check that the plumbing and heating engineer you’ve hired is Gas Safe certified by checking the Gas Safe register and asking to see the technician’s Gas Safe ID card.
