Boiler Servicing: What’s Involved?

Preventative measures are better than cures, and that’s what yearly boiler servicing is all about. Businesses, industrial facilities, and commercial buildings should have their boilers inspected on a regular basis.

Among the many plumbing and heating services offered by Elite Group in the North East and neighbouring areas is boiler replacement. Have you ever wondered what’s included during a boiler’s annual maintenance checkups?

Every boiler regardless of its age requires boiler service to keep it running safely and effectively. In addition, boilers must be serviced at least once a year to meet the requirements of most manufacturer warranties and to ensure that the warranty is genuine.

Therefore, it is necessary to receive boiler servicing and boiler replacement in the North East and its surrounding regions from competent boiler servicers such as Elite Group.


Seeing as how everything appears to be in functioning order, is annual boiler servicing really necessary?

Individuals and corporations get their automobiles checked up annually during MOTs. You undoubtedly have your own yearly check-up at the doctor’s. In general, it’s better to correct things sooner rather than later. If all works well, you’ll be able to enjoy another year of freedom. Then, much like with health and automobiles, there may be warnings. They will prevent you from finding out that anything has to be replaced or repaired just as the first flakes of frost begin to fall. Also, make sure to double-check the terms of your warranty, since it may include the need for yearly maintenance in order to keep it valid.


What’s on the boiler servicing schedule?

An experienced and appropriately certified licenced engineer should do all boiler maintenance. All of Elite Group’s gas and plumbing professionals are Gas Safe qualified. Any problems that might jeopardise the safe and efficient operation of your boiler will be investigated during your yearly maintenance. These are a few examples:

  • Boiler Pressure and gas flow measurements
  • checking to make sure that all of the seals are intact and working
  • Checking all electrical connections and switches on the boiler controls
  • Corrosion and leak detection in water and gas pipelines
  • Inspecting everything to make sure it’s in functioning order
  • ensuring good operation of the chimney


There is an additional bonus here and there.

That’s not the end of the storey. Your engineer will be able to clean any items that need it. Some parts may need to be replaced. Engineers at Elite Group carry a wide variety of replacement parts, so they can likely fix the issue on the spot without the need for a second visit.


It’s also about saving time and money.

Of course, we want to ensure that your boiler is safe to use, but our concern doesn’t stop there. You may save money and extend the life of your boiler with an effective operation. You and your staff can avoid headaches if your boiler is in good operating order. We’re here to make sure you don’t have to deal with the consequences of a damaged or malfunctioning boiler every year.


Checks on the system’s pressure

The boiler, gas metre, and intake burner all have pressure gauges that measure the boiler’s operating pressure. Water mingling with the gas, obstructions, and incorrectly sized pipes can all lead to problems with pressure checks. Additional checks are made on the boiler’s expansion containers as well. If the pressure is too low, it can be increased.
