An annual service and safety check is absolutely essential to maintain safety and avoid costly repairs.
Whilst a gas safety check assesses the basic safety of a gas appliance a service will consist of a full check of a gas appliance and our engineer is likely to take the appliance apart to inspect it. The engineer will assess the physical condition of the appliance, installation pipework, air vents and any flues for deterioration. They will carry out performance tests and take any necessary remedial action.
PHP Services will ensure that your heating system is operating to peak performance and optimum efficiency and safety.
The boilers emissions will be checked with a flue gas analyser to ensure efficiency and to safeguard against excessive amounts of CO (carbon monoxide) and to determine if a full strip down and clean of the combustion chamber is required.
To ensure continued safety for you and your family, PHP Services can fit you a carbon monoxide alarm.
The boiler safety controls and expansion vessel will also be tested to ensure continued safety and to stop excessive pressure build up which can damage system components.
We will then check the flue integrity, and the appliance has the correct ventilation for complete combustion.
Appliances should be serviced regularly in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. Servicing your gas appliances regularly will make sure they are safe to use. It will also maintain your appliances efficiency and performance which will help prevent a system breakdown, which can be expensive and never welcome.
