How much does it cost to service a boiler?

Repairing your boiler will cost about $379 on average. Most homeowners spend between $186 and $597. The location of the unit, broken parts, and several other factors can drive that the price above $1,000 in some situations.

Is it worth servicing a boiler?

As we’ve mentioned, any boiler should be serviced annually, this not only ensures that the heating system is running safely and efficiently but is also a requirement to keep the warranty valid in many cases. The best time of year is during the summer, when there’s less reliance on your boiler.

Is it illegal to not service your boiler?

It is not a legal requirement for homeowners who do not rent out their property to have an annual boiler service. However, they have a duty of care to ensure their gas appliances are safe, and not liable to cause harm to themselves or others. An annual service will also keep the boiler’s warranty valid.

What happens if you don’t service your boiler?

If you don’t service your boiler for more than 12 months, this may void your warranty, so if it does break down, you won’t be able to claim the money for repairs.

Do they check radiators on a boiler service?

The flue route and integrity will also be checked, and if your boiler is an older open-flued appliance, and flue test and spillage test will also be conducted. Normally, we also use our visit to check your radiators and thermostats are all working correctly, too.

Do I need to turn boiler off before service?

If possible, it’s useful to switch off your boiler before an engineer arrives. This will allow time for your boiler to cool down before the engineer can start work, so they can get started on the job as soon as they arrive.

How long should a boiler last?

around 15 years
Generally speaking, you can expect modern boilers to last for around 15 years, or potentially even longer if you get a good quality model and service it regularly.

Does a boiler need servicing every year?

Yes, your boiler does need servicing every year to maintain your warranty for most brands. The boiler in the home has to be properly maintained in order to continue working properly. Regular servicing of the boiler can help to keep it working at its optimum level.

Is it necessary to service boiler every year?

You should have your boiler serviced annually. Not only will this ensure it’s running efficiently and safely for the year ahead, but it will also validate any manufacturer’s warrantees you have on the appliance. Regular maintenance minimises the risk of breakdown and helps lengthen the lifespan of your boiler too.

Should I replace a 20 year old boiler?

Therefore, any central heating system using a boiler that is more than 20 years old is likely to be made significantly cheaper to run by replacing with a condensing boiler. As boilers age – particularly those that are not well maintained – they become less efficient.

Can anyone install a boiler?

A non-registered person may carry out ‘wet work’, ie install water pipes and radiators for a heating system, but any work on the gas boiler itself and the final connection of the water pipework to the boiler, must be done by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

Can a boiler last 20 years?

Yes, boilers, even modern ones, will in theory last longer than 15 years. But that’s about how long it takes to become so inefficient that it’s more cost effective to buy a new one – and let’s not forget about its environmental impact, of course.
