    Boiler Repair Questions & Answers

    How soon can you fix my boiler?

    This is usually determined by the time of year and prevailing weather conditions.

    In the warmer months, we usually have availability on either the same or following day, assuming it’s a weekday.

    In contrast, during the cold times of the year, securing an appointment can take somewhat longer because of the increased workload. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.

    Can you fix my type of boiler?

    We can fix any boiler except oil boilers, LPG boilers, boilers rated over 70kW or those considered beyond economical repair. Other than that, we’ll do our best to fix it for you.

    Just bear in mind that we can’t fix some boilers under the fixed price repair offer. These will be charged at an hourly rate plus materials.

    Do I have to pay a callout fee?

    No callout fee will apply if your boiler is applicable for a fixed fee boiler repair.

    However, if your boiler is not applicable for a fixed fee boiler repair, a minimum charge of 1 hour’s labour will apply for an engineer’s visit.

    What if I need a new boiler?

    There might be times when your boiler is determined to be too costly to fix. This could be because the part needed is not readily available, or perhaps the repair bill is close to the price of a brand-new boiler. In such cases, we’re committed to informing you promptly and will clarify why a new boiler is your best option. We’ll provide you with a fully detailed quote for a new boiler and it’s entirely up to you on what steps you want to take next. Should you choose to have us install a new boiler, we’re committed to prioritising your service so that we can fit your new boiler within 48 hours.

    Boiler Servicing Questions & Answers

    Will servicing my boiler fix any faults or problems?

    Contrary to popular thought, a boiler service is not designed to deal with problems or imperfections. Its main aim is to validate that your boiler is operating safely and undertake routine maintenance duties. If your boiler is misbehaving, a service will not sort it out.

    We advise getting in touch with us to arrange your fixed price boiler repair initially. After the issue is sorted, you’ll be able to schedule your boiler for a service.

    Do I Need To Turn My Boiler Off Before It’s Serviced?

    Yes, if you can be without your boiler for a while, please turn the boiler off about 30 minutes before we arrive. This gives the boiler chance to cool down, ready for our performance tests.

    How Do I Check My Boiler Has Been Serviced Properly?

    The following tips can help you ascertain if your boiler has been attended to appropriately:

    1. Once your engineer is done with the service, a service certificate should be issued to you. This would either be electronically via email or as a physical paper certificate and should carry all details regarding the checks done on your boiler.
    2. A typical boiler servicing should take about 30 – 45 minutes for standard service and somewhere between one to one and a half hours for a complete service. If you find your service was completed in less time than this, it’s possible that it wasn’t done thoroughly.

    What Areas Do You Cover?
