Heating Appliance Servicing

Boilers are an essential part of our homes. They provide heating and hot water, and we rely on them to function on demand. The more efficient they are, the less it costs to run. Manufacturers recommend that heating appliances are serviced annually to maintain safety and performance to help prevent a breakdown and avoid costly repairs. To ensure the annual service is not forgotten, we will send you an automatic service reminder. Our heating engineers are Gas Safe and OFTEC registered to carry out servicing, and maintenance on all gas, oil, and LPG appliances, and we service and maintain all makes and models.

Why should I service my appliances regularly?

  • To keep you safe and protect you from carbon monoxide issues
  • Keep you up to date with safety standards
  • To save you money by running more efficiently
  • To help prevent untimely and expensive breakdowns
  • To comply with the manufacturer’s warranty

Boiler repairs to get you back up and running

Central heating breakdowns usually happen at the worst time. This commonly happens when temperatures drop, and the boiler has to work harder, so if it’s going to go wrong, it will generally happen during the colder period. The good news is that it can be repaired quickly, with most breakdown repairs completed during the first visit. Our engineers are fully trained to install and maintain gas, oil and LPG central heating systems.

We understand the stress and discomfort of having no hot water or central heating. If you live within Hertfordshire, we will endeavour to repair your boiler the same day we receive your call.

We’ve been repairing gas, oil-fired, and LPG boilers for over 30 years and have built a reputation for locating and fixing problems accurately. Our expert engineers are often complimented on their prompt and efficient service.
