Why is it important to have an annual gas boiler check and service?

Oct 13, 2017

For many years it has been a big question over the homeowners head on why is it important to have an annual gas boiler check or service? Our team in Drips and Leaks explains these reason and what actions should be take when getting an annual boiler service.   When the boiler has been fitted or an old boiler has just been serviced, the next boiler service will be due in 12 months time”. To avoid the look and the thoughts of the customer and a bad confrontation, then it is always good to explain why this service needs to be done. When the boiler comes on the boiler needs part oxygen, part gas and part energy to fire up. As the fuel flows then the fuel will require a continued amount of oxygen in order to keep the combustion process to carry on. The air of flow has to come from somewhere, which carries dust particle and what ever else is picked up in the air. If you live near a busy road where there air is dirty then in theory, the sooner you will require a service as the muck builds up quicker within the boiler. Another example on an open flue or flue-less boiler is that, if you have a boiler where you have laminated floor, all the dust particles, dead skin, dog hairs and what ever muck lying on the floor will build up quicker and in theory would cause your boiler to require a service within 6 months rather than 12 months. If you had carpet then due to dirty that sticks to the carpet more easily then the chance are that there will not require a boiler service as soon. So what does the dust got to do with causing the gas boiler to require a service within 12-months The reason the boiler needs to be cleaned out is that when the build up of dust, hairs and other muck take place the jets of heat are then blocked in the direction they require for complete combustion rather than partial combustion. If there is partial combustion taking place then this can cause the boiler to operate incorrectly such as...

Air conditioning calpe costa blanca When trouble arises with your air conditioner, you need to move fast to get it repaired.

We have tons of HVAC repair companies in the area?

No one likes to think about what might happen in the event of a plumbing leak in your home. Some leaks are easy to spot, such as when you find water spreading over the floor in your bathroom. Others can go for months without being detected: hidden behind the walls or similar hard-to-spot places and causing considerable damage before they are dealt with. And even the most obvious cases assume that you are home to notice them. What happens if a leak occurs when you’re away on vacation: say, if a frozen pipe bursts one Christmas while you and your family are several states...

Plumbing services on the costa blanca Nothing lasts forever. On a long enough timeline, every plumbing pipe and fixture in your home will need to be replaced — including your plumbing system’s primary artery, the main water line leading to your home. Buried underground, this is the line that connects your household plumbing to the municipal water supply. You might not know its age, its length, its location or even the material from which the pipe is made, but this information may come in handy even if your water line has decades of service left in it. What’s At Stake From washing the dishes to flushing the toilet, it all depends on the main water line. When that line experiences a problem, it affects every plumbing fixture and appliance in your home. And should the line collapse or become damaged beyond repair, running water is off limits until replacement can be completed — usually a process taking several days. If you’re lucky, your home’s water line will last 70 years or more. But that depends on a lot of factors, and even if those factors are largely in your favor, damage can still occur. Considering how disruptive and costly it can be to replace a main water line, it’s best to have as much lead time as possible before replacement becomes necessary. The smart way to stay on top of this is to schedule a camera inspection of your main line about once every two years. As we’ll explain below, the greatest threats attack your main line very slowly, and the head-start offered by a camera inspection can put you in charge of the project...
