What should I do in a boiler emergency?

Our team of highly trained advisers and engineers have the skills and experience required to quickly and accurately diagnose the problem with your boiler enabling the engineer who arrives at your home to have all the knowledge and parts they require to get your boiler back up and running.

Why does my boiler need an annual service?

Getting your boiler serviced regularly will ensure it runs efficiently and safely. It’s also a requirement of your boiler warranty. A great time to book a service is towards the end of summer, as your heating system could have been idle for some time. Then you know your boiler is ready for the big central heating switch on in October. Remember, a faulty boiler can be dangerous – and they’re not cheap to replace. We can help with that too with easy ways to pay.

How much does a boiler repair or service cost?

A boiler service takes around 1 hour and typically involves:

  • Visual inspection
  • Operation and control checks
  • Flue and combustion release checks
  • Clean the main boiler components
  • Flame, pressure and ventilation tests, including safety checks
  • A check that your boiler and central heating are working properly

The standard cost is £90, which covers the service and labour. If you require extra parts or a repair, our engineer will advise you during the service.

If you have booked a boiler repair – for an emergency or breakdown – our standard callout charged is £100, which includes the first hour of work. Labour is charged at £50 for every hour thereafter. Parts and material costs vary. Your engineer will let you know what the problem is and advise of the cost to fix it during the callout.
