Boiler Servicing FAQs (2021)

Regardless of your boiler type or its age, it’s vital that you consider having this serviced on a regular basis by an accredited and reputable engineer. Here at Lakins Heating & Plumbing, our customers are always asking us about boiler servicing, its core advantages and what’s actually involved in an annual check. So, here are some of our most commonly asked questions and the answers that you need to help keep your boiler running cheaply and efficiently all year round! 


Who Can Service My Boiler? 

In simple terms, any heating engineer that has earned Gas Safe-registration can carry out an annual service on your boiler. However, you should note that not all plumbing engineers are qualified to undertake this type of work, you must be Gas safe registered. This is not to say that plumbing engineers aren’t highly skilled and multi-talented individuals, but they may lack the necessary accreditation to work on boilers and heating systems. 

What are the Benefits of Boiler Servicing? 

This is an excellent question, and there are numerous advantages to having your boiler serviced. Firstly, this enables engineers to diagnose and repair faults before they become too problematic, minimising any inconvenience and impact whilst, negating the risk of breakdowns in the future. This along with improved efficiency and longevity will minimise your costs.
